About Me

Hello Friends!


I want to start by saying thank you so much for taking the time to swing by!  I am Ashley from Porch Addict and I can’t wait for you to follow along!  


A little bit about myself, I have degrees in both Clinical Massage Therapy and Chiropractic and I spend most of my days treating patients naturally.  I've always had a lifelong love affair with home decor!  Growing up, my mom was a chronic re-arranger and I truly believe she coined the term "Shop Your Home" over 40 years ago!  I guess you could say I get my home decor addiction from her!  My fiancé and I reside in the Chicago suburbs with our Mini Goldendoodle Zoe and his 3 beautiful children when they aren’t with their mama. 


I started my blog to share my love of decorating, DIY projects and how I mix highs with lows in my everyday style.  You can usually find me thrifting, junking, fixing or painting our vintage victorian!  I instantly became a “Porch Addict” after seeing not one but two porches with a bonus storybook swing!  Thanks for joining me here at “Porch Addict!”  I’m glad you decided to swing by!

Make your own acorn wreath for fall!

I made my own DIY fall wreath this year using natural-looking materials to create it. I decided on an acorn wreath since we have an oak tree! I collected them over several days only picking up ones that weren't rotten. I gathered at least 100! I set out to Hobby Lobby to get a 15' styrofoam wreath form, spanish moss and glue sticks for my hot glue gun. Start by washing the acorns in a strainer with just water and then allow them to dry for at least an hour. Heat your oven to 175-200 degrees for 1.5-2 hours and let them bake. You can crack your oven door so that the acorns don't burn and throw away any that do.



Items you'll need

  • Acorns

  • Styrofoam wreath form (any size you like)

  • Spanish moss

  • Hot glue gun and 10-15 glue sticks


  • Doing small sections at a time, put hot glue on the form attaching the spanish moss by completely covering the section so that you don't see the for.


  • Completely cover the front of the wreath, inside and out with spanish moss. Cut off small clumps of it because it does stick together.

  • Attach your acorns in various patterns all over the wreath. I used full acorns, just the caps and some without the caps. This gave it a more cohesive look. I went through so many hot glue sticks for just the moss, probably at least 7! Plan to buy a lot of glue sticks because I ran out and didn't attach all of my acorns so I'll add more acorns later.

  • Trim off the extra moss that looks straggly that hangs over the sides. It's already dry after this step so you can hang it right away! Have a great Tuesday!
