Remember back to the fall Pinterest challenge where I made this wreath….
Well until this past Sunday, it was still hanging on our front door. So I got busy in transforming it into something a little more festive for the Holidays. I made sure that I attached everything with wire so that I could change out the flowers and W at any time of the year. So I removed the flowers and hit up Michaels and their 50% off all Christmas decorations and found these.
I began by cutting the stem down (it was super long) and just started pushing the stem into the wreath and manipulating the gold berry’s to fill the wreath.
I did secure the berries to the wreath by tying it off with some wire. It was too small to even notice.
I continued around the whole wreath.
And then hung the finished product.
It’s very festive and I love the touch of gold the wreath gives off. One thing I don’t love is our front door. My fall goal was to paint it but never got around to it. It’s like a burnt orangish-red that is not very pleasant on the eyes. Maybe by next spring Andy and I will have enough money saved to just replace the whole door…maybe something like a black door with windows on the top, that’s what I’m feeling at this moment, although my feelings on doors changes with every season. This fall I was thinking a Firehouse Red color, and this spring will probably be a gray color….so who knows what color our door will actually end up.
