Super (Cheap) Apple Wreath!

Fall is definitely in the air! I broke out my cowboy (girl) boots yesterday with jeans and a sweater. So much fun with the cool weather, it's like a whole new wardrobe!

Here's a little project that inspired me to get all my fall decorations out. I spotted this wreath a few weeks ago at Goodwill. I think it was $1.50.

Pretty.

Then I was at TJ Maxx, and these apples were in the clearance section. Love that yellow sticker!

So I put the two together with the aid of my hot glue gun (not even one glue burn, thank you very much!).
Not bad for a total of $4.50, huh?

Stay tuned next week for more fall decorations! I am so excited to bust out all my pumpkins and gourds and other autumn goodies. Have a great weekend!

Carrie..
very nice indeed!
I think I would've added either some leaves or a bow..but it would look great with evergreens and a nice plaid bow around Christmas!
yesterday was definitely fallish with all the wind and leaves blowing!
thanks for sharing

You sure know how to knock out some pretty awesome wreaths. I love this one - and you can't beat the price.

Great wreath with an even better price tag!
I love apples ~

You are so smart for remaking this wreath~
Did you price wreath bases lately?
WOAH they are expensive!

I often buy a wreath at a thrift store only to do the same thing you did!
I also add and subtract stuff from my current wreaths to change them up a bit too!

How fun!

Very cute Carrie!

Oh, and you can wear cowboy boots year round. I do! They are super cute with sundresses or denim skirts and a tank top. :D

I love your apple wreath. I have been wanting to try to rehab a wreath myself. You have definitely inspired me to go ahead and give it a try!

Melanie said...

Too cute! At one time, I had my entire kitchen/dining area in apples. Love it!

Jen said...

Love the apple wreath! I love apples in general and the fact that you got the whole thing done cheaply! Kudos to you!

WOW! You have been busy lately. The wreath is great, the gel stain is super, but that bathroom makeover is fantastic! Way to go! It looks so timeless and classic. I love everything about it.

You are so creative! I don't have any time to look for those kinds of deals, much less complete the projects...and I don't think I have the creative skill either! I will just admire your talent from afar! :)

Very nice makeover. But what I am most impressed with is that you avoiding getting a glue gun burn...I can't do that if my life depends on it...I have two blistered fingers as I type. ha ha!
