In the spirit of DIY and the holidays, I was inspired to experiment and create my own front door wreath(s) for the first year ever. What better way to spend an early Saturday morning :) Cup of coffee brewed (faux-mocha with Hershey’s and creamer) I decided to try out the first of the chosen designs. The first wreath that I decided to create was something I saw featured in Better Homes & Gardens, although mine, admittedly, doesn’t feature real pine branches (but you can bet that if I had a pine in my yard, it would have), so consequently, doesn’t look quite as glam as I thought it might. Glam aside, I do think it nicely complements the white lights in the windows.
Channeling Tim Gunn and trying to make it work with the materials I had, I wrapped some faux-pine branch garland around a simple, undecorated wreath that I found. The snowballs you see hung in the middle of the wreath are simply foam balls with fresh white yarn that I tied to the branches. A simple ribbon wraps around the wreath and over the door.
And, as I said, I’m planning on making several wreaths (at least just a couple more), so I’ll be disassembling this and reusing the materials.
Sidenote: my facebook page is finally up and running and I’m hopeful that over time, people will be open to treating it as a forum to share photos of their own projects! I’ll also be diligently posting my own photos and updates to that site (things that don’t necessarily fit into a whole unique post here). Stay tuned, people! Thanks for following me!
