Dollar Store Fall Wreath Collection

It's Fall NOW so time to break out the Fall and Halloween decor! I recently taught a Dollar Store Fall Wreath class at our church and thought I would share the results with you!


To begin, here is the original post from last year, Dollar Store Craft Blog Hop Fall Wreath.  It includes materials needed and tutorial to make your own wreath!

 

My friend (who asked me to teach the class--some friend lol) purchased most of the items from Dollar Tree.  We had to drive 2.25 hours to a Dollar Tree, because when you live in a small town, that's what you do.  If you click on my link above, you can get a list of items that I used to make the wreath.

Here are some photos of the wreaths that were made in class:


A touch of teal!


This is one happy scarecrow (probably because he isn't in a corn field).


"Everybody needs somebody sometime"...if you are as old as I am, you may remember that song from when you were a kid.


Floral Fall!


My friend Fleur made this one to send to her daughter who is off at college.


I hope you enjoyed our little tour of Dollar Store Fall Wreaths and that you will try making your own!

Thanks for stopping by!

Funtastic Friday and Chocolate Pumpkin Feature

Funtastic-Friday-Poster 600

FUNTASTIC FRIDAY 196 LINK PARTY

Here's another great Funtastic Friday with awesome Features!  It is beginning to look like Fall in your area?  The temps here in Nevada have gone from the 90s to the 70s during the day, high 30s at night.  Cooler temps are great but I am not a freezing cold type person, either.  Staci and her family had to evacuate their North Carolina home and are staying with family further East.   Prayers and good thoughts for all in the path of Florence!

Salt curing requires 2 salt blocks because you position the food item to be cured sandwiched between them. The weight of the top block applies pressure, which helps force the excess water content out while infusing the food with salt.
