Ready for a Sweet Fall!

In addition to catching up on my painting orders this week, I was able to squeeze in some quality time with my 3 year-old daughter.  Our fall treasure hunt began with a trip to Lowes, for some gorgeous mums that we purchased for less than $2.50 each!  Then on to the Dollar Tree where we picked out some pretty silk flowers, ribbon, faux pumpkins/squash and jack-o-lantern candy baskets.  Back at home, we sat down in the middle of the living room floor and proceeded to put our fall wreath together.  The mums were placed inside the candy baskets, minus the handle.  We had a great time and I think our finished projects turned out pretty great, not to mention the wonderful time that my daughter and I shared together.

I use the same grape vine wreath throughout the year, just cutting the individual flowers from the bush, and pushing them into while weaving the stems through the grapevines.  Once the season is over, It's back to the dollar store to gather more flowers, ribbons, decorations for the next holiday or season.

These mums were less than $2.50 at Lowe's.  I placed them in a halloween candy basket that I purchased from the dollar store.
