Since it’s coming up on the end of January I thought I would share my wreath of the month. Hip hip hooray for wreaths! Yes, I get weirdly excited about the dumbest things….including a-DOOR-naments for your home 🙂 Pun…no extra charge 🙂
Anyhoo…I mentioned as one of my 2015’s goals I wanted to make a new wreath each month and I am here to share what I came up with this month.
It’s my version of fresh and winter in one. I wanted to try my hand at a pinecone wreath for a while now and winter is the most seasonally appropriate time, right?! I simply went pinecone hunting with Will one afternoon and we came back with an entire bag full and one lizard sighting. I also used one of those wire wreath frames that you can get for under $5 at Walmart. I used some craft wire to attach it and I think it was eighty-eight cents.
There are probably much better ways to attach pine cones to wreath forms but I just wrapped it with wire till it was evenly balanced looking. I know there are lots of Pinterest tutorials on how to make pine cone wreaths and I looked at a few…but they seemed really tedious trying to get that wire hidden and everything still secure. I ended up making mine visible because I figured that the spray paint would blend everything together.
I used a crazy color….just because I am nuts like that. Also because nothing says “it’s not Christmas anymore like Green Apple”.
I strapped a piece of fabric to the top to hang it. Nothing fancy….but still goes with my whole winter-not-christmas theme.
Overall, really really fun to get my hands dirty with a little craft….especially since we have been neck deep in basement cleaning/emptying/moving/renovating. How bout you guys? Make any wreaths this month? Share em in the comments! I’d love to see them!
