So I've never been much for door wreaths. Seemed "old-fashion" to me and I'm just not into big, gawdy fowers, lace, and bows. But lately, I've taken interest in the creative and more up-to-date wreaths I've seen on Pinterest and girlfriends' photos on Facebook. So the crafty side of me had developed an urge to create a wreath, but with an outdoor flare.
I went to Michael's craft store and found one of those vine wreaths on sale, along with a few silk flowers for Fall, a letter "V" for our last name, and some ribbon. I had a couple of items at home already: pheasant feathers and shotgun shells. I used my hot glue gun and glued everything in place and it came out perfect (in my eyes)!
That's something to remember when you decorate: if its perfect to you, then its perfect. Period. Don't worry about what others think. They're not the ones looking at it everyday.
For the ribbon, I saw online where you can use a staple gun and just staple the ribbon on the very top of the door. And that's exactly what i did. It worked!
And as far as my door goes, it will be getting painted this fall. Its a terrible faded shade of red. Its streaky too. It was never painted properly and defintiely needs to be a darker color.
I didn't limit myself on keeping things from sticking out too much. Just let the flowers do their thing. And I didn't paint the wood letter "V" because I felt the white was pretty enough. What do you think? Paint the "V" letter? If so, what color?
