Fall @Our Cottage

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We did and it was spent hanging out with a friend and then down time with one another until the baseball game came on lol .I'm sharing this @Home Maker On A Dime ,I'm Topsy Turvy ,Uncommon Slice Of SurburbiaAn Oregon Cottage and A Bowl Full Of Lemons hope you like it !
So while Shan watched I decided to make a quick visit to the local Dollar General store to buy candy and a festive bowl for her office and that's when I ran into these:
 I remembered that earlier I saw this wreath project over @Many Moments Of Me w/ Tatum  it was so creative that I wanted to try to make my own. Hers was a no cost wreath with really great fall leaves that she picked herself. I wish I could have done the same but the one oak tree in my yard is still green. So my Dollar store find worked just as well.
I also used a piece of cardboard saved from my recent cookware purchase I knew it would come in handy.

I cut it into a circle using two different sized pot tops as my guide and this formed the base for my wreath. Then I hot glued my silk leaves around the circle starting with bigger leaves on the outside and working my way in with some smaller ones.When I was done I hot glued two magnets on the back that I wasn't using to hold it in place on our front door because its metal.

 Well this is the end result:
It looks so cute on our front door and it was done for only two dollars and it makes me happy So I wanted to share with everyone over @House In Roses ,  Finding Fabulous  and Coastal Charm along with Be Colorful .
