Creating Fall at the Beach

Monday, August 29, 2016

I recently found myself far out of my comfort zone...our family just relocated from TN to TX a week ago - a BIG move! We have been given the use of a fabulous beach house while we house hunt. So it kinda feels like summer because it's still really hot here on the Texas Gulf Coast...and the beach is less than a block away...and it's sunny...and hot! And while I'm LOVING it, I was craving a little FALL, so I figured out a way to bring some Fall to the beach! This is a great way to use found objects whether you live at the beach or not!

A recent move to a new state means I'm scrambling to find crafting projects to share with you while I'm technically homeless and all my stuff is in storage! Thankfully a few fellow blogger friends have stepped in to help me out! Today Aimee from The Crazy Craft Lady has a fast and wallet-friendly dollar store fall wreath tutorial to share.
