Wreath Crazy!

I am ADDICTED to wreaths! I first wanted one to go on my front door at Christmas time. But there were so many cute fall wreaths so I had to get one for the fall. Then spring and summer. Then things got out of hand. I needed a wreath on the inside of the door as well as the back door, and the inside of the back door, and so on. I think I have a problem. Anyway, since cute wreaths can carry a hefty price tag, I had to get crafty to feed my addiction. I had a ratty old evergreen one that I had once decorated but it was looking pretty sad over the years. I stripped it and started from scratch. I found a cute inspiration piece in the Pottery Barn catalog, got some inexpensive glass balls and my trusty glue gun and went to town. I love my new wreath and despite the poor lighting in my photo, it really does look just like the catalog.

Pottery Barn - $99


Mine - $12

You did such a great job. You should go into business.

I love your wreath. I also love wreaths but every time I go to purchase one I end up without because the price is so steep. Good work.

Lovely! Did you go to the wreath class the other night? I missed it, but I'm inspired by your festive creation!

I love stealing "Do it yourselfers" from magazines such as potterybarn and other such home decor.. Although, I am not HALF as creative and crafty as you are Heidi!! You are amazing!! I would have run the other way (I'd be so nervous.) You never cease to amaze me...

Beautiful wreath! You are so on top of things. I just barely got my Thanksgiving stuff out and can't even think about Christmas decorations yet.

Your wreath is great. I love them too, but find I just don't have the time, energy, money to get them. Maybe I will look for a cute Christmas one at all the after Christmas sales.
