Who doesn’t like a good wreathe? No matter what the season, there’s always a reason for decorating your front door. It’s the first thing guests see when they walk in, after all, and everyone wants to give a warm first impression.
After removing all of my Halloween decorations for a more Thanksgiving-friendly fall look, I realized that my poor door was saaaaad 🙁 The skull ribbon-embellished metal cat wreathe was gone and my black door stood stark, cold and alone. I’d recently picked up a grapevine wreathe from Michaels with the intention of creating a cute wreathe for Christmas, but decided today that I needed a fall interim wreathe to get me through the next few weeks.
So, I grabbed that grapevine wreathe, some bargain ribbon I picked up at a previous Michaels sale, leftover wire and my scissors and set out to make a 5-minute lazy man wreathe. I didn’t even waste time making a pretty bow. Lazy. I know.
I loosely tied the ribbon to a piece of the grapevine and wrapped the ribbon around the wreathe at a rather irregular looping pattern and then tied the two ends together to secure it into place.
Then I made a big bow and let the ends hang just about 6″ inches.
To hang the wreathe up on the door, I simply looped some wire around the top and made a small eyehole loop to hang off the existing nail in the door.
And that’s it! Looking for something a little more elaborate? Check out my Felt Flower & Bird Yarn Wreathe!
