Fall Wreaths

As the weather starts to cool, we often make changes to the outside of our homes to reflect the new temperatures. Cooler weather means changing leaves and beautiful fall colors!

Here are three of our most popular wreaths (with tutorials!!) to help you spice up your front porch for fall!

I hate that these wreaths only get love for part of the year because they're soooo pretty! But it's always nice to give your front door a facelift from month to month.

Mini-Cornhole Boards

For Goldilocks' 4th birthday, we wanted her to have something unique, something she could use. We made her some mini-cornhole boards!

I didn't take pictures for a tutorial, but since these are "mini" I'll give you some measurements!

Length: 24"
Width: 18"
Hole Diameter: 6"

There are LOTS of good YouTube videos for how to assemble a cornhole board if you need it. But it's pretty straightforward. Make a platform, add some legs to elevate one end, and drill a hole.

I made the actual corn bags a little smaller and lighter than usual. These finish at 4 1/2" square and are made of duck cloth and canvas.


I used my Silhouette to cut the vinyl decals for their names and the palmetto trees. A few coats of polyurethane should keep them slick and looking nice for a while. 


We had fun with these at her party and many evenings since then. A good, well-made set will last a long time and I know we'll get years of enjoyment out of these.
