So I’ve decided to get into the holiday spirit a little early this year. This is the first Christmas in years that I haven’t had to do the whole thing twice (think Christmas in August for a magazine story). This year I’ll just put my tree up once! Well since Christmas has more of a novelty to me this year, I’m getting into the spirit even though it’s still November.
This weekend I picked up this cheap and cheerful balsam wreath at my local Home Depot.
Let’s just say I wasn’t thrilled with the sad little bow. That had to go straight away!
My favourite technique for hanging a wreath is to use a nice length of grosgrain ribbon and looping it through the centre of the wreath. Then I simply use a regular old thumb tack to attach the ribbon to the top (or thickness) of the door. That way you don’t need a nail stuck in your door! So simple! You can totally leave this simple ribbon as is if you like, but…
I added a second piece of ribbon and just tied it like shoe laces onto the first ribbon loop. Couldn’t be simpler!
Merry Christmas everybody!
