With the arrival of Fall, I wanted to add some of the season to our entry way.
I purchased the yellow mums from Costco (2@$15/ea), the scarecrows from Joann's Fabrics (2@$5/ea) and the parts for a pumpkin wreath at Hobby Lobby ($20). For about $60 we have a colorful and welcoming entry for our guests. Of course, closer to Halloween we will be carving pumpkins for the front steps.
The wreath was a fun project to make and was very easy to complete. I think it took me about 20 minutes. The idea for the wreath from Better Homes & Gardens (http://www.bhg.com/). All you need are a grapevine wreath, some plastic mini-pumpkins, ribbon and a hot glue gun.
Apply the hot glue to the bottom of the pumpkin and place on the wreath. Press down and hold for several seconds to ensure that the glue makes contact with the vines. Continue adding pumpkins until the front of the wreath is covered. Leave a small space for the ribbon and bow at the top of the wreath. Once the glue has hardened completely (just a couple of minutes) tie on your ribbon to create the bow. You are now ready to hang on your front door.
