Fall Door Decor and things that make my hips grow in the night.

So I took the weekend off, but I am back.  No, I didn't do anything particularly exciting.  I didn't take off because I won the lottery and took a fabulous vacay to the West Coast, no I took off because blogging would have cut into my laying around time.  Have you ever heard of that?  Well, it is exactly what it sounds like.  You wake up, pick a spot (either the couch or the recliner), and you lay there.  I am only slightly exaggerating.  

I think that I redeemed myself today though.  I went to my friend Steph's house where the two of use rearranged her furniture.  We could have the stars of one of those home design shows (the kind I watch during my laying around time).  The two of use transformed 3 spaces without spending a cent and only picking from the things she already had.  Then I got inspired to make something.  I started putting fall decor out the other day (what little I have) and my door was feeling left out, it's big glass pane was looking kind of naked so I made it a dress.  Okay, a wreath.  
Here is how I did it: 
Gathered my supplies (Leaves, grapevine wreath, and my glue gun)

I started by taking all the leaves off the little stems they come on so I had a nice pile of leaves to choose from.

Then, one by one, I started to glue them to the wreath.  I just made sure that I mixed the colors together.

This is what it looked like as I was gluing the leaves on.

Finished gluing, so I decided to add some ribbon and bow.  It needed the flare!

After I attached the ribbon and the bow, I dressed my door.  I am happy with the way it turned out, and for a total cost of $11 my wallet is happy as well.  It is night time, so the picture isn't so great, but I have become somewhat of a night owl and tend to complete projects at night.

And as for the things that make my hips grow in the night,
Candy Corn.
My goal is to make this glass pumpkin of candy corn last until my husband comes home.  Anyone want to put bets on how long it lasts?
Happy Fall Y'all!

candy corn is sooo good! have you ever added peanuts to it? It makes it taste like Payday candy bars. (for real) There's a tie between the candy corn and peanuts mix and candy apples for my favorite fall fattening treat :)
