It added a kick to my Christmas curb appeal and the red and white candy cane ribbon complimented my traditional holiday decor perfectly.
Well, this year, I have decided to take my decorating in a different direction. I have been doing the same thing for over twenty years. Once Thanksgiving dinner ends, my house usually explodes in red ~ well, let's be honest, more red! I love the drama and punches of color peppered throughout the house, but two decades is long time for any habit and this year I wanted to try a more muted and rustic style.
I have been drooling over pared down trees, sparsely punctuated with white or natural ornaments. So this year, that's what I've got and it looks fabulous, I am very pleased.
However, last year's triple wreath, draped in candy cane ribbon on the outside of the house, wasn't accurately representing what was going on inside the house and that is very important to me.
I definitely needed something new, but when I made the decision to revamp my holiday style, I promised myself that I would try to do it without spending a lot of money.
It took me about ten minutes to transform my wreath from traditional to rustic country and since the ribbon was 40% off, the entire spool was less than $2.00. This project didn't require much so I have plenty leftover to use in other areas as I rustic up my home this year.
I simply looped the wreaths together with a piece of ribbon and hid the knots in the back. I made a small loop on top to hang it up!
It was a quick restyle that looks fabulous and I have to say that I am really amazed how different the entire wreath looks now...all due to a small (super cheap!) ribbon swap.
While the white lights aren't up outside yet, my door looks pretty festive now and that's a good start! I think it suits the simple style of the home very well and it feeds my need for pared down decor!
I am very happy with my wreath transformation! If you want to take a peek at some of my other wreath re-dos, here are two of my favorites for spring and summer.
