Happy Autumn, lovely friends!
hot tea and coffee,
knee high boots,
All the things Autumn brings puts a smile on my face and a skip in my step.
Welcome, sweet Fall!
What do you love about this time of the year?
I am beginning to bring Fall-ish items out into my home
and of course I have to make a few things as well :)
I made a delightful little flower bouquet that will go in my living room by some old hymnals.
The flowers are made out of felt and are so easy to make!
What you need:
hot glue gun and glue
For one flower you will need two circles (about 3-inches in size) of felt.
Place the two circles of felt together;
thread the needle with the embroidery floss
and sew a running stitch around the center.
Gently pull until tight then wrap the thread around the bottom two times; knot.
Poke a hole with the wire through the bottom of the flower; pull wire out.
Cut out a smaller circle of green felt (or whatever color you want)
and poke the wire through the green circle, apply hot glue to it,
and then poke into the flower bottom where you already made a hole.
You can decorate your vase or leave it as is.
I added some rose lace with hot glue and a mini clothespin
that held a Scripture verse that my sweet friend Abby sent to me a while ago.
And that's it, dear friends.
The days may not be so bright and balmy—
yet the quiet and melancholy that linger around them is fraught with glory.
Over everything connected with autumn there lingers some golden spell—
some unseen influence that penetrates the soul with its mysterious power.
Enjoy the first day of Autumn!
Hugs and blessings to you.
