We spoke last week about the trendy vs the traditional, and although I admitted that my holiday decorating scheme this year is fairly classic, something about this year made me feel like not using a wreath on our door at all.
It all started about three weeks ago when I saw these little wicker deer heads on the wall at my local craft store. I thought it was still so classic and woodsy, but felt really updated and new as well. With a crisp, white scarf around his neck, he isn’t quite specific to any holiday, but come this December, I’ll be tying a plaid scarf around him and then he’ll definitely have a cozy Christmas charm about him, no? (spoiler alert, there will be lots of plaid in my holiday decor this year)
It’s clear that I’ve already determined he’s a male deer head, but he should probably have a name, too. I’ll think on that one!
I’m not going to lie, you guys are the only people who even see my front door. Since we live on a farm, nobody walks by, and our driveway leads visitors to the back door, but there is still something about decorating the front that I can’t give up!
I’ve you’re interested in your very own deer head, I cannot find it online anymore (check your local Joann’s!) but World Market has a pretty cute version too!
Do you like the change from a regular wreath?
