Happy Monday, friends!
This past weekend there was a BIG college football game that my family and I had to watch, and when things started going downhill for my Alma mater, it was time to bust out a craft project I could work on while the game was on. That way I was still watching and listening, but could be a little bit distracted at the same time 😉
Here’s what I came up with….
Yes, you read that right. This beauty not only looks amazing and colorful, but smells just like fall!
The crazy thing about it is that I only spent $4 on this wreath. True story. I bought a plain grapevine wreath at Michael’s on sale for $4, and then glued down nature materials that I already had on hand, and this wreath was born!
And, it smells like CINNAMON!
Cinnamon is one of my top favorite scents in this world (I like to shop at Albertsons in the fall just so I can smell those cinnamon brooms they always have out… heavenly!), so I wanted to figure out a way to get this wreath to smell like cinnamon. I’ll show you how I made this beautiful wreath, and then how I was able to give it a warm, inviting cinnamon scent.
I have tons of natural, colorful, and chunky potpourri that I’ve collected over the years from Pottery Barn. Like, TONS. I took a second look at it the other day and the thought struck me to turn some of my extra potpourri into a wreath!
You might not have extra bags of potpourri around the house, but you can still make a beautiful wreath following these directions. You can use this as an excuse to go on a nice nature walk and pick up things like leaves, pods, bark, nuts, acorns, pine cones, berries, etc., or you could even buy artificial versions of these as well.
