Woohoo! Thanksgiving is officially over and Christmas garland is being flung around like crazy in the James household! Actually I’m at the Christmas Market right now hustling my goods, but if I were home, garland would definitely being flying in all directions.
Today I’m sharing my first Christmas creation this year, a new wreath for my front door.
I always like something elegant for my front door, but this year I wanted to make something a bit more fun. This wreath cost me less than $10 to make.
I made the twig wreath for the base out of sticks/twigs I collected from behind my house. You can see how easy it is to do here.
I decided to reuse the same wreath I made last January. I just removed the bird and gave it a fresh coat of white spray paint to freshen it up.
For the greenery sprays, I stole a couple of pieces from a garland I already had. Michaels wanted $9.99 for a plain spray. Even at half off, that’s more than I wanted to spend…because I’m cheap like that. 🙂
I made two and added those to my wreath with hot glue.
Two pretty sprays from Michaels and it’s starting to come together. These were $5 for both.
I added this whimsical little snow man who was a part of a set of three my mom found at a yard sale and a fun bow. I share how to easily make a bow here.
So easy! Sometimes less is more. It didn’t take much to bring this cute wreath together!
My Winter Twig Wreath held up pretty well, but now it looks all fresh and new!
