Wreath making can be tricky when it's hot enough to fry eggs outside.
Using hot glue is not an option until it's cold, since all my doors get full sun for at least half the day.
Melting glue on my door is no fun.
Toothpicks were the answer to securing the ribbon to the straw wreath.
They also helped secure the garland.
I also used bronze tacks to secure the garland and add a decorative element to the wreath.
Even the "No Sniveling" sign is hanging on toothpicks.
After Halloween, an easy unwrapping and I can use it for another 10 minute wreath.
I like that.
Although I'm thinking that the no sniveling can stay around.
I'm not a fan of snivelers.
I just changed it up a little with Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue and Antibes Green.
Fresh paint on the letters, a little dark wax, and it was ready to go.
This is the door to the porte cochere, and the door everyone uses because it's closest to the driveway.
I still have to do the front porch, but we are getting a cool front tomorrow.
I nice cool breeze and I am in gear and on the move.
Hopefully, it will feel like Fall for a few days.
Have a spook-tacular weekend...says my little friend.
Can you see her by the urn?
