MONDAY: Holiday Inspiration: Forget DECKING THE HALLS.....Dress up your DOORS!!


Forget about Decking the Halls this year......DRESS up your Door. After all, it is the first thing people see! I put together a collection of beautiful, creative wreaths that will inspire!

Golden-Cedar Wreath

Whether you prefer rustic or radiant, this ideas will brighten any home.
Go for the gold and enrich a simple cedar wreath with tiny bells, sprigs of golden cedar, 
and a matching satin bow.

Oval Holly Wreath

Use holly leaves and berries to provide a brilliant splash of red and green against an  
 winter backdrop. While the sprigs look lovely in a garden, they spread even more cheer when crafted into a welcoming wreath for your door.

Fragrant Wreaths

Fill your home with the sweet smell of bay laurel (or rosemary) with this easy-to-make wreath. And when the holidays are over, don't throw it away: Be sure to wash the wreath well right after you make it so you can remove the dried herbs from the wire frame later for use in cooking.

Cushion Moss Wreath

An inviting wreath composed of cushion moss will thrive all year. Use some or all of the following natural materials to craft a beautiful wreath for your home.

Glass-Ball Wreath

This full-bodied everlasting wreath is crafted from bundles of gold, pink, and silver glass balls on wire stems.

Popcorn Wreath

Popcorn strands are classic tree decorations, but you can also use
 them to create a wintry wreath.

Present Wreath

Unwrap a new wreath idea this year. Cover small containers, such as old jewelry boxes, with weatherproof paper, which will hold up outdoors, unlike wrapping paper; seal with all-weather tape. Add decorative bands in contrasting colors, if desired, and tie with ribbon. Attach to a flat wooden wreath form (ours is 18 inches) using a hot-glue gun. Affix a satin bow.

Forest Floor Wreath

This substantial wreath, made with long Norway spruce pinecones attached to a bed of moss, can last for years if stored properly

Remember to have fun with decorating your door this season!

Here is a quick tutorial on how to make a natural WREATH for your DOOR
