My Non-Traditional Christmas Wreath
This year I decided to make a non-traditional, nature-inspired Christmas wreath for my front porch.
I made the base with balsam fir tips and then tucked in a few sprigs of pine from my backyard.
Then I visited to the Dollar Store in search of the perfect decor. When you live in rural Maine, big craft stores like Hobby Lobby and Michaels are miles from home. So you learn to make do with Dollar Store finds.
I was uncomfortable with the traditional glitzy, glittery Christmas decor and started looking for something closer to nature.
And then I spied it. This adorable little owl was tucked behind the other decorations. I knew I needed him on my wreath!
The flowers and leaves seemed right for making him a cozy home.
It may not be everyone's concept of what a Christmas wreath should look like, but it makes me smile in the morning.
I'd love to see photos of your Christmas wreaths!
