Fall Door Wreath DIY

I've finally started decorating my front porch for Fall.
I love creating my own wreaths each year.  
This year I just fell in love with all the gorgeous
 little pumpkins available everywhere. 
 So my theme was born.

I picked my pumpkins and gourds up at HomeGoods.
The wreaths were ones that I had stashed 
from a sale at Joann's for 99 cents
I found some beautiful sunflowers and pinecones 
at Joann's too.

I always keep a few grapevine wreaths in my 
stash so that I'm ready when the 
creative mood hits me.  They get very 
cheap at the end of summer so I stock up.
Add a little hot glue and my wreath starts taking shape.

My finished DIY Wreath.
I love it.

These towels were on sale so I picked up a 
couple for chair pillows.

10 minutes on the sewing machine and I had pillows.
So simple.  Just fold your towel in half and sew 
both sides first.  Then add your filling;
I used and old bed pillow and took out the 
stuffing and reused it.  Then sew up the bottom
and you have a chair pillow.  Sew simple.

Enjoy the season.  Be creative.

I need to get busy and get my fall wreath made - have had the supplies for a few weeks but too busy with crochet and knitting projects or creating new juices in my juicer. Thanks for sharing this - beautiful wreath! I love the idea of using the towels for a pillow, too - will have to remember that.
