I made the wreath that is on our door for fall and it was super quick, and super cheap! I paid less than $6 out of pocket for this guy.
I started out by picking up a wreath from Walmart for $3.50, and a package of fabric leaves from Michaels for $2.00. I placed the leaves the way I wanted, and attached them together, and to the wreath with a few drops of hot glue.
I knew I needed something on top of the leaves, so I grabbed a piece of scrap wood from the garage and some black and white paint I have on hand. Using the 5th Grade Cursive font (which is the same font as my logo, by the way!), I opened up a word doc and typed up the word 'welcome'. Then, I placed a sheet of paper on the screen and traced the letters.
I used the same technique for this sign as I did for the first vintage-style sign I did for our wedding. I used a small paintbrush and painted the white letters first, and then painted around the letters with the black paint. This.Sign.Is.Not.Perfect. And I love it!
I also knew that I would have to figure out how to attach this sign to the wreath and grabbed some cup hooks from the garage and screwed them into the back.
This only took about 30 minutes, and voila!
I think it really ties everything together on the fall porch and looks great on our red door!
