Fall is almost here. Or at least I’m going to keep telling myself that as a bathe myself in cool water and dream of the days when I don’t have to take multiple showers a day.
At the end of July I walked into the craft store and saw the aisles teeming with pumpkins and autumn colors and almost wanted to turn and walk back out. “It’s summer!” I cried.
Fast forward one week, ONE WEEK, later to the first of August when I walked back into that craft store and thought to myself, “oh yes, it’s almost fall.”
What a difference a week makes.
August in Texas is hot and even though it’s not technically fall, school is starting up and the hope of cool weather is calling my name.
Last year I showed you this DIY Fall Hoop Wreath and to this date, it is still my favorite wreath that I’ve ever made.
Maybe it’s the colors, maybe it’s the decoupaged hoop. I’m not sure what it is but I still love it.
The other day I found it while I was cleaning out a closet upstairs and to be honest, I did a little dance of joy.
If you remember, I had used a pressed cardboard (MDF) hoop to make this wreath.
The sad news is that this hoop did not hold up outside in the elements. Even though it was on our covered porch, with time the hoop slowly turned in to an oval and then it broke altogether.
So this week, I’m going to transfer it to a metal hoop or possibly a very thin grapevine wreath.
I still love the colors, the style, the texture of the blue bits on the top versus the hanging greenery on the bottom. I just love it. It makes me happy.
Fall is almost here. Stay with me through the 100 degree weather, the cold front is coming!
