Making Wreaths

My newest craft hobby is evidently making wreaths.


I saw this wreath in a catalog for autumn, and thought, “I can make that!”  I already had the gourds/pumpkins and some berries.  So off to Garden Ridge I went, and returned with some fall flowers, a grapevine wreath, and some ribbon.  Who knew these wreaths that they sell for $50 and $60 in the store were so easy to make?  A little hot glue, a little wire, and voila!  (I will say that trying to teach myself to make a bow was a trying experience, but I am pleased with the outcome of my very first bow-making attempt)

Next up:  A Christmas wreath with a UGA theme.  Fun times!

I have never done much decorating for holidays other than Christmas, but I think I have found a new way to decorate without having to store too much stuff for each season.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
