Advent Door Wreath

Advent Door Wreath

I really like door wreaths. They’re cheap, they make me feel accomplished and festive, and they make our house (brick with white trim and a black door, classic but fairly plain) look a little more interesting.

I knew this year I wanted to make a new Advent wreath for the front door because…what do you put up between Thanksgiving and Christmas if you try hard to keep Advent and Christmas separate? In the past I’ve hung a plain green wreath, but that’s a little boring.

So I made a trip to Michael’s, armed with a coupon on my phone, and spent a whopping $13 to get all the supplies for this door wreath. I bought a plain evergreen wreath, a spray of purple poinsettias, and four picks of pink ornaments.

I used my trusty hot glue gun to make quick work of putting it together and will use some leftover purple ribbon to make a tying loop when I’m ready to hang it up. Done and done.
