Pretty Fall Florals

Last week I showed you some pretty pots and tins that I loved.  Well this week I was inspired to make this…..

 

 

 

 

I absolutely love fall. It is probably my favorite time of year.  All those bright happy colors.  So once I started I couldn’t stop and I ended up making several more items.  What is your favorite time of year?

I was very busy! I am Happy with all my projects and the way they turned out.  Seeing all those bright colors make me smile.  They remind me that the Holidays are fast approaching.  Time for extra family and extra family gatherings.  Quality time.

Inspiration for Fall

 

Today I was out shopping at one of my favorite craft stores.  They were already for fall and were in the process of putting out Christmas.  All I could think is OMG Christmas alreadyyyyyyyyyy.. ..It seemed so early  but then I was distracted by all these pretty things I can put flowers into.  They were 50% off too!!!! SCORE!   I just love them.  So I am thinking these lovely things will inspire some really pretty fall floral arrangements.   The small white drawer inspired me to make this…..

I love the cottage farmhouse vibe these give off.  Its one my favorite styles.

I have actually been inspired a lot this week.  I have been working hard on new pretty things like these…..

 

 

Earlier in the week I was inspired to make these…

 

 

I hope you all enjoyed my latest creations.  Have a fabulous week.  Once I decide what I am putting into all those awesome containers I will let you all know!!!

Pretty Summer Wreath

a3

I decided to make a summer flower wreath.  I chose stunning ranunculus flowers, pretty white roses,  and some random white floral.  The ribbon is a pretty gold brown with lovely gold threading that creates a pretty leafy pattern.

I love wreaths.  They add charm to a home.  They create a warm welcome to our home when they are hung on a front porch.  They are cheery and beautiful.  They are versatile and lovely in most any room.

The following items were used for this project

10-12 inch grapevine wreath

3-4 large flowers of your choice and color

a bunch of smaller flowers (one bush normally)

a floral that can be used as a filler with long stems

Your choice of ribbon ( ribbons with wire is the easiest to use for bows)

a glue gun and glue sticks

floral wire.

 

When assembling I find it easier to attach the bow where you want it then start adding the flowers.   I use both wire and glue.  I want to make sure they are attached and that they do not come loose.

 

I hope you enjoy the end result.  I think it turned out beautiful.  I just love that pop of orange, red and gold the ranunculus flowers add.  Makes for very dramatic beautiful color.

Have a fabulous day everyone!

Tam =)
