No More Naked Door

I like to decorate or house, especially for seasons, but during the summer, there isn’t much you can do except brighten the house with lovely flowers.  I bought some silk flowers to put in the vase in our hallway, and that made me happy for a while, but I began to feel like the front of our house was naked.

I’d been wanting a spring/summer wreath since Easter was over and I took down the little egg decoration that had been hanging on the front door.  The problem wasn’t that I couldn’t find a wreath I like.  The problem was that I wasn’t willing to spend $50 for  it.  One day while showing Chad a particular wreath that I thought was pretty nice, he mentioned that I could probably make one just like it.  I thought, he’s right!  So, that’s exactly what I did.  I went to Hobby Lobby during a time when their floral stuff was half off.  I purchased the wreath base and then picked out flowers that I thought would look gorgeous together.  I brought it all home and put it together, hot-gluing to secure the flowers.  I tied a ribbon on the back to hang it up, and it is now adorning our front door.  I have to say that I am more pleased with this wreath than any other that I saw to purchase.  I’m so glad I was able to make it just the way I wanted, and, the best part, for under $25! That might seem like a lot, but comparable wreaths that I liked and wanted to buy were originally $80-$100. Even on sale, they don’t beat the price of this Jennie-made wreath. Feel free to stop by and admire it or wave to it.  There are only a couple more months until the fall decor goes up.
