Mesh Wreath Update

You know, sometimes you can absolutely LOVE a project, but after staring at it for a while, you want to make some changes.

I have always loved our Clemson Mesh Wreath (Tutorial Here)

But after it hanging on our door for a while, I decided it needed to be a little fuller. 

A friend gave me a roll of purple burlap ribbon that she didn't know what to do with. TaaaDaaa!! I knew exactly what my wreath needed now.

The burlap added just enough volume to the wreath to make it appear much fuller, while still providing the pops of purple I love.

Add the burlap just as you would add the deco mesh. Just alternate your poofs, and tie them off with floral wire. Easy and fast!

I love a good update to an old favorite.

How about you??

The Abigail Tunic

One of my favorite patterns is the Abigail Tunic. It's an easy fitting top, with long sleeves and plenty of length.

Better yet, it's easy to SEW! 

Goldilocks needed a new fall addition to her Abigail collection. A pumpkin...and a monogram. Perfect.

She loves that it's long enough to wear with just leggings.

Add a few to your little one's fall wardrobe! Click HERE for the pattern.

Wallpaper Love with Graham & Brown

I recently received a fun package from Graham and Brown. It was a roll of absolutely beautiful wallpaper, that they wanted me to use for something in my home. 

I thought about wallpapering the back of my desk hutch, making a photo backdrop for the kids' Halloween pictures, and other things. But in the end, as I stared at the paper, it was just too pretty to do a "project" with and forget about. I wanted it to be front and center.

So I cut a section and framed it!! It is now artwork. And this paper truly is beautiful enough to be called ART.

 I used the pattern "Mirage Charcoal" which was a beautiful slate gray with almost spooky trees. Perfect for the month of October. I took the back out of my frame, and inserted the paper, just as you would a picture.

Once I hung it on my wall I could NOT believe how well the grays in the picture matched my paint color! This makes the picture even more beautiful, as it looks like the trees are floating in the frame.
(paint color is Coventry Gray by Benjamin Moore.)

The spookiness of the trees, with the distressed wood of my frame makes for a beautiful piece of art, perfect for the Halloween season. But I'm sure it will be up much longer.

Visit Graham and Brown to see all of the beautiful wallpapers they offer! The prints are bold, saturated with color, and sure to make any room look "WOW". 

Not up for doing a whole room? Try an accent wall, or go smaller...frame that beautiful paper.
