White, Gold and Blue Wreath for the Holidays

Christmas Wreath with The Canadian Wreath Pop 2013

Good morning everyone,
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was a little cold around here, so I stayed in, cozy in my pyjamas all Sunday. I took time to start decorating the house for Christmas. Have you started decorating yet?

I love this time of the year because I can have as many wreaths that I want around our home without anyone calling me the ‘crazy wreath lady’.  So when a group of my fellow bloggers (14) put a wreath hop together, I dusted off my old wreaths, jumped at the chance to participate and started decorating my own. Make sure to go and see their wreaths, so much inspiration, I know you will love them. You can find a link to their posts at the bottom of this post. If you love Twitter or Facebook, you can follow them with #wreathop

I love traditional wreaths and bought an oversize one last year for our living room but this year when it came to create my own, I wanted to try something different by framing it. As for the color scheme, this was not a difficult decision to make, I went with the colors of my living room: white, blue and gold.

I  chose this small white wreath that I got a year ago from the dollar store. You might have also seen her in one of my Easter posts. This year, I’m all about recycling craft materials and shopping within my home:

DIY White Christmas Wreath with gold frame

You might also recognize this gold frame from my living room wall gallery, I took it down to frame the white wreath. Next week I will show what I used to  replace this frame with:

DIY White Christmas Wreath with gold frame

These wooden letters are from one of my projects last year that I recycled for this project. You can still see the glue from last year’s project:

JOY wooden letters for Christmas

Look at these ribbons, aren’t they beautiful?

Two spools of ribbon of my choice were provided by our sponsor May Arts for this project. Please make sure to check out their gorgeous Christmas collection of ribbons and more, you might find one you like. For my Christmas wreath, I chose a gold ribbon and a blue one with a gold edge. It was nice to work with these ribbons:

May Arts Gold and Blue Ribbon

1/8 Inch Solid Ribbon Navy/Gold Edge ribbon
1/8 Inch Solid Ribbon Gold ribbon

I wanted to find a way to add the word ‘JOY‘ without hiding the wreath but matching it by using the ribbons. I took my hot glue gun out and glued the ribbon to the wooden letters:

07 Christmas Wreath

I nailed a metallic hook to the back of each letter so I could attach a gold metal wire and hang them from the frame:

JOY for the Holidays with gold and blue and gold May Arts ribbons

with the ribbon I had left, I wrapped it around the small white wreath:

I also made a little bow out of it at the bottom of the wreath and attached tiny gold and blue gift ornaments next to it. I love how the ribbons adorned the white wreath:

the final touch, was to wrap this beautiful gold garland around the frame and add a small gold ornament from the dollar store:

May Arts Ribbon for my new Christmas Wreath 2013

I love how this gold garland wrapped the frame, it’s full of glitter and made a terrible mess in the process but I think it was well worth it. Who doesn’t love glitter at this time of the year?

      Thanks so much Alex! :-) I’m glad you like it, the idea of framing it came when looking around the house to see what I could use to decorate the mini white wreath with, glad it turned out nice but was scared it wouldn’t :-)

  • Lauren @ The Thinking Closet says:

    Love this Canadian Wreath Hop! So much fantastic inspiration from ladies I love! (Ha ha, I chuckled at your play of words on “the crazy cat lady” with “the crazy wreath lady.” It’s true – - the holidays are a time to embrace the notion of wreaths EVERYWHERE. And the fact that this wreath is like two in one makes it all the more spectacular! Oh, and that gold garland is SO elegant! I’m really impressed by the supplies from May Arts. I couldn’t tell from their website – - are they only in Canada?

    November 25, 2013 at 1:35 pm
    • now at home mom says:

      Thank you so much Lauren, so happy you got it my: “the crazy wreath lady” ha!ha! I have lots of wreaths on display around the house, hubby thinks I’m nuts but that’s okay! :-)
      I liked the ribbon I worked with, it’s beautiful and solid too & they have retail stores in the US as well :-)
      thanks again Lauren, hope you have a beautiful week!

    Very timely for me! I intend to make a new front door decoration. Thanks for all the lovely ideas. They have given me an idea! I have done a bit of charity work doing “fairy hair” and you know what they say “do what you know!” I wouldn’t have thought in a million years of combining “fairy hair” with a Christmas wreath but after reading your blog…….:)
