Who said a wreath has to be round.......
I really need to start decorating the outside of my front door and the entrance of my home, before time flies and I have nothing done. The Christmas season goes by so fast that before you know it, it is over.
I have had these old picture frames for some time now, just sitting in the garage collecting dust. I never wanted to throw them out (and I love to get rid of stuff) as they were very good quality and there is something nostalgic about them.
I wanted something a little different to decorate my front door, and thought maybe these frames can come in handy.
I absolutely LOVE spray paint. So fast and so easy to do.
Purchased a nice gold colour and went at it. Hate the smell, so I always spray paint outside.
HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS:
First get yourself some old picture frames. You can find a wide range of frames from your local thrift store, in any size you like, and some of them are very ornate and great quality too.
Here are my frames ready for some spray paint. Remember to dust them off. Don't be like me, and get really excited about spray painting that you forget to clean them up. Yup, I spray painted some dust.....lol
I too the frames behind the garage where there were many branches that were down from Hurricane Sandy.
I lay the frames on top and spray painted. Actually, those branches are going to come in really handy when I do my outdoor Christmas decorating.
Stay tuned for that.
Gather up some greenery. I used real cedar branches from my huge cedar trees in the back of my house, that are over 30 feet tall.
I put together 4 or 5 branches, and secured them with some wire.
Using some wire wrap them over the frame.
Continue in the same manner all the way around the frame. I did the lower half only, as I wanted the frame to show through.
....and here it is hanging on my front door.
I added two little white feathered birds.
Found these very pretty green leaves, and I thought that I would do another picture frame wreath for indoors.
I hot glued them half way around the frame.
I am almost done.....keep watching for the final product and where I decide to hang it. I still don't know yet where I am going to hang it but I will find a place.
Thanks for looking.
Have y'all started decorating?
Let me know if anyone tries this type of wreath; would love to see.
