If you saw my earlier post, you know what I've got on my front door this year. A couple seasons ago I designed this fall wreath for the front door at our old house:The home was a quaint brick two-story and I always loved that old rusty door knocker that came with it. Anyhoo, this particular wreath is also one of the projects in my Inspirational Home book. I fastened a satin ribbon into a bow and gently intertwined it into the wreath. Then I marked the areas of the ribbon tails where I would position my words. I took the ribbon off and penciled in "give" and "thanks." Using burgundy acrylic craft paint, I carefully free-hand painted the letters in a script font. After they were completely dry, I put the ribbon back on the wreath.
This week I received a gorgeous new fall wreath in the mail:
And the best part is, it came with a ribbon that already has a lovely message on it! "Give Thanks to the Lord."
The dried grains make a beautiful arrangement and I love that natural look! It's a new product of DaySpring and can be purchased online here.
