How to Make a Fall Wreath with Pumpkins

Posted by on Sep 14, 2015 in Uncategorized | 10 comments

Welcome to our first ever Hospitality Filled Homes tour!

My sweet friend Sonya {At Home With The Barkers} and I will be hosting tours here and there all year!

Today will be all about fall wreaths!

Our hope is that you will be inspired to do those little things that will make your house even more welcoming and inviting. This is not about perfection. This is about those little details that will inspire you to open your home to others!

I grew up in a house that always had a wreath on the front door {and several more scattered here and there throughout the house!}

My mom loved making wreaths. She made them for herself. Β She made them for friends and neighbors. I remember her coming home with bundles of silk flowers and setting up her hot glue gun and getting to work. By the end of the day, all of the neighbors would have new wreaths on their front doors!

Sweet memories. πŸ™‚

So here is a simple wreath that can be made in no time…
