outside decor.

Since the weather has finally changed and we have immediately went from turning the heat off to turning the air on (crazy) we are spending more time out on our back patio/porch. We still aren’t sure what we are calling this area yet. Anyways, besides the point. We are enjoying it more. We have spent some time planting flowers and herbs, cleaning it up, re-arranging furniture, still looking for some chairs for the table I re-did but all in all we are making the space ours. I was happy to see that the previous owners already had screws in place to hang things on the brick wall. Thank you very much! Last weekend I did a little garage sale hunting. Out of 6 garage sales I came home with a 10 cent frame. Definitely not worth the gas money I spent driving all over but whatever. Now I just needed something to put in this frame. Using an idea I found through Pinterest and a little of my own creativity and supplies I had in my craft bins I came up with this fun and funky little wreath. I started with a plain styrofoam wreath. Wrapped it in fabric and hot glued it to secure. I made several different sizes and colors of fabric rosettes and hot glued those puppies on wherever. I cut out some little leaves to add. I cut off some lace trim from an old hankie and cut some little triangles to make the cute little bunting across the middle. And there it is. It hangs nicely on our back patio. And don’t worry it hangs straight although the picture makes it look totally crooked.

What outdoor decorations do you have?
