I chose the yellow to pop off the black door (and we are partial to a black/gold college football team:), and jewel tones to add some depth and color. I cut little leaf shapes out of felt (free hand), placed them where I wanted them, and then hot glued them in place to the wreath.
Total cost for the wreath came in right at $10, after purchasing the straw wreath, the yarn, and the felt pieces (and using a Hobby Lobby coupon).
I like that it feels a little like late summer and early fall all rolled into one. The pillows on my rockers are also jewel tones and it ties in well. I have yet to purchase any fall flowers, so once that is done, I will show you the full porch!
Have you started decorating for fall? Record breaking low temps for us in KC this weekend! If you need me, I can be found on the soccer fields this weekend…2 kids & 5 games!! Have a great weekend! xoxo
