It is the most wonderful time of the year, with all of us getting ready for the holidays. I've already got my Christmas tree up and have even made a few decorations. But we cannot neglect the front door, now can we? And so today I am here to show you how to make a rustic Christmas wreath.
I am also joining some very special friends for a Christmas blog hop, so be sure to check them out at the end of this post.
Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
Fall is in the air and there is no better way to usher it in than by placing a wreath on our door or wall. Or at least that's what I was thinking when I made my way down to the local dollar store. I was going to find the perfect fall accessory to make Autumn shine in my home.
Today I am back again with my dollar store crafting buddies. You may remember we did this a while back and I made an easy colorful fence with dollar store flowers.
At the end of this project you'll be able to see what my friends did with their dollar store finds.
As many of you may or may not know tomorrow is May Day. It is the traditional celebration of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. It is also the International Worker's Day in celebration of workers and the working classes, which is celebrated in September in North America.
But today we are going to talk the flowery kind of May Day. Here in Greece, Tradition dictates that we go out into the fields and pick flowers. We then make a wreath and hang it on our doors.
Last year shared my May Day wreath. That happens to be my favorite wreath ever! I knew that there was no way to try and top myself so this year I gave myself a new challenge. I wanted to incorporate something into the wreath that we all have at home. And help the earth while I was at it.
I'll be sharing with you how to make May Day Wreaths with recycled materials.
Spring is unofficially here, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and the weather has warmed up. And to celebrate I have gotten together with my friends to host a spring blog hop.
And for spring to roll in, I'm showing you how to make a green wreath for spring. I have a whole collection of them here on the blog. Of course I was not always a wreath maker. You can see my first attempt here. It was not bad, but I think I've managed to improve a bit.
We are officially into Christmas season! And that means I get to share my decorating with you. Let's start things off with my upcycled Christmas picture frames with wreaths the lazy way.
Today I'm going to show you just how sneaky I can be. I had this lovely set of Ikea picture frames over the sofa. For the past year they had housed Georgia O' Keefe, but when I had the Halloween party I wanted to add something frightful in them and so I opened them up and that is when this happened. I broke the glass in one of them.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
