Wreath Roundup

It's just about time to put out a wreath!  I love wreaths, and I think they are perfectly acceptable year-round, but now is the time to pull out all the stops with fantastic fall & holiday wreaths.  I always put a wreath up in October, change it out for Christmas, and take it down around New Years.  I even put a wreath on our apartment door in Dallas, only to have it stolen.  Freaking Dallas!  Anyway...You only need to do a quick search on blogs or Pinterest to find that there are literally a zillion wreath options out there - almost all are DIY.  I thought I'd do a little web surfing for you, and I found my favorite fall options for your viewing and crafting pleasure.  I divided them into categories so you can pick one to suit your fancy, and if you want to know how to make it yourself, there are links below each picture to take you there!

I have to say... Brent knows me pretty well.  Last night I asked him to look at all the wreaths and tell me which one he thought was my favorite.  He hardly hesitated at all, and he picked my #2 fave.  Not bad!  So how well do you know me, blogger friend?  If you're the first person to correctly guess my first OR second fave in the comment section, I'll email you a $5 Starbucks e-gift card to enjoy a pumpkin spice latte on me.

I think Yesterday's News or Birds of a Feather. Mostly because of the reading idea of the news. And because I adore "birds of a feather." I'm Pinning this whole post!
