Homemade Woodland Wreath

Last year during Christmas, I put this ‘Peace’ decal on a large mirror in my living room and after the holidays I just never took it off.  I liked the everyday reminder to channel peace into my crazy life.

This year, in keeping with the woodland theme, I thought a pretty wreath would draw attention to the word that was too thought-provoking to remove a year ago.

I had some artificial willow branches and a swag of greenery from my local trader joes which would do the trick.

I made a circle out of the bendy willow branches and secured with floral wire.  One by one, I added cedar pieces to the circular form.  I chose cedar because it is a little drapey and organic in form, which both keeps the wreath from being too traditional and works better with the woodland theme.

I love it.  In fact, several times during the night I just looked at it and thought, “I really like that”. 

Do you do that?  Make something and then when it turns out just like you hoped, you’re smitten?


Have a LOVELY Monday!

    I love it! Simple and festive! And yes… I totally do that. It’s so satisfying to make something and love it. On the flip side, it’s so annoying to make a bummer project! Inspired by your vase, I gave etched glass paint a try on an ornament and I think I need more practice :)
