I created an easy to do Rustic Natural Element Christmas Wreath for our door this year. You all know me by now, and I don’t like to continually buy new things to decorate with, so I normally reinvent whatever I have on hand. This year I went to the basement and found 10 straw wreath forms that I had covered with burlap about 3 years ago (probably right when burlap became popular), they got my wheels turning so I brought 2 of them up (one for the front door and one for the side door).
I’m also impatient when it comes to projects so I decided to go for a walk around the property and trim off some berries and pinecones to come up with my Rustic Wreath, I live to far away to run to a store everytime I get a brilliant idea LOL. The rosehips grow wild all over our field so I always have plenty of those to cut and we also have several pine trees to find cones under. So me and the dog got a nice walk and I found the materials for my wreath. Now all I needed was a bow to complete it all.
I went into my craft room and found some leftover robins egg blue burlap from my fall wreath so that was what I would be using. I’m excited to create a winter wreath for free, and it matches the colors I am using for Christmas this year. I really hate creating clutter in my home so anytime I can reuse anything I’m all for it, especially with seasonal items. This wreath can be used all winter, it certainly doesn’t scream Christmas. Hubby and I also went and got our tree yesterday, we cut 9 ft tree this year instead of a 25 ft tree. It sure won’t take nearly as long to decorate. The boys don’t really care if we have a tree or not so I’m not going to make it difficult on myself. I hope to have time to get to it after school one day this week.
