For the love of wreaths

My friends know I’m a little addicted to making wreaths. Okay, I’m a lot addicted them. I mean, there are so many different types of wreaths you can make and they are just so darn fun. I made this one on our front door with some gold cardstock that I cut into leaves along with some ornaments I pulled apart and glued onto the wreath. The pinecones were already attached to the wreath. I decided to go with some traditional red and I had to add in my favorite gold accents along with a simple black and white ribbon. Aside from the few glue gun burns, it was an easy DIY and I love the result!

Here is our Christmas mantle. I love love love this book page wreath that was inspired by The Nester. When I first saw it on her blog, I knew I had to recreate it. Here’s a tutorial. After many hours and glue gun burns, you too can have this amazing wreath! I love it on our mantle and it really makes a statement as the center focal piece in our family room. I added some fake topiaries, a chalkboard art I made and some lights and garland. I sewed these stockings last Christmas because I was #madforplaid. I still love plaid so much and joke with my friends I would paint my walls plaid if I could. Now that I type that, plaid wall paper could look pretty darn cool! Ok, I digress. Back to wreath talk, this one gets a lot of compliments and is probably my favorite one in the house. I even made a smaller version for the wall above the guest bed. Go and make one of these beauties because they are even more dramatic and awesome in person.
