Wreath Face Lift

 

I recently took my Christmas wreath off my front door. My door was empty, and I didn’t know what I wanted to put up there.

Kimba then did a post on Winter Wreaths here. She listed links to some great ideas….but I fell in love with the gorgeous winter wreath @ StoneGable. So I set out to make my Winter Wreath……

After a few trips to Michaels, I couldn’t find any silver leaves like she used, and then it occurred to me – spray painting my wreath white, wouldn’t really show up on my WHITE front door any way.

It may have turned out a little bit springy……but hey, better to be AHEAD of the season instead of behind!

winter wreath facelift at TidyMom.netI started out with this wreath I’ve had for years and was becoming rather tired of.
1. Remove the metal star and homespun fabric
2. For $3 each I purchased 4 stems at Michaels, 2 of the white plastic “paper coin” branches (like StoneGable used) and 2 yellow/green flower stems
3. Break the stems down, pull/cut the flowers/coins off the stem so you have little individual bunches.
4. Randomly hot glue all around the wreath.

I know it’s not rocket science…………….
and it’s nothing “out of this world”
but it’s a lot better than the poinsettia wreath I had on the door!

What’s on your front door?
