Quick Christmas Wreath

I was trying to forget about the fact that I didn't have a Christmas wreath on the door.

Then my husband pointed out to be that we're the only house in the neighborhood without a Christmas wreath, and he asked why I didn't "just make one." 

So, I decided to "just make one"....but I was determined to ONLY use things I had and under NO circumstances go buy any supplies.  Here is what I dug up...

A thin, rather sad-looking wreath that I have no memory of purchasing.

A yard or so of green tulle I got out of the sale bin at Hobby Lobby.

Some bronze bead garland, and one cat assistant.

No tricks.  No techniques.  I just wrapped.

Glued on some pine0 cones I stole from my own Christmas entry table....(nothing stays in one spot in my house for very long!

I added a some ribbon and a bow, and hung. 

Not too girly, but still husband approves!

P.S. I'm linking this to Motivate Me Monday and Making Monday Marvelous.  See their buttons at their permanent home on my sidebar!


  1. Whats so funny is that he even noticed thats so cute lol! I dont have one either.

  2. It turned out beautiful. I love it that you shopped your home and look at the creation!!

    I always have a wreath on my door but this year my wreath went above my fireplace and I've been at a loss of finding one I love. I can't have the ones with the metal base because of the glass on my front door, it has to be a soft wreath. Hubby has not noticed nor would he even care. Good job for your hubby to notice :)

  3. That is so cute! Amazing what you can come up with when you want to. You did a fab job!

  4. I was thinking the same thing..HE noticed. Too funny. Good job using what was already on hand!

  5. Very nice! I love it when I can create something without having to shop.


I love to hear your thoughts!
