DIY White Winter Wreath

I am dreaming of a white Christmas…

Which is not terribly far fetched considering I live in Utah and we’ve already had more than three feet of snow this season. What I am really looking forward to though is a home decorated with white - starting with a white winter wreath on the front door.

This was a super-quick project (you know what a fan I am of quickie crafts) and soo inexpensive (like, dollar store priced).

I started out with a regular grapevine wreath. I purchased it for about $6, but I see them at the dollar store all the time.

I took it out on the deck and spray painted the entire thing a nice crisp white.

What a difference a little paint makes!

I also gathered a few winter white items that I had on hand to decorate the wreath.

A couple of white glitter snowflake ornaments from the dollar store…I have a huge box of them, because they fit with every tree and always look fantastic. These little snowballs were actually on a branch that I had used as part of an old Christmas tree and a little owl that was actually purchased (and not used) earlier this fall…

I made quick work of this project late one night quickly glueing all of the items on the wreath. It took a total of 15 minutes at most.

I also added some white glitter for a little sparkle. It looks like snow when the light hits it.

It’s crazy ridiculous trying to photograph a wreath on my south facing glass door, but I really do love the way the wreath turned out. The best part is, it’s a piece I can leave up through January!

Do you usually have a wreath up on your front door?

  1. Cute little wreath and bird!

    I have an Autumn wreath and one for the Winter that I put on our front door. We also have front door lights that I might add some greenery to along with a bow. You know, change things up a bit. When you get into decorating for the holidays you’re always looking for new ideas to try.

    • Elisabeth, Thank you so much for your sweet comment about my wreath :) I totally agree with your comment about new ideas. Just in the last few weeks I’ve seen so many fun things, I want to completely revamp my porch! xoxo, Tauni

  2. First of all, LOVE this wreath! I can’t wait to make one. And secondly, I opened this e-mail a few minutes ago and deliriously read the post title as “DIY Teeth Whitener.” ha ha I started scrolling down and didn’t see a darn thing that had to do with teeth. I said to myself, “How in the world is this wreath going to help me whiten my teeth?” Is it late? It sure is! ha ha Thanks for the idea!

    • Alli, Thanks for your fun comment, it definitely gave me a good giggle. Maybe I should find a DIY teeth whitener…sounds like there would be at least one person interested. LOL. If you do end up making a similar wreath, let me know. I would love to see it! xoxo, Tauni
