Turning Over a New Wreath part 1

Share it Please
I decided last year, after 8 years with the same grapevine and red berry wreath, that I was going to try to create a unique wreath for my front door. I wanted it to be simple but make you think "Never seen that before". Of course, I didn't reinvent the wheel, I just took an idea and expanded on it, the plan for greatness.

I made a giant "K" for "Kughn" (pronounced "coon") out of foam board and garland. I attached different glass balls that matched my indoor decor, some bells, and some tiny battery operated lights. I couldn't have been happier with the way that it turned out.

The other great part about this particular wreath is that for some reason it scared my husband , Jonathan, every time he opened the front door. Added Bonus!

But then, after about a week the top two arms of the "K" began to fold inward. I tried to brace it with rulers hoping it would strengthen it, but it was no good. So, after Christmas, I tore it apart and am left again with the question "What beauty will adorn my front door this year?"

I have decided after much deliberation to try to create a square wreath using a picture frame. I am unsure of how I am going to accomplish this feat. I will meditate in my havens (Thrift Store and Hobby Lobby) and hope that I can reach the goal of the images in my head.

Part 2 of Turning over a New Wreath tomorrow...
