I HAD THIS wreath on my door throughout the fall, but with Christmas just around the corner, I wanted to change it up for the holiday. One of my favorite things is little, fat birds, and I found this one at Joann’s with their doorbuster sale for just $2.50. Adding a couple of holiday picks cost another $3.00, so for just $5.50 I got a brand new wreath for the holiday.
The only thing I don’t like about it is the brown bow at the top. Had I been more foresightful, I would not have hot glued the brown bow to the wreath so I could change it out. But I still think it’s a pretty Christmas wreath, anyway.
Here’s what I did. Gather two holiday picks (mine have holly leaves and little red berries) and wire them to the burlap wreath. Tuck the little bird’s wire feet firmly under the wire and there you have it! (I learned from the bow and didn’t hot glue anything to the wreath, so I can change it out for other seasons.) You could use berries, snowflakes, jingle bells, or any other Christmas trinkets you have lying around, or head on down to your favorite craft store (with coupon in hand, of course) and get yourself a few new doodads to add to your decor. With a little imagination and even less effort, you’ll have your door decked out with a Christmas wreath for the holidays in no time!
Another craft I did was this rustic joy hanger. It’s made with painted letters, a small grapevine wreath and a large jingle bell. Easy-peasy!
