I started by making a little gift for my mom; a Deco Mesh wreath! I got into wreath making a couple of years ago. I loved the mesh wreaths at the craft store, but hated paying such high prices for something I could make myself. My mom loves owls, so I started with an owl ribbon, and just picked out the accessories for the wreath from there. Be forewarned, the following pictures are a terrible quality. I just snapped them with my phone, and the lighting in my house is really wonky.
Seriously, how cute is this ribbon?
My craft store haul. I love those pheasant feathers!
My mom is also a big fan of burlap, so we went with a mesh that closely resembled that material. I also had some left over mesh from a wreath I made for charity a few months ago, so I added what remained from that roll just to make the wreath extra full and fluffy.
After creating the wreath, it was time for the fun part...decorating! I just placed the decor into the wreath, and then added some glue to give it some extra security.
I really love the colors in this wreath! It is definitely one of my favorites so far! I plan on painting a wooden owl to place on the top. I just have to wait for the template to arrive. For now though, it has a small clip-on owl that my mom found at the store to fill in that space. I just forgot to take a picture of that. Oops! If anyone is interested in making Deco Mesh wreaths themselves, I recommend you check out the video below. It was how I learned. It's very simple and a lot of fun!
I also hit Yankee Candle again. I adore their candles. They went on sale over the weekend, so I was able to snag even more of my favorite fall votives for only a dollar! My name is Kayleigh, and I am an addict. At least the house will smell amazing for a while!
Spiced Pumpkin is the bee's knees y'all!
As I write this, I am sitting in a cold room, with one of my candles lit, imagining that it is October. It totally distracts from the fact that it is 90+ degrees outside! Just three more weeks to go!
Happy (Early) Fall!
