My favourite holiday of the year will be here in 52 days! I’ve already started with my Christmas gifts so I decided to start with the decorating too. This year I decided to start the decorating with the front door and made a rustic Christmas Wreath. It was simple and free! I’m trying to watch my pennies because I have a few renovations going on right now with the basement and my daughter’s room, so free is fantastic in my world!
A simple rustic Christmas wreath
It seems every Christmas I change up my wreath, which is fine since I try to re-use as much as I can. When I saw this one on the Pottery Barn website , I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Mine is not exactly like theirs but it’s my take on theirs without the $129 price tag.
So this is what I did this year to reuse what I already had and make a pretty wreath.
I took last years Fall wreath and some clippings from my yard . First, I remove all the stuff off of the old wreath. I kept everything because I’m sure I will reuse everything at some point.
I had just used hot glued and used some wire to hold the thing together so it was pretty easy to take apart.
Then I took some pinecones I had in my stash and spray painted them with silver spray paint to give them some shine.
I added in the greenery to the either side using some wire and hot glued and tied the pinecones to the middle of the wreath. Tada. I have a new wreath. I have a feeling the greenery may not last until Christmas but it’s pretty easy to replace the clippings to the wreath. So I am ok with doing that. I supposed I could have used the fake stuff but I have quite a bit in my yard to clip from.
So, it’s official I’ve started decorating for Christmas. I’m loving the pretty new wreath on my front door. It’s simple. It’s Rustic. It’s Christmas!
When do you start? Do you wait until after Remembrance Day or start right after Halloween?
