There’s a New Wreath Trend!!! :)
Written by on Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

A few Christmases ago, I created this monogrammed wreath for The Seasonal Home’s front door…

peppermint wreath

and the following year, I recycled it to use above the fireplace.

But, this year… I’ve noticed a simpler “single initial” version (representative of your last name) on front doors all over my neighborhood.

They are apx. 16″ tall, lightweight and I’ve seen them with-or-without a frame around the initial (see photos below).

And, you can choose a pre-painted/finished, ready-to-hang & slightly more expensive version, like the ones below…

(typically found in gift & home stores).

or customize – an unpainted version (available on line or at most craft stores) – to coordinate with your decor.

~ Something to keep in mind ~

with the unpainted version, it’s much easier to repaint, to coordinate with different seasons & holidays!

Can’t you just picture this on top of your Christmas tree?

It would look great propped up on your mantel too, any time of year.

I simply “heart” versatile products!! 🙂

I have to admit, this new wreath trend is the perfect match to Summer’s lazy days

because it’s easy to create and although you can display it in a wreath,

it doesn’t require one… only a ribbon, to hang it by.

Enjoy the Creativity!

    How do you secure the initials to the wreath?

      The best 2 ways are to use floral wire or a pipe cleaner (a/k/a chenille stem). Enjoy the creativity Shulond! Eileen
