Fifty Cent Fall Wreath

I am a lazy crafter.  
I know I'm not alone, I know who you are, like me you have made no secret of it.  I have been pinning and pinning.  Beautiful fall wreaths.  Just take a look at my Pinterest wreath board .  I had good intentions, that is till I stumbled on a fifty cent garage sale wreath.  I can't buy the fix'ins any cheaper and then there is a time factor, oh and that lazy thing.

Twigs for new stems
It needed a little love and it really isn't anything like what I envisioned or pinned.  But I can get over that, it was only fifty cents.  Really all it needed was some hot glue and new stems made with twigs from the yard.  The craft box has lots of Autumn odds and ends, so I tucked in a bit of fabric, some of that gray mossy stuff, some ribbon, and a few dried corn... shucks?  Husks?  What are those corny things called?

Mudroom Door
In any case I have a fall wreath on the side door.  Hanging on September 1st ahead of the game, unlike the summer wreath that never happened.  For .50¢.  The metal #4 happened to be the right color so I stuck it on there too - for Fall, the fourth season.  Notice all the nice little twig stems in the pumpkins and gourds?

And did I mention that it cost me fifty cents?  

This sparked me to change the front door deco too.  That lazy crafter thing entered again.  Why spend all that time creating a new wreath when all I really have to do to change it up is slap on some fall flowers and chalk in orange.  Right?

So that's what I did.  Done.  I didn't even erase the welcome and I see it looks like crap.  I'll put some nicer chalking on there when I get a minute or I'm not lazy.  Or when I have to erase that to write welcome Winter.  

I might just make one of those beautiful wreaths I have pinned.  I have a few more doors I could put one on.  Did I mention that one only cost fifty cents?

  1. Well, now you can join all the wonderful fall wreaths on Pinterest, 'cuz I'm pinning yours!

    I didn't even have a Christmas wreath last year, much less a spring, summer or fall one, so I'm impressed with your Sept. 1 wreath.

  3. I am so ready for fall! I love your fifty cent wreath! Lookin' good. I make them to sell, but hardly ever put a wreath up around here....not even for Christmas. Maybe I will this year!

    Hope you're having a great weekend! My Marine nephew is here..yeah! It's so nice to see him!

  5. Hey, it's not called lazy! It's called being creative...and cheap...the first two words people use to describe me! Wear it proudly!

  6. Great wreath Bliss... even if you did only spend 50 cents! I'm not really ready for fall.... That means I have to change up all the summer stuff and I'm too busy getting ready to go back to school. Last year I seem to have skipped right over fall and went straight to Halloween. I'll have to be better this year!

  9. I forget. How much did you spend on that wreath? BTW, I could read your entire post in my email. So, the truncating thingiemabob didn't work.

  10. For fifty cents, why not. I think it is cute and love the front door one, too. You are ahead of me.

  12. I love your wreaths, Bliss...your house looks ready for fall! I love how you re-used things inexpensively! We already have leaves all over...so it looks like fall here, too!

  13. You showed your fifty cent wreath a lot of love and it shows! I love them both!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Your so good at wreaths. I love them.

  15. You'd never guess that was a yard sale find that got a touch up! The chalkboard wreath is the perfect answer for we lazier types! ~ Maureen

  16. I think both wreaths are fantastic! No one would ever know you only paid 50 cents. Maybe, just maybe, you're smarter than the rest of us! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well you know I am truly the laziest of them all Bliss. Your wreath is adorable, looks like a million and one 50 cents!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Nothing wrong with working with what ya got! You've elevated a .50 wreath to just what you needed...which is more important than how much it cost in the first place. I like the chalkboard platter as welcome sign, and am so lazy I might rip that one off :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. This looks fantastic and every bit as good as the wreath that took hours and much more money. I my friend, am a lazy crafter as well. This is probably why I have more than average epic craft fails. No patience. Been thinking about that Fall wreath today, we will see if it actually makes it from my Pinterest board into my home.....

  20. It may have cost you 50 cents but looks like you spent $50. I love it. These lazy craft projects are truly the best. As my kinfold would say....thats dagburn perdy. :)

  21. One question - how much was it?!

  23. LOVE it, Bliss! Makes me want to make a fall wreath! (But then again, I'm fighting that lazy thing too. LOL!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's a mighty fine 50 cent wreath. I gotta say I saw all the wreaths you pinned and wondered if you were actually gonna make one...then you went and made 2. Now I gotta remove your name from the project procrastinator pool :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I went out and bought some supplies today for a fall wreath, but it definitely didn't cost me 50 cents!

    ReplyDelete
  26. It hit triple digits over the weekend again, but that didn't stop me from pulling out all my fall stuff in the basement! I love this - had to pin it. :)

  34. I might be a princess of lazy crafters, since you are the queen:) Can't go wrong with 50cents!

    I just "made" my fall wreath, my husband is already upset about how "bloggy" the house is becoming:)

  36. I see my joke is old hat (now that I've actually read your other comments). I would have got here sooner, and put my comment in first, if I wasn't so lazy !
