I cannot believe that September is approaching already. It feels way to early to decorate for fall, but I am excited to break out my fall signs and neutral colored decorative pumpkins. I’m not usually one for Halloween decorations or bright orange pumpkins, but this year I wanted to embrace fall with a colorful wreath.
This diy fall wreath tutorial takes a little bit of time, but the end product is well worth it. I purchased all of the decorative elements from the dollar store, but you might want to browse the craft store or Amazon for some fall decor deals. The dollar store is great, but sometimes the packaging sizes are very small. If you end up buying four or five of something, you’re better off finding a larger package at the craft store.
When I first started sewing, my mother gave me her old Wizard Citation Sewing Machine. I didn’t know much about it, but a quick Google search gave me a few ideas about the origin. This 3K-8834 model originally comes in a cabinet with a knee pedal. Evidently, Brother manufactured this model but the early Citations were produced in Japan in the 1960’s.
The first few times I used it, I had a hard time figuring out how to thread the needle. The tension is a little different than new models and I couldn’t find much online about older Wizard models. I wanted to share a quick tutorial on how to do this for anyone who might pick one up.

For the longest time, I have had these large glass vases from the Dollar Tree in my craft storage bench. While I love the size and the weight of the vases for flowers, they definitely needed some kind of design upgrade before they can be displayed.
It’s nearly summer and I am definitely still loving tropical inspired home decor. Just the right touch can give your home a subtle summer upgrade without screaming, “someone must have had a luau party.”
