It's time for another super simple décor project ~ and this one is for Christmas ~ the most wonderful time of the year! I adore everything Christmas and I really enjoy decorating for the holidays, but I do not like complicated projects and as much as I want the house to look fabulous, I refuse to spend a lot of dough.
I have always liked the look of those triple wreaths I have seen in catalogs. They usually come pre-lit and are super pricey. I change my mind about décor way too much to pay a lot for anything, so every year, I pass and toss the catalogs in the garbage. This year, however, after seeing a pretty pin from 5th and State, I decided to make my own!
To decorate my living room, I always hung three small embellished wreaths in my windows. I got them for a song and each December I have put them up, out of habit, for almost ten years! Yikes!
Of course, if you don't have three wreaths handy, you can pick them up for a song at either the craft or dollar store. If yours are unadorned, a few sale picks can jazz them up!
(Pardon the old, blurry picture)
This year, I wanted a cleaner look in that room, so I decided to lace up my wreaths and hang them on the front door. I just cut three even lengths of ribbon, looped them around two wreaths and made a knot. I hid it in the back, under the branches. It honestly took me less time to string them together and put them on the door than it did to write this post.
I don't like over the door hangers, I find that my door never closes properly, so I used a magnet. I love the way the wreaths look like they're floating in the center of the door. I was going to use red ribbon, for contrast, but I had this candy cane stripe on hand and I think it looks sweet, subtle.
This project would look equally as sweet with berry wreaths, twig wreaths, even three wooden stars would look great looped together. The possibilities are endless!
I am very happy with my project and my house is smiling now....is yours!
