After I took down my huge Christmas wreath, my front door looked totally nekked. And since I didn’t want to offend my neighbors with a nekked door, I set about to make a post-christmas-still-winter-not-yet-spring-wreath.
Fake pine and pine cones are wintery enough. And the big “R” works ’cause my last name is Rumplestiltskin (totally had to google that), you know.
That huge, fluffy wreath started as a typical scrawny pine wreath. I found a couple of scrawny pine garlands on clearance and wrapped them around the outside and the inside of my scrawny wreath to make it big and fluffy. Just twist branches from the garland around branches from the wreath and it will hold.
While I was searching for inspiration for this wreath, I came across all sorts of wintery goodness.
Check out this gorgeous Winter Wedding Wreath @ The Brides Cafe. She wrote a great tutorial showing how to create the whole thing including those beautiful white felt flowers. You could lose the bride and groom and add a winter bird or a little tree.
I love this Fluffy Felt Wreath from Domestifluff. Kristen wrote a wonderful tutorial showing you how to create this fluffy felt masterpiece. You could use any color felt for any season.
I wish I had seen this gorgeous winter wreath @ StoneGable before I made mine. I would have copied her in a second. It’s perfect and her post shows you exactly how she made it!
This icy winter wreath from Grace Violet is a fun and easy way to hide your nekked door until we get a thaw. Bonus? It’s weatherproof!
