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?
