This week we are talking Wreaths ......Yes, the round things we hang on our front door......but they don't have to only hang on the front door and they can actually be FUN!!!
So, wreaths do typically hang outside your front door.....and they look great there! On the flip side....there are so many places to incorporate a wreath into your home. You can hang them on your kitchen window (or any window), you should hang one on a mirror or window frame because the look is incredible and it instantly adds warmth to a wall space. Ribbon (and a thumb tack) is an excellent way to hang the wreath. This may sound very "Country" but the style comes more from the Ribbon you choose than the wreath itself.
Okay, so when you think wreath do you think green? I do, but there are so many varieties for all styles of looks. There are burlap, floral and fancy shmancy mesh wreaths. There are round wreaths, square wreaths and wreaths that don't even look like wreaths.....but are. Check these out!
So my point is, wait for it.........there's nothing boring about a wreath. Your challenge this week is to think about where or how you might incorporate a wreath into your decor.
A few tips.....grab a sweet treat or cocktail (you've been denying yourself all month but lets be honest, they say we only have to be good 80% of the time) and kick back:
Tip One: If you haven't, it's time to think about taking that Christmas Wreath down....or at least take the Red Bow off the greenery. I know, believe me I know, it's hard to decide what to put in it's place. You could leave it blank until Spring but what fun is that??? You can get one of the burlap wreaths I mentioned or put up a wreath with cotton stems. This is my new favorite Winter look. Check these looks out!
Tip Two: Get some awesome ribbon and a boxwood or magnolia wreath and play with places to put it. As I mentioned they're great over a mirror, on a window or chalkboard. They also look great in a basket with blankets or a picture frame.
Tip Three: Valentine's Day is a month away. Add a FUN holiday wreath to the back of a chair you really don't use, hang it on a hook by the front door or prop it up on your mantle.
We have a few awesome wreaths we are offering this week or if you're crafty you can head to your local craft store and have a fun project with the kids. Whatever you do, ENJOY it! It's all about you. Cheers until next week.
