Are You Ready For Some Football??

Ummm…..the answer is a resounding YES in this household!  We are so stoked for football season.  We have season tickets again for our beloved Gators!  Go Gators!!!!

So, to get in the football spirit, I thought I would add a few things to our front porch to be sure and let allllll the neighbors know that we love our Gators!

I was inspired by this wreath that Stacy at She’s Kinda Crafty made.  She is awesome! {I mean, she has to be right?  She’s a fellow Gator!}

Isn’t it GORGEOUS!  I fell in love and knew I had to make one!

So off to Hobby Lobby I went with my coupon in hand.  Lucky for me the ribbon was 50% off so I scored a ton for quite a steal!

I won’t give a tutorial because as I found, there’s about a million of them out there for ribbon wreaths (here’s a good one from Jen @ Tatertots & Jello). 

So with Stacy’s wreath in mind, I got to work!  A couple hours and a burnt thumb later, here’s my finished product:

Eeepp!  I love it.  All that orange & blue just makes me so giddy.  About the only thing I did differently from Stacy was use wooden letters instead of paper.  I just used some spray adhesive and blue glitter on them.  I secured them to the wreath with my glue gun.  Easy peasy!

So, are you big football fanatics in your house?  Is your husband in 20,000 different fantasy football leagues like mine?  Spill it!

Have a great weekend!

  3. Thanks for sharing that darling wreath! I'm just gonna need to change the "U" and "F" to an "A" and "U" for an Auburn wreath...we have the same great colors. I went to Auburn's first game today and I have never seen so many variations on orange and blue sundresses in my life...you probably did too at Florida's game.
