Since we moved into our house, I have been debating on whether
or not to put up a wreath on the front door. The door has
a large glass window, so I have always been worried
about hanging one on one of those over-the-door hanger.
Then I started thinking that I could hang one to the right of the door
under the lamp. But, I realized the house numbers were there.
So, for quite sometime, it was looking like our house
was going to be unfinished, just plain wreathless.
A few weeks ago, though, my wreath dilemma got solved!
I came across this idea on Pintrest from the blog Teach.Craft.Love.
I can't believe I never realized to just put the
house numbers on the wreath!
I quickly got to work on my wreath with help from my friend Laura
(who recently went into the wreath business - Whimsical Wreath Creations).
I got all of my supplies from, where else .... Hobby Lobby (I feel that my
blog is just an advertisement for that store, they should start paying me).
I decided to go with a late summer/fall theme and make the wreath
simple by just using sunflowers. I just stuck the stems in on the
left side of the wreath and bent them around until it looked right.
Some of the little colored balls/fake berries fell off in the process
so I just stuck them in randomly around the wreath for more color.
Next, I pulled the house numbers off the front of the house
and I painted them yellow. Then I attached
them on the right side with clear wire.
I plan on making more house number
wreaths for each season!!!
Jarrett hung the wreath up for
me after I had many failed attempts. Apparently
I put too many nail holes in the house.
Awwww the house feels so much more complete!! And pretty!
