naked door alert: which couture shall she wear?

October is half way over and my door is in the buff. I have yet to find or make a wreath for my front door. The one I use to use is sitting pretty on my mantel. This would normally be a fun adventure, but I am dreading it. I am not quite sure why...but here I am {small violin}..googling images of fall wreaths.

Here are my top picks:

#1 - Miss Homecoming Queen 2010..the cornhusk beauty
{less than $5, but my cat may have a field day with the leftovers}

#2 - twine + burlap + ruffle = ~heart~
{I need someone to show me how to make a darn heart w/html}

#3 - blooming rosewood wreath from Target....premade, but not on sale, and
should I be worried about mildew with this outside?

#3 - leaves amid natural twigs..and sheer feather*licious with chocolate satin

#4 - standard grapevine w/ and "etsy" flair for fall

#5 - simple but lush splendor of fall leaves with a ribbon

#6 - I just want to touch this wreath. Thoughts of dried hydrangea dance in my head with these coffee filter wreaths, and the black marker edging is divine
{less than $2, so if it is a disaster..it will be a cheap mistake} 

#7 - rustic sweetheart with a sparkle...oh my..this is why you have
been in my favorites folder for a year.
{imagine that 8 being a B}

I obviously am attracted to neutral colors...I am hopeless devoted to neutrals. OK...so help me. Which one could I make? Or try to make? Or even splurge on?



  1. So obviously sister's separated at birth. I have the coffee filter wreath in my inspiration folder right now but the show stealer for me is the Homecoming Queen - Corn Husk #1 <- Fabulous!!

    Have you seen this coffee filter lantern?

    Dreamy right?

    Scooting off to bed now since I am up WAAAY too late :)

  2. Depends....do you have the time to make the coffee filter one? It's amazing..and may be relaxing to do. The burlap/ "B" one would be a quick easy job, and the purchase of the feathery chocolate satin one would be a special treat. Let us know what you decide!

  3. I like #6 the coffee filter wreath. I haven't seen one that full before. It looks great!

    have a good one!

  4. They are all amazing but for some reason I am loving the last one. It's simple and beautiful!

  5. These are all pure delight e. At least you desire the beautiful and unique. I just bought a grapevine wreath and stuck fall colored fake flowers all over it and hung it outside. lol
    Now I'm rethinking it.
    Thanks for the inspiration! That one from Target is amazing! I love it.

  6. I love #1, but I tell you that I have been strolling past #3 in my Target for a month. My door is in the buff, too, but the just isn't in the budget. I want you to tell me how to do #1!!!

  7. I love 1 and 2 best. And the "etsy flair" one is fun, too, especially since I am a word/book addict.

  8. I vote for #7...adorable and looks super simple!

  9. Hello! I'm most attracted to #7...love it! Thanks so much for the nice comment on my blog today :)
