This simple wreath is perfect for this lazy girl. I put it together from two junky things I found in the midst of cleaning and organizing the workshop. I can hear you laughing now. I’ll never get the workshop cleaned and organized. I like to think I will.
I also wanted to remind you about the two giveaways. Still time to enter both. The links are at the bottom of this post.
A look at just a bit of the wreath. Those white flowers are soooo pretty and they're the perfect contrast to the grapevine.
Now I'll walk you through the project process.
A look at my workshop. At least a part of the workshop. What a mess. Every once in a while I get the organizing bug. Mainly because I run out of space to work. It's also hard for me to work with clutter everywhere. My mind goes a little crazy. I can't focus on any one thing. Does that make sense?
For this organizing episode I started with the table. It’s a great catchall place.
The partial wreath was hidden under a couple of things. I think at one time it was part of a larger wreath. I pulled this bit out of the middle of the large wreath for some reason or other.
I kind-of like the unstructured look. Bits of grapevine hanging everywhere.
Next I spotted the bit of flower stem on the table.
Put the two together. Ta-Dah. See how easy that was. Some of my favorite home decorations are bits and pieces of stuff just thrown together.
Now I had to find a place to hang it because it is just too darn cute. I decided to hang it over the painted canvas on the mantel. But new plan. I wrapped twine around the wreath and hung it on the candle holder on the mantel. Perfect.
Well, I think it’s perfect but you guys may not. I’m kind of an asymmetrical, not in to perfection, type of girl.
The simple wreath makes me smile and that’s a good thing. I’m even doing the happy dance.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money or buy fancy stuff to decorate your home. Look around the house, shed, garage, workshop and see what goodies you might find.
