Art For Your Walls, Decor For Your Home: Simple DIY Christmas Wreath

This year I decided I would enjoy more the process of Christmas decorating, give my old holiday decor some new twist; use what I already own but tweak it for a change; how about that??

I started by changing the front door wreath we had for some years.

It was easy to make and fun!

I didn’t need any new supplies; like I said, I used what I had on hand in my stash of Christmas supplies.

It all started with a simple faux green 14 inch wreath with pine cones, two different kinds of ribbon and eight shatterproof ball ornaments.

I made three of the bows out of gold musical sheets wired ribbon; in the center of the bows I placed few gold ball ornaments. Everything was kept together with the aid of florist wire. The tails of the biggest bow were cut in an angle.At this point I wasn’t worried the bows don’t look very presentable: I knew I would fluff them after they will be fixed on the wreath with some florist wire.

For accent I used 2 shiny green organza bows and 3 more gold balls scattered on the wreath.

What do you think? This asymmetrical wreath was put together in about half an hour, and who doesn’t love a simple DIY project like this??

Isn’t it cute? As you can see it hangs beautifully on our front door.

Unfortunately, none of the photos were made during daylight. With me leaving at 6 in the morning and coming back at 5 in the afternoon, there’s no daylight to catch for my photos; all the photos were done at night. Maybe this coming week-end I will try and do more, but I wanted to share with you this project before then!
