A simple wreath

I'm not a big "holiday decorator" ...
not because I don't like it ... 
I do like it - a lot actually. 
It's just that I'm lazy --
and hate to take it down.
So it ends up staying WAY too long.
and since its embarrassing to have a Nutcracker on your shelf in April --
I just save myself the embarrassment and do nothing.

My poor, holiday-decoration-less children ...
 what will they tell their therapist in thirty years?

but back to the story --
Our door needed something.
So I added a little paint (more on that later!)

Then it needed something more. 
But nothing too seasonal that would NEVER get changed. 
 I needed something that would last throughout spring/summer.
I'll work on a new one for fall/winter.
(I think I can handle switching up my wreaths twice a year, haha)

So this is what I came up with --
It was very simple! I just wrapped a wreath in cut strips of sheet moss ($8.99 JoAnn, use a coupon!) and attached it with hot glue! Then I took a paper mache "A" (Hobby Lobby, $2.47) and covered it with twine that I already had on hand. :)
 So that's it. :)
 I love the texture of the moss and twine together.
and I kind of love the rustic simplicity.
but what I love most is that I don't have to change it for awhile.
I'm not quite done with this front door makeover - so stay tuned.

So, what's hanging on your front door?
Are you good about decorating for every holiday?

  2. This is so cute and simple! I'm obsessed with monogrammed things, but don't have that many. I think I'm going to give this a try.
