A Different Approach to Wreath-Making

For a couple of months, my front door was naked. It had no cheerful, welcoming decor to clothe it. Several different summery wreaths had been tried on, but none of them fit. It needed something unique and non-traditional in order to cohere with the rest of the home.

I searched Pinterest for non-traditional front door decor. I found inspiration and decided to build my own piece. Here’s what I did.

I found a large canvas frame and a smaller picture frame (with the glass removed). I cut the middle bar of the canvas frame and attached the picture frame to the inside with wood glue and small nails.

Then I painted the whole thing cool-green to accent the mint-colored front door. First I put some flowers on it. It looked okay, but it didn’t have enough visual weight. I wanted it to be more impactful. So I cut a bundle of greenery from my yard and attached it to the outer frame. Result:

Now that’s what I’m taking about. My once-naked door no longer needs to be ashamed.
