summer burlap wreath revisited

It's time to change up the decor again. Time for pumpkins & pumpkin spice candles (mmm!!), crunchy leaves, gourds, and...fall wreaths. But before I take my summer wreath down, I thought I'd show you how it has 'aged' over the past 7 months. 

So here's what it looked like back in February...
And check out how it looks now after several months on my front door... 
See how the burlap has changed color? And how it has curled up a little?? Not sure what made it change color but I LOVE it :) I love how it still looks pretty but doesn't look so 'brand new' anymore.

And now Mr. Summer Burlap Wreath, it's time for you to retire until next year...

By the way, I've been working on some fun Fall/Halloween goodies for my etsy shop. Here's one of the wreaths I've finished up and is in the shop right now:
Edited to add - this wreath has already sold out 
but I'll have more in the shop soon!!
Just a whimsical, fun little Halloween wreath :) I'm also working on some wooden signs and hopefully we'll get the rest of them cut this weekend. Or, I should say, my husband will get them cut this weekend so I can get them painted!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

I love both wreaths Michelle, since your fall one already sold, I may try my hand at making one for my doors.
