TWIG WREATH

I've decided I really like to have a wreath on my front door.  I like the way it adds some life and interest to the front entrance.  But, it was definitely time to put the Christmas wreath away and it is  too early for the Springtime wreath that I have....so I put together a non-seasonal wreath for the front door.
I picked up all the goodies I needed at (you guessed it!) Hobby Lobby; the twig wreath base and the feathers.


Then I took the trusty glue gun and glued the feathers around the center.  Since the feather trim is a continuous strand, it made it really easy to glue down.  I just did an inch at a time; glue and press; glue and press all the way around.

 Then I glued a few springs of yellow flowers and orange berries into the branches, very sparingly.  I just wanted to give it a bit of color.

It's simple...but that's what I like about it.

We have several months of winter yet to look forward to in Colorado, so this wreath adds a little warmth and color to the door until the spring wreath and planters full of flowers will bring new life to the entire front porch.

Today is pushing sixty degrees, so the warmth of the sun is giving the feathers and twigs an almost caramel glow.  Beautiful!
