Easy, Breezy DIY Fall Wreath

Goodmorning friends! How's your Tuesday morning going so far?

It has been such a blessing that I don't have to be anywhere until 10:30am on Tuesdays. Since I'm an early riser, it gives me lots of time to eat breakfast sloooowly, soak up the sweet fall morning, and sip warm tea at my own pace. I dipped wheat bread slices in an egg and milk mixture, sprinkled them generously with cinnamon, toasted the bread in a bit of butter, added a pat of peanutbutter, and covered the french toast in maple syrup. It's been a very, very good morning.

While eating breakfast, I read a few chapters in my new favorite read, Bread and Wine-by Shauna Niequist, and it has done so much for my Jesus-loving, food-craving soul. I really, really recommend it.

Afterwards, I hung our new fall wreath on the front door in between finishing off my last sips of tea.

And I thought you might would like to know how to make an easy fall wreath as well! Remember last week when I told you about my favorite mantels and fall decor? Well I made a wreath and was SO surprised with how easy and fun it was to create.

Pick up a grapevine wreath from your local craft store (I went to Michael's and it was $4.99 plus I had a 40% off coupon!), two spools of ribbon (around $2.99 each I do believe), and your favorite flowers (.79 cents each from Michael's as well!) and a hot glue gun. That's IT! All you need!

Snip the tops off of your flowers, hot glue to the bottom half of the wreath, tie your ribbon into a bow, hot glue onto wreath...and TADA! Easiest, sweetest fall wreath! And an inexpensive wreath too!

Happy Tuesday morning! I hope you are able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the cooler weather today :)
