...I've been waiting for you...
As the first post on the blog, the front door seemed like a fitting place to start. I have to admit, I have a slight obsession with wreaths. I LOVE them! A wreath is such a fun, festive way to welcome people into your home, and the front door is such a fun decorating opportunity! I also like to think that frequent wreath changes give the mailman something to look forward to when coming to our house (although I might be stretching a bit with that one)! Hey, whatever works, right?
Wreaths can be super-expensive, so I prefer to make my own whenever possible, typically with some sort of inspiration from Pinterest or one of the many home décor blogs that I follow. Here are a few of the most recent wreaths we've had on our door.
A wreath that cost only $2.50 (since I had almost everything I needed on hand) and took about an hour to make? I'll take it! I would guess that someone who needed to buy all of the materials could create this
for under $10.
I love the natural look of the twine on the red of the door, and think it is a nice summer look.
