Who has a wreath habit? Just like dishes from HomeGoods I am a bit of wreath hoarder. My first blog post when I blogged under another name, was a garage sale wreath refresh. But, this wreath update is with a brand new wreath from HomeGoods. I know why would I mess with something new? But it is just the touch I wanted on our new dutch door that leads to the backyard. So here is how to update a wreath in a minute.
ONE MINUTE WREATH UPDATE
Any wreath. In a minute-ish.
It will add a little personality to what is already a beautiful seasonal wreath.
Any guesses? Skip to the comments to guess.
HOW TO UPDATE A WREATH IN A MINUTE
Bells. Bells are my new obsession to add a touch of whimsy to any wreath. My family would call it a touch of something else. #wink
No matter how young or old, bells add a little sassy to a wreath.
Here’s the backstory:
I love bells, chimes and more bells. Bells make a frequent appearance on my interior doors during the holidays. And, then when I refreshed my front door I added a bell.
With the dutch door leading to the back yard and patio, I thought a bell would be a nice little chime when Chloe or Elliott come barreling through their new favorite door.
To begin, I simply pulled the leaves back to expose the grapevine wreath. With my new favorite craft accessory, from a dollar store. They sell this jute-wrapped wire at Hobby Lobby, but I found it a dollar store and thought I would give it a try.
I attached the bells to the wreath. I intentionally offset them to the side. For this closeup, I pulled the branches back, but I usually hide the jute with the leaves.
That’s it! It took about a minute to add the bells. It took longer to hang the wreath because I did not account for the upper half of the door to swish the top of the wreath.
I am on my 2nd nail in the new dutch door.
What do you think? I chose some bells that were not as clangy as the bell on the front door. At this rate, I might end up like the little old lady who hoards wreaths, dishes and bells oh and Bernese Mountain dogs.
Would love a fresh pin!
