Lord, you are my God;
I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
you have done wonderful things,
things planned long ago.

Summer has come to an end, and Fall has officially arrived here in the beautiful state of Georgia. I was really looking forward to decorating my front entrance this year, because we recently finished building a patio.
For this year's fall wreath, I decided to make something simple; I have a lot going on around my door with a nice sized hay stack, pumpkins, and beautiful mum flowers. I didn't use the monogram letter or the chevron ribbon because the entrance was already so full and lush.
Here is how I made a fluffy, bubble burlap wreath:
Start by taking a handful of pipe cleaners and cut them in half with craft scissors.
Start with the main burlap ribbon. Scrunch one end of the ribbon, bring it up from underneath and around the clamp. Secure with a pipe cleaner.
Start weaving the burlap through each clamp and secure with a pipe cleaner.
Repeat the steps above until you get something like this.
For the bow, you'll need to cut 2 strips of burlap at 21 inches long.
I have no idea what happened to the colors in this picture....Sorry 'bout that.
Fold the two strips of burlap in half (separately, not together) and bind together with hot glue.
Pinch the middle and secure with pipe cleaner.
Ignore the green paint on my arm.
Cut one yard of burlap and scrunch in the middle.
Bring the 3 pieces of the ribbon together. Secure everything with a pipe cleaner, and add a small strip in the middle.
Slide a pipe cleaner through the back of the bow to easily attach it to the wreath.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a warm and cozy Fall season!
Have you seen last year's fall wreath?

I'm always very flattered when I get asked to review products, but this review is unlike any I've done because what I got sent to me was handmade by a sweet friend of mine, Megan. If you haven't visited her Etsy shop --Bourne Southern, you are missing out on some great handmade pieces of decor. Megan is a loving wife, sweet momma of 2 adorable little boys. She works hard to cater to their needs and runs an awesome Etsy shop. I promised her I would give you a true and honest opinion on all the things she sent me so, here it is.
I LOVE EVERYTHING! Honestly!
She made me a personalized family sign
Here is some info about each piece and what Bourne Southern can do for you!
The personalized family name signs are completely customizable, you can choose from different background colors, font colors, and fun fonts that can be found in the shop.
Extra large scrabble tiles are my absolute favorite! I love them because they are rustic and modern at the same time, no matter what style you like they will look perfect in your home. For $20 you can finish up a wall gallery, add a monogram initial to a bedroom, or add it to that corner in your kitchen that needs a little personalization --like I did!
Last but not least, are Bourne Southerns' famous large scrabble tiles. These wooden tiles are so fun! And what's even more fun is the price. They are only $5 each! Perfectly cut, stained, and hand painted by Megan herself. You can spell any word or phase. They make such great wall decor, baby or wedding shower gifts, and photo prop!
I was also informed that Bourne Southern will start carrying Scrabble Racks, which will allow you to display smaller letters on a mantle or table rather than hang on a wall!
Doesn't all that sound so fun!? Here is the best part about this review.
