Let It Snow Winter Wreath

Hey there everyone! I know you all have been busy busy busy arranging the holiday decor. I just pulled my fall wreath off the door yesterday. We were out of town until then, and driving through my neighborhood I saw some beautiful Christmas decorations. I felt left behind! That’s what I get for going out of town.

Fear not, I caught up quickly. And now, it’s officially winter over here since my wreath is up. I was giggling at myself a little bit today while hanging the wreath as it was probably close to 75 degrees outside. I don’t anticipate any snow this year but a girl can dream, right?

I knew right away that I wanted an aqua winter wreath this year. I just love the color and it looks so pretty against the contrasting white. I did a simple yarn wrapped wreath with lots of embellishment.

There is a mixture of embellishments here. My mom {the crochet queen} whipped up two different kinds of crocheted flowers for me. Oh how I wish I could master the art of crochet. This lefty has such a hard time with it. Then I added some felt flowers, and fabric rosettes. The little white snowballs were leftover from my Snowflake Glitter Garland as were the two snowflakes.

I added the “Let It Snow” bunting last minute, I think it completes the wreath. Don’t you?

I am so pleased with it, the color is so fun and it really stands out from the street! Happy winter :)

    That’s really cute! I’m sure it took a lot of patience to wrap the wreath form so carefully. Not sure I could do it and have it turn out so nicely! The colors look great against your brown door. Here’s hoping for snow!

    What a fun color choice! I think it’s perfect for where you live and I am really jealous of the 75 degree weather!

    LOVE the colors! Definitely on trend this year. Pinning this to try for next year (over-committed on my hand made projects for this year. :-) )

    In love with this and would love to do something like this as a gift for my aunt this year! I don’t know if I could ever make this like you did so my question to you is if you ever make things and sell to people? Or if that is something you’re looking into?
