Feeling Crafty But Needing Direction

Today I’ve decided to do something different and out of the ordinary.  I’ve been feeling crafty for the last week. With the weather starting to cool down a little, it seems like fall is in the air.  And with the arrival of fall comes the need to change up my decor.  I keep seeing all these pumpkins and fall decorations in stores and I started thinking about creating a cute little fall vignette on my porch.  Then I started thinking about my porch and I realized it’s in serious need of a makeover.

Since I don’t have a whole lot of extra money, I thought I’d see what I could do to create a cheap porch makeover.

I found some cushions at Walmart that were marked down to $4 each and I’m going to move some different furniture on to my front porch. (I haven’t actually done this because I have a horrible cold and I feel like death warmed over, but once I’m feeling more human, I’ll tackle this.)  I’ve also decided that my front door could use a little freshening and so I decided I should whip up a wreath.

I didn’t want to spend a fortune, so I grabbed a Hobby Lobby coupon and headed out to Hobby Lobby.  I was pretty indecisive about what kind of wreath I wanted to make but I knew that this needed to be an inexpensive project.  I used my coupon to buy a yard of burlap and grabbed some muslin from the remnants bin.  I spent a whopping $3.50.

So now I have a whole lot of burlap and muslin and I can’t decide what I want to make!  I came across so many absolutely fabulous wreaths on Pinterest! And since I’m under the weather and feeling like I’m walking around in a fog, I’ve decided to do something a little different.  I’m going to let you guys decide what I should make! Let’s see how crafty I really am!

Here are the choices: {Warning: I can’t promise how great my creation will turn out, but I promise to show you pictures.}

Option 1

Option 2

Option 3

Option 4

So there you have it…Four different wreaths to choose from.

Leave me a comment with which option you like the best and I’ll choose to make the wreath which gets the most votes!
