Homemade wreaths are my go-to for our front door. They are more affordable than buying store bought wreaths, and I get to customize my wreath to exactly what I want! I designed this Christmas wreath using an embroidery hoop, faux evergreen sprigs, gold magnolia leaves, and glittery orbs. I used neutral colors so it could stay up in January—but if you prefer you could easily substitute in red berries instead of the gold orbs.Read More
In North Carolina the mornings are cool and wonderfully Autumn-esque. All my nearby neighbors have added Fall wreaths to their front doors, and mine still had the magnolia wreath I made in March. It was time for a new wreath, and as always--it needed to be EASY! Because I am a lazy crafter.
I designed this wreath on a whim in Hobby Lobby last weekend. I love the combination of green fern (modern), wood berries, and cotton (touch of Southern). The wreath colors hint of Fall without using traditional pinecones or pumpkins. This wreath is small-budget friendly (I made it for under $20) and easy to customize. And if I forget to swap it out in November, I can stick some cinnamon sticks in it and make it a bit more Christmas-like!Read More
I love a good seasonal wreath on my front door, but like many of you I don't have $40+ dollars to spend each season! So when I spotted a lonely looking $6 pinecone wreath at the thrift store a few weeks ago, I knew it just needed a little sprucing up to make it look fresh and add a natural touch.Read More
Do you put wreaths on your front door? I grew up in the Southeast (Beaufort, South Carolina and later near Savannah, Georgia) and wreaths on the front door are just about as polite as offering iced sweet tea to unexpected visitors. They symbolize a cheerful "hello!" to guests.
I made a cotton wreath for Charlotte Home+Garden in December, and later a copper heart wreath (that stayed on our front door wayyyy past Valentine's Day!). This time I wanted to add something that could stay out in the spring and summer months. Modern but still welcoming.
I happened across faux succulents at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago and knew they would work perfectly for the project! Read below for the supply list and a simple tutorial!Read More
