Auntie Bridgett loves decorating for any reason, and Grandpa Nelson has good ideas. This weekend, these two things combined for a fun crafty project.
Grandpa Nelson suggested a wreath for the front door that would celebrate Fall. Not Halloween, just Fall. There has been such a dramatic change here in Portland as Summer ended, it seemed appropriate.
Auntie Bridgett and I took a pair of clippers and a bag to the Blair Community Garden, where a rogue rosemary bush has overgrown its parkway bed and is crowding a parking space.
The bush had really long, straight branches, and we were done within a few minutes!
Back home, we found an empty frame from a past year’s wreath and filled it up. The rosemary branches bent easily around the circle.
Clever Bridgett added some ribbon and silk leaves, and voila! A decoration that celebrates Fall AND smells fantastic. Come October, we may just stick a few skulls and bats on this bad boy!
PS. The rest of house is looking cute, too.
