Ten Minute DIY Winter Wreath

Ten Minute DIY Winter Wreath

I’m always so relieved when the Christmas decorations come down. After a month or more of decked halls, I love the fresh feeling you get when the boxes have finally been put away and the rugs have been vacuumed of every last pine needle and piece of glitter.

But I like a little winter decorating too.

In fact, winter gives me a chance to indulge in my favorite combination: rustic + sparkly.

Winter itself is full of that combo. Think snow on a bare branch or a bit of ice on a pine cone. To me, the contrast makes it beautiful.

Last year I used that combination when I quickly put together this wreath. And I do mean quickly.

It started with a big $1 snowflake that I found at an estate sale. I knew right away I wanted to use it in the center of a wreath.

I didn’t even use glue, although this year I may add a drop or two because the branches tend to droop forward a bit.

And I didn’t bother to attach the snowflake to the wreath. I just hung them both from the same wreath hanger.

It couldn’t have been simpler and I think any large, winter-themed Christmas ornament would do for the center. I hear there are some good sales on those right now.
