But back to this month's issue.
|Actual from HGTV magazine online... link HERE|
I was going to just do the classic wreath as seen in the magazine but then I saw this little number at Michaels and thought it would be fun to add in.
Obviously me and gold-leaf have a few kinks to work out...
either that or its stupid and is so difficult that no normal human-being can do it and the leaf is just too G-D-thin and it gets everywhere and before you know it your toddler is running around with gold in his hair like a freakin' 3ft-magical, self-destructing unicorn. (sigh) I'll try again some other time.
So back to old-faithful... spray paint... how I've missed you old friend.
Since I'm pretty sure its a class 1 felony to steal leaves from a neighbor's tree without permission, there are no pictures of this step. Just picture me, dressed in black, playing it cool on a walk with my dogs, pretending they're pooping so I can rip a couple leaves off a neighbors magnolia tree. If anyone WAS watching, Im sure they thought my dogs had some sort of diarrhea problem with the number of times I said out loud "Poop again?" as I bent down and yanked a few leaves off this low hanging tree. I kid you not when I say I ran back to my house thinking I was being followed. I now understand why people steal; such a RUSH! (jk, dont steal, stealing is bad... should I go and leave money under this tree as penance? No, then people will think its a money tree... ugh, the web of lies!!)
When I got home and off my stealer's high, I threw 7 leaves into my spray paint box.
Fast forward a couple hours, a random Home Depot family trip, several readings of Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site, and a glass of wine later, I was back at it.
Before I glued on any leaves, I couldn't decide if my Y should go above or below my wreath.
I also decided to cut my foam wreath in half so it would sit more flush to the door and did a quick, sloppy spray paint so the white wouldn't stand out like a sore thumb.
Ugh, let's have this 100+ degree heat end Dallas! Mama needs her baggy sweaters and XL yoga pants back in her life!
So what do you guys think? I know the colors are different from HGTV but I almost think they are a little MORE Fall.
Anyway, Im happy with it. And I'm also glad I did it with
If you have any questions, I would love to answer them! Happy Fall everyone!
