DIY Fall Wreath

DIY Fall Wreath

As I was preparing to make a diy fall wreath, I remembered my mom and her friends from a ladies club making fall wreaths with pinecones and pecans. At the time it seemed like a huge production. I thought they were crazy, which I guess was a normal reaction for a ten-year old, but all the wreaths turned out beautifully. The wreath my mom made was placed in the middle of our square coffee table, with a large glass hurricane and a candle in the center.

It was perfect! After all these years, I wanted to make one too or something like it. Here’s a list of supplies you will need to make your own DIY Fall Wreath. Continue reading

How To Make An Ironing Board Cover

Ironing may not be my favorite household chore but it’s somewhere on my top five list. I think of ironing as a repetitive activity requiring little concentration, therefore I can watch a movie while ironing and be completely engrossed. Win-win!

My old ironing board cover was looking worn and a little stained, but the bigger problem was the pad underneath. After a few years of use, the foam pad was deteriorating. I decided to make a new cover with fabric that I had on hand and reused parts from the old cover. Continue reading
