Easy DIY Boho Fall Yarn Wreath

I love inexpensive seasonal decor, don't you? Earlier this year, I made a fun Spring "Boho" wreath,  and I knew I had to make another one using Fall colours. When you see how easy this wreath is to make, you are going to immediately hop in your car to get the supplies you need to make a boho fall yarn wreath. Check out the photos and step by step instructions below.



Start by getting the supplies you need: yarn in Fall colours, a wire wreath frame, and twine.



Then:


1) Use a plain gold wire wreath frame, or wrap a wire wreath frame with twine (securing periodically with hot glue).


2) Wrap yarn around a piece of cardboard (the length that you want your hanging to be). My cardboard was 20 inches, and I wrapped it around 15 times.



3) Cut one end of the wrapped yarn and loop the strands over the wreath frame and pull through... per the photos below. Repeat 5 times with whatever colours you want to use.



4) Trim the bottom of the yarn with sharp scissors.



5) Embellish the top of the frame with pom poms. (I tied mine on, and then secured with hot glue.)

Note: If you have never made pom pom befores, you can check out the video here.



That's it! I just love how it turned out. Don't you?




I love a good DIY piece of home decor, and I love that you can customize this Boho yarn wreath using whatever colour yarn you desire. What colours will you use to make your own unique piece of Fall decor?

FREE Fall Print

Don't you love updating your decor when the seasons change? It really is a fun way change things up, and it's easy and inexpensive to do. Today, I am sharing a FREE Fall print that  you can download, print, and pop in a dollar store frame. Cute, right?!?




To print a copy of the "Fall Menu" print I designed: click on the photo below, right-click, save it to your computer, and print it like a regular 8x10 photo.




I put mine in a white wooden frame from the dollar store, but it would look great in a black frame too. You could even paint a frame orange or red to add a nice fall feel to it. It's totally up to you!




What do you think of my free Fall print? I think it looks super cute and high-end in the wooden dollar store frame I found. No one would guess that it was free! 😀

First Day of School Photos - 2021

Today was our first day of school, which is always a bittersweet day for me. I'm so proud of the young men my boys are becoming, but they are growing up way too fast. Here's a peak at our morning!




We always start our day with pancakes in the shape of their grades. This year my boys are in grade 7, grade 9, and grade 11. Not sure how I have two kids in high school!




Then, I take a picture of each boy holding an 8x10 picture of them on the first day of school the previous year. We have been doing this since preschool, and it's one of my favourite traditions.

Here's my "baby"!



Here's my oldest!



And here's my middle son!



The morning of the first day of school is always chaotic, so I'm grateful every time I manage to get them to stand for a quick picture. :-)



I can't wait for my boys to get home after school. It's always fun to share a special treat and hear about their day. 

Happy first day of school!!!
