Awhile back I picked up two metal star wreaths at the thrift store with the full intention to revamp them for the holidays.
The first one I did for Halloween and wound up like this.
So I got to work on the second one for Christmas.
Initially I wanted to do it in a glossy red but when I spray painted it with primer to get it white, I really liked it in the white. I haven’t shown a ton of our home yet but our entire house is painted white. I am a huge fan of white mixed with wood, vintage and galvanized metal. By the time I am done decorating our house I’ll probably be sick of it and want to go full on colour.
For this, I just spray painted it with primer, followed by Rustoleum spray paint in Blossom White. Then I wrapped a whole bunch of white yarn and twine around it, added some of balls from the other twine garland that I had made and of course, jingle bells. I have an insane collection of jingle bells in this house. I don’t even know how they got here. I go to the stores, I see them and think “Oh I love you you’re coming home with me”. It’s all great and dandy until you’re trying to close your door very quietly and not wake up your kids. But it’s a great idea to put on the main door so you can hear when they’re trying to sneak out.
Or in my daughter’s case “Hear when Santa tries to sneak in to leave the presents”. We don’t have a chimney. Next house, we must have fireplace. It’s a travesty to live in Canada in the winter and not have a real fireplace. Until then Santa apparently has to master the art of silencing jingle bells.
