As we all know Pinterest is very ADDICTING!
As Christmas is getting here, I have been wanting to make the house look amazing and I have loved all the wreaths hanging on windows. In our family room we have three windows and they always look very blah blah blah to me. So when I saw all these wreaths on windows I wanted to try it out for myself.
(all pictures off of Pinterest ... do a search for Window Christmas Wreath)
All of them are just GoRgEoUs!
Our friend Kayla, who also has a blog, sent me a picture of a wreath one day, that she made, and I just fell in love with it. I was just amazed at how pretty it looked. A couple days went by, I saw it hanging in her house and thought this would look great on our windows and just add that something they needed. Then I saw her do a tutorial of it on her blog, I was even more excited! Check out Kayla's Creations. Here is the link to her tutorial...
You will be amazed how cheap and easy this can be for you. I made my three in one night sitting in front of the TV watching a movie. I made the bows to go on mine, the ribbon, pine and gold tinsel garland, and small gold ornaments are from the dollar store. Then I got the bigger ornaments and red ribbon from Walmart, they came in an 8 pack for 97 cents. Great Price! All in All each wreath cost me about $5. Not Bad :)
As you can see at the top of my windows on the valences I added some garland too. I am telling you I can't stand how blah these windows always are. It may be hard for me not to have something hanging on the windows. Also under the garland on the valence I have tulle pinned up there to give it a small scarf look at the top. It sure helps. But I just lopped the pine garland up there, added some gold tinsel garland and the wrapped silver ball garland around the pine and gold tinsel garland. Then I had some white poinsettias left from last year and didn't really have spot for them so I just added them to the top. Its amazing what little things can do for you, especially with items from the dollar store!
(sorry about the bags in the bottom right corner... I did a little more shopping for Christmas decor)
I have more to show everyone but we will start here and continue soon with everything else in my house. I am having a lot of fun decorating this year. I just might be decorating up to the day of Christmas!
