I always love having a wreath on our door, and some seasons I just get busy and don't put one up. AND-- who has the room to store different wreaths for every season of the year? This year when I took down my Christmas wreath my door felt so sad and empty, so I decided to invest in a faux boxwood wreath that I could switch out a few details and use it through the summer.
I decided to use some leftover red Christmas ribbon and I bought some paper heart cut-outs. You can find all of my supplies HERE
The paper hearts listing said they were glossy, so I thought they had some sort of lamination on them. They don't-- they are just paper. But our front door is covered, so I'm hoping they will last through Valentine's Day. If you don't have a covered porch, these foam or finding some laminated ones might be a better option.
The faux boxwood wreath comes with the black & white check ribbon. Up close you definitely tell that it's not real, but from a distance--especially from the road, it looks real. Instead of removing the black & white check ribbon I decided to hang the hearts down the middle of it. I simply hole punched into the paper hearts and hung them with the red ribbon. This took me 5 minutes to do, and I love the result.
The wreath comes in two sizes, and I bought the 23" one so that you can really see it from the road. Up close you definitely teel that it's fake, but from a distance it really looks nice. It has a vine wrapped back instead oh the cheapy ones that are plastic. That gives it a more realistic quality.
Watch me make my front door wreath:
There are so many things I can do with this wreath to give it longevity right through spring, Easter, and summer-- then it will be time to pull out my fall wreath and put it back up on the door. :)
Happy Valentine's Day!
