I have a thing for wreaths. Love ’em. Given that, I’m unable to answer the question just how many wreaths are too many. But I do know it certainly aint three. Which is, you guessed it, how many are adorning my house this year.
I know I posted a photo of the yarn-wrapped wreath last year, but I’ve hung it over my office door this year and I love it against that vintage frosted glass.
This is one I made two years ago when I went through a jingle bell wreath stage. Inspired by Martha Stewart’s how-to, mine never looked anywhere near as spectacular as hers. Although I think this one turned out okay in the end with the addition of the stars and some more of my old friend: red and white polka dot fabric. I’m a spotaholic.
This year I wanted something new for the front door so I bought a green wreath form and then dressed it up using decorations from Spotlight (where else) and added a little glass owl for whimsy.
I don’t know if owls are actually very Christmas-y. In fact, I generally find things like that a little creepy but there was something endearing about this little Polish glass owl and the way he nestles into the greenery is very satisfying really.
I mean, come on, could you have resisted those
vaguely stoned sleepy eyes? Thought not.
I had great fun experimenting with the bits and pieces I got from Spotty to come up with this arrangement. I love those red and white lollipop-y bits the best. Although the enormous fake poinsettia comes a close second. What’s not to love about enormous glittering stamens.
Has anyone else been feeling the love of wreaths this year?
