It's A Wreath Thing
I love red front doors. This one is from the Feng Shui Society. Isn't it delightful? My front door is not red, but I would love it to be. My front door is bare. This is often the case except in December when a Christmas wreath hangs there. But, this year it was bare because I gave our wreath to someone who needed one last year. Now it is bare. Again. I had decided at some point that something welcoming should be on the front door year round. This sign was hung for Halloween. That was good.
I purchased a clearance wreath early in November, but it somehow never made it to the front door. There was a Christmas wreath..., but now things are bare. Again. I am on the hunt for something for Valentine's Day. I found this one which reminds me of the Christmas fabric wreaths we made in the eighties using this very same technique. I made at least a dozen. This one is made by Celeste at My Greenbrae Cottage. Find her tutorial here.
My baking kitchen door, or window, or wall may need need this one. How can I not love a wreath made of cupcake liners? Well? This cupcake liner wreath was made by one of my favorite bloggers, Jen, at Tatertots and Jello. She has also written a nice tutorial and you can find it here.
Then there is this great wreath. Can a book lover do this to a book? There must be a book I am willing sacrifice. I will have to think about it, but the wreath would look wonderful on the wall just next to the antique typewriter. Hmmmm. Check out the I'm A Yarner tutorial here.
There are hearts, too. Hearts would be good. Check out Jen's tutorial here, at Just for Rachel. Looks great on her red door.
