Wreaths

I've been wanting a new wreath for my front door for a long time!  I've finally got one!

I took a straw wreath, 3" square pieces of fabric that I cut with a wavy edges and my hot glue gun.  I wanted to work on this last weekend but couldn't because of the power outage!  I finally got to work on it this week and this is what the finished wreath looks like.

The word IN was purchased from my friend at VintageEmbellishment on Etsy.  She sells vintage marquee letters and I was fortunate enough to find this in her shop!

Then, while on the subject of wreaths, I wanted to get some letters for family members for Christmas and I purchased letters from Peppercorns2  and yes, VE and Pepper are sisters!  

I was rushing to get these done before it got dark today so you aren't seeing the actual finished wreaths but you can get the idea.

I am using wonderful Sweet Huck wreaths and simply attaching the letters to the wreaths for a welcome feel to their homes.

I just love these Sweet Huck wreaths!
 LOL, no, the M really isn't that off center once I got the letters wired into the wreath!
And they do look better now that they are wired in!

I have a great head start to Christmas presents!  I even have one full set of cluster balls with bowls finished!  Woohoo!

Love how you did your front door wreath and thought it was so clever do put the "IN" on it!!

Your sweet huck wreaths are awesome. Love the wild look. Some lucky people to get them for Christmas.

That is such a great idea for the word IN, wish I'd thought of it. :)

I love the initials in the sweet huck wreaths too. Very nice gifts.
