My New “DIY” Partner in Crime

December 1st, 2010

So my boy van is not even 2 weeks old yet, but he is already helping momma with some DIY projects.

{Here’s a photo of my little helper before we headed out to pick up our supplies.}

During one of van’s late night feedings, I was surfing the w{orld} w{ide} w{eb} and this awesome gold wreath over at Urban Grace Interiors caught my eye.  {mimicking is the sincerest form of flattery right?!}

So yesterday’s project was to make a new Christmas wreath for the front door and to paint my pumpkins green!

Off to Michael’s we went in search of a similar wreath and some gold spray paint.  Here’s what I found…

And then we, well my mums actually, spray painted it gold..

And viola… An awesome new gold wreath for our front door!

And don’t forget about my pumpkin Xmas Tree.  Remember it looked like this for Halloween and Thanksgiving.

And then with the help of a little green spray paint…

A very Merry Xmas Tree complete with a star on top!

Still need to do a few finishing touches on both, then I will show the whole shebang.

In the meantime I will leave you with another photo of my boy.  I figured you wouldn’t mind…

    Totty, your little one is absolutely adorable. I’d love to come visit sometime. Just let me know when. The wreath is gorgeous and the pumpkin tree so clever, but the best part of this post is definitely that little fella – he’s beautiful!!!

    I love it! I will be heading to Michael’s (or more likely, Ben Franklin) next week for the wreath. Just wish I had flat pumpkins. Darn!!! Can you still buy pumpkins?

    Oh and Van is so cute! I love the hair…very fashionable (gel or mousse?)

    Miss my little man. Love the last pic of him. Had he just had a bath, his hair was looking quite spikey!!!

    I’m impressed you are getting this done with new baby boy in tow!

    He’s so cute Totty! And, I’m impressed that you are actually doing stuff like that! I was a hermit for like 6 weeks after having Bobby.

    I love the wreath idea! I will have to do this myself soon!
