Different Door Hanging

I decided the porch was on fake fall foliage overload with the addition of the pumpkin topiary earlier this week. I still wanted something for the door because it just seemed naked without a little something. I went shopping (you all know how much I hate shopping, Hobby Lobby especially *hee*) for a welcome sign and couldn't find one I liked.


I did however find a metal initial that I thought would be perfect with some ribbon, raffia, beaded twigs and a little nest. It turned out really sweet! I like that it's something maybe a little unexpected. You may even have an initial laying around your house just waiting to be re purposed as a door hanging.

Great idea! My "welcome" sign for the door? It says "the witch is in (or out...you flip the sign). lmao Your idea is WAY classier. :o)

That's a fun idea. I've seen those letters at HobLob and didn't know what to do with them. That looks awesome.

That is seriously clever--what a great way to take on the season but not look like everyone else on the block! Thanks for the inspiration :)

Blessings,

Aimee, What a great idea! I've seen those monogram letters at HL and would have never thought to use them this way! Love your pumpkin topiary and fall vignettes on the beautiful chest inside! You have a great eye!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit! Do hope that you will come again! ~Rhonda :)

Love all of your fall touches! Your blog is wonderful, by the way. And your ugly black buffet? Not the slightest bit ugly! Jen

I love your idea! I have seen these letters, but to put them on a front door never sprang to mind. You are so very clever. The monogram thing is so huge right now, I may have to try my hand at this one! Smiles, Paula

I absolutely LOVE the door hanging! Such a great idea - I might have to copy it! If I do, I will link to your blog if that's okay! Great job!

Ok, I am so jealous! We don't have Hobby Lobby in CA. :(

Linked her from the Nesting Place and love your style! You are very talented.
