Décor on a Dime: Christmas evergreen wreath turned winter wreath!

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!
