A simple gesture guiding newcomers to your home can make all the difference in their feeling of welcome. Like being greeted by a lighted house on a dark evening, a seasonal wreath says, welcome friend!
For this inexpensive project, try sourcing your items from both your favorite craft store and your own yard or junk drawers.
I was delighted to find a dogwood wreath discounted 75% at one of my favorite home and garden stores during their end of summer sale. Then I got out my hot glue gun and sourced a few treasures from around the house to add some story.
Some silk leaves from a tired cinamomo garland, a few decorative eggs hanging around from spring, and a painted feather butterfly that I hadn't found the right spot for each found a home in this forest-themed wreath. Twenty minutes and a few fabric scraps later, I had a welcoming wreath hung on my door ready to share with YOU!
Enjoy the hunt, use what's at hand, and you'll be surprised how beautifully you can create a welcoming moment.
