This was my front door at Christmas. I had never had a real evergreen wreath before but had always wanted one. I got a coupon for $10 off $10 purchase from Lowe’s, AND the wreath was only $12, so ….it came home with me! :) I added some ornaments and a bow and this is how it looked for Christmas.
Even though I have seldom watered it, it was still green and smelling great the first week of January! I hated to just throw it away, so tried to think of a way to transition it into winter. I removed the ornaments, bow, and berries and sprayed it with some fake snow spray I got on clearance at Wal-mart for $0.62. :) Loved the “snowy” look and it wasn’t looking “Christmasy” anymore – yay!
Then I remembered a white berry wreath (that I found at a yard sale before Christmas) and how much I liked my fall magnolia wreath layered with white berries.
I just hung the white berry wreath on the hook with the evergreen wreath and tucked it in here and there. I whipped up a simple bow out of some silvery (Christmas!) ribbon and tucked it in among the berries…
And my Christmas wreath is now a Winter wreath! :)
Perfect to transition into spring.
My $2.00 investment before Christmas has definitely paid for itself! :) By the way, I just took these pictures this week and the wreath is still looking great!
(Wonder how long it is going to last?? Don’t think I can transition it to a spring wreath, BUT if it is still alive I might just have to think of something! :)
So what have you repurposed lately? Turned any Christmas décor into winter décor?
I would love to hear about it!
Looks great! I'd agree that was a good $2 investment!ReplyDelete
