Put a little love on our front door!
We moved to Little Rock four years ago this month. When we moved in, I decorated our front porch with two ivy topiaries that I had purchased from HomeDecorators.com when we bought our Florida house in 2001. I have used them extensively over the years but decided this year, as they were approaching nine years old, that I was done with them. So for fall this year, I broke down and bought some wreaths and made some other wreaths for Christmas decor. But now it's January! Now what? I decided to make some wreaths that would last until summer. What to do? I did some exploring on Etsy for inspiration and off to HoLo I went.
I ended up with two grape vine wreaths and 4 strands of garland. Luckily the garland was half price, which coincidently swayed my decision to go with garland instead of stems. I put a strand of leafy garland around the wreath and attached with florists wire. Then, laid the pink garland on top of it and attached with more wire! A few days later, I was back at (you guessed it) HoLo and saw these cute LOVE hangers and thought they would fit inside the wreath. I came home and with more florists wire got busy!
My dear friend, Amanda took these pictures for me and has also blogged about door decor in her blog: http://www.myheartsdesireblog.com/ Thanks girl for snapping the pictures and for suggesting a craft blog....I do believe "craft" was the word that made me go for it!
