Met Monday

I've been working on fall wreaths for the last week. I was making 2 for my front doors & one for my friend Vicki. (Hey Vicki!!). Why has it taken a week?? Because it's still in the 90's here & doesn't feel the least bit like fall! I started out with this.
I worked on Vicki's during the LSU game last week. This is the final product.
The bow doesn't look very good in this picture. These are the ones I did for my doors. In fact these aren't very good pictures at all. Oh well. You get the idea.

I bought just about everything from Michael's. I'm usually a Hob Lob girl but I didn't find that they had as much stuff as usual. I really love the ribbon I used. I bought 2 different ones & mixed them together.  Here's a close up.
The orange ribbon is iridescent so it shimmers & looks different shades of orange. I didn't hang them yet because I forgot to buy wreath hangers. That's added to my to do list, along with decorating the rest of the house for fall. It's supposed to be cooler this week, meaning in the 80's instead of the 90's so hopefully I'll get into a fall frame of mind! 

I'm linking with Susan at Between Naps On The Porch for Metamorphosis Monday. Check it out!


I was invited by The Tablescaper to link up to Seasonal Sundays too!

Toodles!!

  1. Your wreaths are so pretty! The bows are incredible! I've yet to make my own wreath. But, I did print out instructions from another blog 2 weeks ago. I've been carrying it around in my HUGE purse (hubby says it looks like a diaper bag minus the diapers...silly guy!). Anyway, if mine comes out half as beautiful as yours, I'll be happy enough.

  7. Traci I love those wreaths! You always joke about not sewing but I couldn't make a wreath to save my life! Maybe we could swap sometime, I'll sew you something and you can craft me something! :-)

  8. It must be hard to think of fall crafts when it's 90 degrees! They turned out beautifully!

  9. I love wreath making and bows are "my thing" so I really enjoyed your post. The ribbon is gorgeous. I have such a weakness when it comes to ribbon. I love it when I find it at Hobby Lobby half price. You did a wonderful job.

  14. That's so funny that you called your blog the The Traci Chronicles, because I had considered calling mine The Tracy Chronicles... LOL Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your lovely comment.

    Cheers

  16. As usual, Traci, I always enjoy your blogs. You write just exactly like you talk and I can just "hear" you in your blog posts. Your wreaths turned out great! I noticed in Sunday's paper that the fall decor at Hob Lob was 50% off now, so I am headed there this afternoon! Carolyn
