Welcome Fall

Fall is by far my favourite season...the crisp air, the colours, the return of routine...and of course, Halloween! I am so excited to be joining the Fall Festival over at This Blessed excited to share and celebrate all that is fall!
Let's begin with the front door...shall we?
The door that at times seems to be 'revolving'; the door that welcomes our visitors and welcomes us home at the end of a busy day.

To give a little context to this project, you must know that last week I was drawn to anything 'rosette'...rosette headbands; rosette hairpins; rosettes on lamps, on lapels, on shoes...rosettes on bedding. Then I got to thinking (I know, a dangerous thing:)...what says cozy fall days like handmade rosettes in rustic colours on a weathered wreath?
I dare say...nothing:)

After many hours (and my husband can vouch for that!) in blogland searching out tutorials...I stumbled upon Coco Loves Vintage...who lead me to the best darn tutorials a rosette-lovin' gal could ask for.
Check them out at Charm Bracelet Diva.

A visit to Goodwill was in order! I picked up these fabrics for a whopping $2 and set to work...
I heated up the ol' hot glue gun, scrounged up some felt remnants (for the backing) and set to work. A few minutes later...

...a little fall-inspired beauty to welcome us home at the end of our day!

Things in our home are never really complete...I'm always changing something! This wreath will be no different...I already feel the need to craft some rosettes in different hues to make them POP!
That sounds like a project for a cool fall afternoon!
