(I love) DIYs

Sep 27, 2008

Thought I'd share two fairly simple DIY projects I finished up today:

The top letters I had blogged about before but thought I'd share a photo of the final version. Here's the doors they'll be gracing.

But, the magnolia wreath I started and finished today. If you remember, we collected loads of magnolia leaves awhile ago and while I wasn't thrilled with how much color they lost in the preserving process, I decided to make a wreath anyway - And I love the outcome. I actually like it even more than the Williams-Sonoma wreath I was thinking about buying! The rusty burnt orange and soft sage greens make it seem more fall-like ... even more holiday-like! I'm going to make one more and we're going to hang them at our wedding site (to cover up some signs we don't like) :o)

How did I do it? Simple. With a hot glue gun. Just stick the small branches of leaves into the wreath and glue down to secure. End of story.

Who else is getting crafty and making their own wreaths and visual decor?
