Salutations! I’m blogging in today with a sweet whimsical DIY wreath to add a bit of Christmas curb appeal to any cottage. I just made this little guy using clippings of juniper and rosemary from the garden. It’s not flashy, but it’s just enough.
I was planning on purchasing one when we picked out our tree. But they all looked so dried out and I was afraid if the wind blew the wrong way it just might vanish into a puff of dust. So it’s a homemade DIY to the rescue—she’s just simple and sweet. Plus I just like making things.
I started with a base of wisteria, my honey makes these for me all the time. Isn’t he charming! You can also find these at the craft store made of grape vine. I snipped some sprigs of juniper and rosemary from out in the back garden and secured them into place with green floral wire. Of course it’s not perfect, but it’s simple and understated. I added a red Christmas bow with the ribbon I scored on black Friday.
Busted! The dust on the door is evidence that our bathroom gut is well underway and not quite finished. Oh my, the dust is outdoors too. I didn’t notice it was so dusty until I saw it in the photo. I’m keeping it real with a dusty door.
I do, however, draw the line with the toilet that’s sitting in the side yard. Christmas twinkle lights, a sweet little wreath, and a toilet in the side yard, I guess that says Christmas this year. Grin! Everything is out of the bathroom except the flooring—fingers crossed for smooth sailing!
