Fall Fall..I Love Fall!!!

I love fall!! It is my favorite season. September is painful for me because the anticipation for fall is so strong I can hardly handle it. I love leaves, pumpkins and the desire the cold, crisp weather brings for baking. This year I wanted to make my own leaf wreath and although it took some time it turned out totally cute and the best part was it was FREE!!

What you will need to make your own-
1- Wire Hanger stretched out straight and then formed into the shape you want your wreath to be. I made mine a circle but I saw a square one recently that was adorable.
2- A tree full of leaves you need quite a few.
3- A monkey in the form of a small child that can climb the tree and shake out the pretty reddish colored leaves that are the best.
4-Some free time. I did half of it as the monkeys were shaking the leaves out of the trees and gathering them off of the ground. I finished the other half after the monkeys went to bed and I was watching some mommy tv.

Then presto you have a beautiful wreath for your front door.

I also worked on Elliots room today spray painting and such blog post to come soon:)
