So every year I put a fresh pine wreath on my front door. It’s kind of become a tradition.
I am always tempted every year by all the wreath cuteness – yarn wreaths, ornament wreaths, burlap wreaths – they’re all so fun. But I just love the way the fresh pine smells every time I walk through the door!
Well this year, I decided to have the best of both worlds and add some fun decorations to my real pine wreath!
I am soooo in love!
I actually had this deer stuck in the center of my wreath for the last week and a half – and I had been thinking of doing some rosettes in the curve of the wreath, kind of like my Ombre Fall Wreath. But then I saw the felt flowers on the wreaths we featured in last Friday’s Pinterest Feature Friday and I knew that was it!
So I got busy and made a ton of felt flowers. You can find the Rolled Flowers tutorial on my How to do That – Flowers page – and I’ll be adding the Felt Fringe flower tutorial there later today!
You can see that the fringy flower has a bit of glitter on it. That was a happy little accident! (to channel some Bob Ross for ya) I dropped the flower in some glitter on the table – and realized how cute it looked! So I brushed the tops of the felt with glue and dipped them in glitter. Instant bling!
I found my little glitter deer at HomeGoods, and the white trees are 99 centers from Rite Aid! Wooohooo for cheap decorations!
I had wedged the deer and the trees in the branches of the wreath, they were pretty stable since the wreath was so dense. To hold the flowers in place, I stuck a pearl stick pin through the center, then stuck that through the branches. Since the wreath is so dense, it works well, but you could also glue them in. I wanted to be able to remove and reuse them after this Christmas so that’s why I used the pins.
I love the way the pearl looks in the center of the flowers.
I just placed the flowers in an arch, to follow the curve of the wreath and moved them around until I liked the way it looked.
So easy right?
The glitter flowers look so sweet too! And I think our snazzy deer things they’re sweet too.
Can you tell I’m a little in love? :)
So what do you think?
Have you ever dressed up a fresh pine wreath? I’d love to know what you did!
