Every year for Christmas, my parents give us a fresh wreath for the entryway. It is nice to pull into the driveway and see the festive evergreen. It is so nice to smell the fresh pine every time we go in or out of the house. I wanted that same feeling again...just not so wintery.
I found the perfect grapevine wreath at the dollar store for...you guessed it...one dollar. SCORE! I also picked up a roll of twine while I was there. SCORE AGAIN! I began wrapping and wrapping and wrapping the twine around the wreath. I was hoping it would look a bit like this.
Unfortunately, Allison at A Glimpse Inside used a solid foam wreath rather than a grapevine wreath and she used two spools of twine, neither of which I had. Well...I took my wreath that was wrapped only three quarters of the way and attached flowers to the lower left side. I made three satin flowers using this tutorial. It stayed that way for over a week...until...I saw this.Nikkis' Nacs put her house numbers in the wreath. How cute is that?!?
I decided that my wreath needed numbers. I found some cute ribbon that had all the colors of my flowers, turquoise, white and red. I played with several different ways of attaching the numbers, but decided this was just too cute.
I love that you can see the house number nice and large from the street and the turquoise and red just make me think of summer.
At some point, I may decide to finish it. Or I may just decide that it's already finished.
