seasons change

Well officially FALL is here but weather wise - it is STILL summer
and not just a nice summer but a AFRICAN summer -
hot, humid & dry---ick...sorry but I am just so over this heat!
I know I complain alot about it - but I would much rather be in
rain all year around...and cold....LOVE
So a few posts ago I shared my updated door wreaths
and so in keeping with the crafter in me - that has to change things up
almost monthly - I wanted to make my front door a bit more
in tune with the FALL so I added some stuff to ring in the season
I cut out some triangles to make a banner for the wreaths - out of scrap muslin...see nothing to perfect
then used my stamps to add my saying

then because I wanted to be able to change this out seasonally -
I just tied the bakers twine to the muslin scraps around the wreath.
I also made a cool burlap flower and this to, is pinned on

I am really liking the look of this - nothing to over the top but
still says FALL...and after all that is what I am going for.

I am linking this up to the following parties this week
have a crafty weekend

Very cute! I really want our weather to cool down here too so I can focus on fall related projects. Love the look of your wreath.

We must be on the same wave length... because I am so over summer right now but we are still experiencing over 100 degree days....

Your wreaths are awesome and I just might borrow the banner and flower for the grape vine wreaths I made last year and just put out a couple of days ago.... It will really dress them up.

Thanks for sharing your clever wreaths with us!
