Shabby Chic Christmas wreath


So this Christmas....This is a Shabby chic Christmas if you have noticed....
I made a wreath to go with the inside decor...
So...Find some elements that would go together using what i had. No money spent here...


Old Wreath...White lights...
Sprayed snow...


Did it outside...


I had a tassel as the base...The brooch as the center of the flower...Little bird house ornament...
Hot glued the whole thing together...
Snow ball ribbon...


Outside it goes...


Now, i have to figure out how to plug it...
There is always a first time !




Are you ready for the Christmas house tour ?
I worked very hard at it !

Hi Frenchy~
what a lovely wreath. Have a wonderful day.

Susan said...

This is so pretty Frenchy!! I love the tassle :)

I think you have to purchase a small battery pack, to plug the lights in.
I am not sure where you would buy one though. Good luck!

It will be quite lovely lit up!!

Why did I never think to spray paint my cheap green wreath. Genius. It looks beautiful.

Cindy said...

That is fantastic! I love what a little paint can do! Thanks for the inspiration!

That is so clever! Amazing what a little spray paint and ingenuity can do! I never would have thought something so pretty was so inexpensive (or so simple to create). Thank you for sharing your secret!

Not only is your wreath great, but so is your entry way. Loving the stone...

Michelle said...

Frenchy you are such a genius! What a great idea for an ultra fake looking old wreath or garland! I've got some up in my attic - and we have no snow yet. I think you've just given me the decorating idea of the season! Now my wheels are spinning since I don't think I have any white spray paint on hand. I wonder how it would look if I splattered one with thinned out white paint...you know, by shaking the brush at it?

Thanks for sharing.
