I wanted a new fall wreath as mine has gotten a bit faded, but I didn’t want to spend a lot on it. I found some cute ones I really liked, but they were $70 or more. I just couldn’t see spending so much for a wreath I would only use for a year or two.
Did you know you can make a pretty but simple wreath all on your own ?
All you will need are these things: everything here cost me about $20.
I started by removing the tags from the flowers and arranging them on the wreath as I wanted. I then glued them down and secured the ends with floral wire.
I then added a cute little bow to my wreath.
My wreath was cute but it needed something more. I added this B that I already had.
Have you DIY’d any fall wreaths this year? I’d love to see them!
The temperatures are still a little cool around here to start setting out spring flowers, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t started thinking about what I want to plant.
I’ve recently happened upon all sorts of neat ideas for turning things into unique planters. Recycling unwanted household items by filling them with beautiful flowers is a win-win situation, in my opinion.
My grandpa gave me this cute old chair. It had a metal slat seat in it. I took the seat out and popped a planter into it. Doesn’t it look cute with this fern in it?
I want an old washtub so I can do this! Wouldn’t that be cute?
This toolbox planter is absolutely adorable.
I need a carriage now so I can plant flowers in it.
I have never thought about planting anything in a flour sifter but this is pretty cute!
I hope you all have a great week! Join us on Friday for our spring home tour.
Last week, we shared our new polytunnel greenhouse. We have been working on it, since it is nearing the time we usually start our seeds for our garden.
This week, we have begun working on the inside. We just need to purchase a heater and install our irrigation system and we will be good to go.
The inside currently looks like this:
For the shelves, we purchased 5 5-tier Muscle Tech resin garage shelves. The fifth tier made them too tall so I reduced them to 4 tier and was able to make one more shelf out of them. This way, if these shelves don’t work for the greenhouse, I can repurpose them in our attic or garage. I wanted something with holes for drainage and ventilation that wasn’t expensive, wouldn’t rot or rust and could be used for something else if they didn’t work here.
We have also ordered a potting bench that hasn’t arrived yet.
We are looking at several different heaters and we are leaning toward this one:
And as for hydration:
I can’t wait to show you the finished product! Check back next week!
