Rustic Wreath {Burlap and Pearls}

Thanks for visiting!! Did you know you can buy this wreath on Etsy? Check it out!

This was one of my favorite weekend projects to date. I was inspired by this wreath over on etsy, and decided I wanted to make one of my own! The first step was to make felt flowers.

You need:
-a wreath (any kind you like! This could be pretting with a fabric-wrapped styrofoam wreath too)

-glue

The Thanksgiving Table

I broke out our new china, and while I realize that I did not necessarily set it "properly," I set it "prettily."… Continue reading The Thanksgiving Table

Thanksgiving Napkin Rings

I am not sure if napkin rings are really still a "thing" or not, but I couldn't find any I liked over the weekend. SO, who needs 'em? Using a little twine and lace, I tied up my new gold-accented napkins with a little love. I can't wait to finish setting the table for Thanksgiving,… Continue reading Thanksgiving Napkin Rings

Argyle Autumn Wreath

This weekend was autumn perfection. We tailgated in the sunshine. We saw Ohio State beat Wisconsin in the Shoe. We went to church, the grocery, and made chili in the crock pot, and ate it while we watched football. And last night, I made a new little wreath for autumn, out of materials and fabrics I already had.… Continue reading Argyle Autumn Wreath
