We've all heard the line "Champagne wishes and caviar dreams," unfortunately, that is not an accurate description of life with a resident. (Unless you're comparing it to med school!) To help make up for the fact that funds are limited at our house, I end up making a lot of our décor. One of my favorite projects is my front door wreath.
I decided to make it very neutral so it would go with seasonal décor easily. I bought a grapevine wreath from a craft store (with a coupon, of course) and some cute burlap ribbon. I also found a B (for Breinholt) and some cute burlap flowers. I kept it simple by wrapping the wreath with the ribbon and then added the letter and flowers off-centered at the bottom.
I wanted a way to make my wreath change with the seasons since it is always up. I decided to use a thin jute string and made a tiny banner for each season. That was way easy and cheap. Because the banners are so small I can use one piece of paper for each one and then either use markers to add accents or stickers.
I love that I don't have to clutter up my storage room with several different wreaths and I love that I can change out one little thing on my wreath that makes it work all year long. Go make yourself a wreath and share what you created!
