I tried...really I did. Last week I got my fall stuff out and decorated my mantel. It was beautiful and it drove me crazy. You see, I equate fall with halloween and I absolutely love decorating for halloween. I tried to be patient and just do the fall thing, but I couldn't do it...I'm weak. Those whimsical pumpkin topiaries were calling my name from the attic. Who says you can't put up your halloween decor in September?
If you missed this post from last year, click here to read how we made them. Note my lovely assistant's arms!
This is my front entry from last year when my door was red. Hated that color, but it did make my black feather wreath pop. Unfortunately, now you can't see it at all.
I put the fluer de lis canvas behind the wreath thinking it would make it stand out more, but that didn't work. Maybe a white feather wreath is in my future.
I love this wreath! Up close, you can see it just fine. The black feathers are irridescent and depending on the light, they have hints of purple and green. I really want it to stand out more, so I guess I'll use it somewhere else. I think a trip to Hobby Lobby and a little wreath crafting is in order now.....fingers crossed that feather boas are on sale this week!
