You see the truth is as much as I love seasonal decorating it seems like I never have the time to do it.
Probably because I always have some major unfinished house project that needs some attention so I feel guilty about spending time doing things that don't really need to happen.
But really, we all know, that decorating the front entry of our homes for fall is an absolute must do! Especially since I'm the neighbor that totally skipped over the whole pumpkin month last year - yep, I was totally that neighbor - with dead ferns by her front door on Halloween - now that is scary.
So I needed to redeem myself, but I still have other more important things to attend to - like stripes - cough - that need to be taped and painted still.
I threw this together in less than 30 minutes.
Yes, we still have that terrible looking brass intercom doorbell thingy. I have got to do something about that hideousness someday.
But back to the thrown together fall situation I've got going on over here. I only bought the lettuce/cabbage? plants - what are they called? and the pumpkins - all from Kroger - big ups to grocery stores that carry plants so we can skip the extra trip to the garden center!
Then I came home and played a little game called - put the kids to work gathering fallen branches in the backyard. I love that game.
I raided my fall decor and pulled out a leaf garland then just wrapped it around the boxwood wreath I already had hanging on the door.
Bam! Done! Moving on........
The kids got tired of playing "gather branches". Weird huh? So I started a new game - spray,stuff, stack & hide - say whaaaaaaaaaat? Yeah - check it out below.
Sprayed the branches white - then Stuffed them in the plant - then Stacked the plant on top of a planter I turned over - then Hid the container the plant is in with a fall wreath (I bought at Hob Lob last year).
Like I said - spray, stuff, stack and hide - most fun game ever. ;) It takes like 5 minutes. Woot!
If you're still scratching your head - here's a close-up.
So there you have it yo - a fall front entry in 30 minutes. I mean you won't be seeing this on the cover of a magazine, but hey, it's better than dead ferns right?!
Have you decorated your front entry for fall yet? How is it already October? I mean really? What the heck happened to poor September?
