Fallishness 2011: Pt. 4 The Front Door

PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!
You can now find me at

Dang, I sure got my autumn decorating mojo on.
Two posts in one day!
Today I did some tweaking, and did up a door thang.  
Don't quite know what to call it.

I usually have a metal shabby basket full of fake folliage of some sort, 
so I thought of doing a wreath instead.
But then whilst wandering thru the piles of junk interesting pieces I've accumulated in my garage,
I found the other half of this:

Remember what I did with the first half?

So I took the other half and sprayed it white, sanded a bit, and glazed with a bit of walnut stain. 
Then I gathered the usual suspects....

I used a Q-tip to stain the wooden letters, then glue-gunned them on. 
Nothing like a glue gun to make ya feel like you've been truly crafty.  

Then did the "drape the silk and plastic branches over the top rung" game and frouffed.

Metal letter came from Restoration Hardware Christmas clearance a couple years ago.
Used to have a pale aqua cast, but now it's just kinda goldish-silver.  
Or silverish-gold.

And the obligatory artsy-sepia:

You got more than mojo going on there! You are a crafting maniac aren't ya? I like things that hang on the door and aren't wreaths. Wreaths are just so predictable. Great job!
