Last year about this time I put together this little vine wreath for the front door. My plan was for it to last through the summer and then to reuse the wreath as a base for a fall themed wreath.
But, when fall came, it was still growing and looking beautiful! So, just before the first frost, I brought it inside with the faint hope I could winter it over.
And here it is - back on my front door for another summer! Those two little canisters I used to hold water really worked great!

This little tutorial is for Meg! She wrote me asking how to make the hanging system for the little Mod Podge lanterns.
Thank you for asking, Meg. I never thought about that part! I was way too excited playing with my Mod Podge!
So... here is a simple way to make a hanger for your lanterns!
Tools are simple!
1. I like to use 16 gage wire because it is still fairly easy to bend but it holds it's shape well.

Super simple way to recycle those ubiquitous aluminum pop cans! Turn them into a mobile of fluttering butterflies!
Making the mobile is fairly easy and quick, but figuring out how to get the butterflies to remain horizontal while suspended from the support string was a big pain. The reason I wanted the butterflies to remain horizontal while suspended is that I wanted them to gently flutter or tip from side to side in the breeze.

I am loving the pastel colors of these spring time lanterns - a little reuse project I have been playing around with lately!

I love wheat! I love oats! and I LOVE fall leaves! Using all three, I just finished this fall wreath for my front door. I don't pretend to be a wreath artist! But I am happy with the way this turned out.
What I really love about it is that since I sealed all the dried leaves in Outdoor Mod Podge, they will not wither away in a week or so - which is exactly what would happen if I used "fresh" fall leaves. I just am not willing to put a lot of work into projects that have very short life spans!!
The wreath is very simple to make - here's how.
