Mini Wreaths

I LOVE to Decorate with Wreaths!
Here is How-to for the Mini Wreaths, I did for My Cupboards-
Cause, They needed a little Wreath-ness!



I Couldn't find little Wreaths,


so I used a plain stick garland,


that was all rolled up at the store,


in the perfect little round, wreath-like bundle.


But I Didn't unwind the Garland,


Instead,


I bought a bundle of the Greens that I Liked


{this Cute Stuff was Eucalyptus}


and I clipped it apart and Wired it to


the bare wreath Base.


(Remember, I used something that was intended to be unrolled and used as a Garland, not an actual wreath!)


For the Over the Door Look,


I Used one of Those 3M Scotch Hooks,


Upside Down,


So I could Loop the Ribbon Onto it!



{Wah-La!}

Looks so fresh and happy. Don't you feel clean to have green fauna in your home? (Even pretend stuff?)
Love the hooks (use 'em everywhere) - that's My Jer!

I never would have thought to turn a hook upside down. You are positively brilliant.

Refreshing idea that's simple and enjoyable for any decor.... I also use those hooks for my extra keys posted on an antique chalk board from the early 1900's.....in my back door entry. I am not searching for the keys anymore.

I was hoping to see how the cupboard itself had gone from the 'before' to the 'after'!

I have been using an upside down 3m hook to hang a wreath on my front door and it is so much more of a polished look. Eucalyptus is usually a teal color, where did you get it in bright green? Love it! Love LOVE your blog!

Kim said...

Brilliant with the upside down hook!

Jeralyn said...

@Joanna, I got it at a local craft store, that is now out of business! Sorry, I'm no help there!
Thank You for your kind words, though!
