Winter Wreath

Made by Me For Monday :)
January is always a fun time to hang a new wreath. The Christmas wreath has come down, and it is too soon to hang a Valentine wreath. So, I decided on making a Winter Wreath for January.

It has been hanging on my door since I took down my Christmas decor, but I haven't had a chance to share it yet :)

The BEST part about this wreath. . .it didn't cost me anything!!!  I made it from a bunch of leftover & mismatched Christmas decor that I was going to throw away.  YAY FOR FREE!

I had this wreath and I had previously added the ribbon to it, but I just didn't love it.  It seemed kind of boring.  Like it needed a little sprucing up. . .

Here it is BEFORE

I will be BLOG HOPPING at some of THESE fun BLOG HOPS this week.

Don't forget about my parties:  Wandering Wednesday Blog Hop, Thrilling Thursday Linky Party, and Fun w/Food Friday Linky.  See YOU there :)
