As part of our Lowes Christmas challenge this month, one of the things we could choose to make is a wreath, so that’s what I did. Using an old grapevine wreath that had seen better days, I shopped at Lowes and found some pretty and sparkly things to bring this wreath to life. And wow, does it look so much better now! Lowes has some ready made Christmas things on the shelves and you can find plenty to decorate with in the stores.
My grapevine wreath wasn’t being used for anything else (and my sister was going to throw it out!), so I thought I’d spruce it up again, using just some pretty sparkly leaf fronds and that pair of white pinecones (ornaments) that already had the lime green ribbons attached.
I began layering the leaf branches, by tucking them into the grapevine and using my hot glue gun, made them lay down and in place, moving around the wreath and filling in the gaps. I think I used 5 fronds on this wreath to fill it all in. Then I simply tied on the ornaments to the top of the wreath, so they hang down in the middle.
The leaves are wired, so they are bendable and you can make them do what you want them to. They sit up from the wreath in a 3D effect.
I love how simple and pretty it is, yet classic too. Understated sparkly! I had this hanging on the inside of my door for awhile, but now it’s been moved to front and center of my front door from the street side. It’s going to greet my Christmas guests this year.
I just love those pretty white pinecone ornaments and they are just the right touch for this wreath.
So, if you’ve got a spare grapevine wreath hanging around, head out to Lowes and find some fronds to decorate it with. This took all of 10 minutes to complete and I love it!
Here it is behind my storm door, looking pretty on my stain glassed door. I used a clear suction cup wreath hanger for this. Those come in handy during this time of year when you want to hang wreaths on glass or mirrors.
Are you making any Christmas projects this year?
