{ A Pinecone Wreath & Pumpkins! }

A little project I did late last night. This is what 2 1/2 hrs, 1 Styrofoam wreath, 358 Pine Cones & 79 Mini Glue sticks looks like. Yes I counted it all as I went, I'm OCD like that. I so love it thanks V & Co. for the tutorial :) And thank you Calie for helping me scrounge for the Pine Cones. Only a true friend would do that with ya! I'm dying to hang it from some fabric like V & Co but I have to figure out where to hang it first. So for now this is her temporary home. 
  I also couldn't resist taking out my fabric pumpkins again this year. I love these so much and they are so easy to make. The tutorial I used to make them is from HOLLY BRIMHALL.

This is another wreath I worked on last night, but it's still in the production phase. I plan to have it finished soon. This one is thanks to Eddie Ross.
Well, off I go to replenish my glue stick supply. :)

  7. I'll have to check out Covet. I LOVE Lovely - I'm almost out, so I've been wearing Romance by Ralph Lauren lately and saving Lovely for special occasions. I have to ask - how do you get that list that's on the left side of your blog under "Want More? Click a Label". Can't figure it out...

  9. 358? Holy crap! I love it though and only 2 1/2 hours, wow. It took me almost that to fill 23 plastic gloves with candy corn nails and popcorn for Halloween.

  12. Thanks for your help! I did it! Now, I'm just trying to figure out how to change the font on the blog titles and stuff like that. I want to make my page more personalized.
    I do think it's ironic how we know lots of the same people, but I don't think we've ever met. :) Too funny. I'm glad we're blog friends!

  18. I don't know whether I am more jealous of that GORGEOUS, and I mean, GORGEOUS pine cone wreath or that you had 358 pine cones at your disposal! All of your projects are fabulous, but this one, girl, you've taken the fabulous to new levels!!! And I am so heading over to Eddie's place to see what he's cooking up over there. ;D

  20. Hi Rachel,

    Fabulous wreaths. These projects do take a lot of glue don't they.

    Happy birthday to your darling daughter too. They grow up fast don't they.

    Thanks for your kind words on my photos. Please e-mail me and I'll be glad to help w/anything that I know---which prob. isn't much. For editing I just play around until something looks right.

    I think your photos are awesome. You are very creative-that makes it fun. I esp. love that you are always able to take such well-lit indoor photos. Do you use lights or do you just know how to adjust your settings properly. My indoor photos are terrible.

  21. LOVE the pine cone wreath. We have a billion here, I could probably talk my mom or sister into collecting them with me.
    The Christmas ball one has been on my to do list for a week. Did you use plastic ones? I was planning on heading over to the Dollar Tree and getting them there. Is it pretty easy to put together?
    Thank you for sending the font. LOVE it.

  22. This is awesome! I had to laugh, we live in S. Calif. near the mountains and found some hugomongous pinecones...and I asked hubby if they would cause a flat tire...they were huge! Right then he drove over one and our tire popped and went flat right then and there! hahahaha.....love your wreath.

  27. Love your pinecone wreath! I saw the same tutorial and knew I had to make one. We headed up the mountain, and to my disbelief, we could not find a single pinecone. Not one! Not on the ground, not on a tree. It was the strangest thing I've ever seen. I guess I'll have to try again next year.

  28. The pinecone wreath looks great!

    I think I might do the ornament one.

  29. Love the wreaths, all of them...you even got me to get out today and go buy some ornaments so I can make me a Christmas one like you shared of the Eddie Ross one...I hope I can have it finished this weekend...then maybe I will have something interesting to blog about...

  30. I hope you are feeling better! Yes, little Man has a cough (but Dr.'s say he is ok) but he coughs so much he vomits, poor child.
    On another note, after seeing these I think I may have to invest on a glue gun, you think?

  31. Rachel that wreath turned out fabulous! I am so glad we got to share that moment of pinecone bliss! Memories that last a lifetime baby! Good times!
