Duller Wreath

It’s that time of year– When we nestle into our homes, start baking bread and decorate. *sigh*no, no I won’t be baking bread unless I want my hinnie bigger NO!!!…BUT I did break out the good ol glue gun and only burned my fingers ohh … 10  2 times.  (yes, it’s been a while since it was plugged in.)

Look at me re-cycling an old wreath (back side) Now could I call myself  “green” ? 🙂

Items to choose from.

Nekkid door

The Basic  “In need of decoration Front DOOR” … seriously,  can’t you hear it screaming for a make over?

Duller Wreath

I’m thinking it looks much nicer… do you?

Nekkid Pump RS

The classic orange Autumn pumpin, asking for the same bit of make up.  I am not really sure if this was the REAL before pumpkin or not- I took  just a couple of photos, then forgot which one I dressed up.

Dressed pumpkin RS

I used my black permanent marker– but I am thinking I should  have used paint… (Note to self…next year)

    Great looking wreath.    Definitely says Fall!

  10. Karen says:

    I love that you used a more burgundy color palette  in your wreath rather than bright orange.  I also love your pumpkin with the arrangement in it and the drawings on the skin. 

  11. Carol says:

    Your wreath is stunning!  Love your mosaic, too.  Guess it’s time to get out my fall things!

  12. Karen Cox says:

    What a lovely wreath, and I love what you did with the pumpkin.  Gorgeous mosaic to celebrate the beginning of Fall.  I just went out to get a cinderella pumpkin yesterday.  It’s such a beautiful time of year.

  17. Hi, Claudia, thank you for stopping by the party! And it’s nice to meet you. What a beautiful wreath on your black door. I love it, very Fallish and adds so much this time of year. I’ve got to get busy & get my little bit of Fall out. I don’t do all that much, but I’m having a Fall party on Oct. 1st, so I’d love to have you join me for that too.  Hope you’ll come back often.

  19. What a wonderful wreath…but that pumpkin! Loooove the doodling! Great post!

  20. Meri says:

    Spectacular door decoration! I’m getting my door (and house) painted in a week or two, depending on weather, and then my door will need its first decoration against the new, richer color.

  21. Andrea says:

    Neat idea…I never would have thought to use a permanent marker or paint to draw a design on the pumpkin…but I will now 🙂

  22. Jane says:

    The wreath looks so nice….really “pops” off the black front door…love it.  Also love the decorated pumpkin…you are very handy with the black marker!

  23. Carol Harris says:

    I so love that wreath!  It reminds me of a hat I once had made ( I live in NY, and we love our hats) anyway, what insight and talent you have.  Thank you so much for sharing.

    I was totally inspired by your blog, so I applied your style of your work to my own, I dont know how to share my results with you, but Claudia, if I can express some form of flattery, I think you broadened my autumnal touches to their final results of stunning, this is my thanking you. Let me know if I can forward some photos of the work I did, I also went over to my daughters and did some spunkin pumpkin work at her place, its wonderful.

  40. domain says:

    This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great
    job. I really loved what you had to say, and more
    than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  41. Hi, yeah this post is in fact pleasant and I have learned lot of things from it about blogging.

    thanks.

    These gifts are great way for showing appreciation.
    It never ceases to amaze me how identical human physiology
    is yet how complex and versatile our thinking can be.
