Making Wreaths

Heather had such a good idea to make our own Holiday wreaths. It was so fun! We went to Michael's while Lacy was at pre-school today and got all our supplies. I decided I wanted to make one for the cute wreath stand my Mother in Law got me and one for the front door.
For the one I put on the stand, which is on my kitchen table, we got plain stick wreaths and decorated them with berry garland, yummy smelling pine cones, little pumpkins, leaves, etc. I LOVE the way they turned out.
I took all the extra yummy smelling pine cones, and some other pumpkins I got and put them in this awesome parfait dish I got. I love the way it looks and props to me for thinking outside the box and using the parfait dish- now hopefully I wont suddenly have the urge to make a parfait for a few months!

The one I put out on the front door I copied from Andrea . The only difference was that when I was done I covered mine in modge-podge. I'm sure it doesn't look as good but I am hanging mine on my front door and I wanted it to withstand the heat, cold, rain, etc. I just thought it made it a little more weather-proof. Thanks Andrea for the cute idea, I told you I would do it... and blog it :) I also love the way this one turned out. Plus I put these two cute Halloween bells in the middle of them for the Halloween season.

Wow those look so good, the way you displayed then and the photo editing is beautiful!
I think I'm gonna try the fabric one. What did you do to make it more weather proof?
