Fabric Pumpkin & Burlap Wreath

I’m finding it hard to believe that it’s October already, but my calendar is pretty hard evidence that that’s the case. October might be the best month of the year. The weather is cooling off, college football is in full swing, the leaves are about to change, and the shelves are overflowing with pumpkin flavored treats. Does it get any better (well, besides Christmas of course)?

With Fall comes the need for a new wreath to adorn our door. For the past two years our door has sported a lovely orange and blue Auburn yarn wreath, but I’m not sure this is going to be “our year.” I’m not a fair weather fan, promise. I still bleed orange and blue, but I’ve decided this is the year to take my fall wreath in a different direction.

This wreath began with my new secret wreath making weapon…a pool noodle.
Have you caught the noodling bug??

I wrapped my wreath form in alternating cream fabric and burlap. I really like the combination of the two textures and the neutral tones. I simply cut strips & used hot glue to adhere the ends of the fabric.

Finally, I added these cute fabric pumpkins. They were quick and easy to pull together. The orange pumpkins really pop against the neutral tones of the wreath. (And maybe this orange can count as half of an Auburn wreath!). I’ll share the how-to later this week :o)

So I guess 2012 can go ahead and bring on October! My door and I are ready.

Happy Fall!

Linking to a few fabulous parties!
