With Christmas behind us, it’s now time to look forward to the new year. Can you believe I’ve already taken down my Christmas wreath in exchange for the new winter wonderland wreath I made? Yep, it’s out with the old and in with the new for me, and I can’t wait to show you how pretty this wreath project turned out for me!
I’ll be the first to admit I’ve been a little wreath happy lately, but when inspiration hits I can’t put a stop to it. I have to obey!! Even though I made two wreaths for the fall season and two for Christmas, I’m sure that this winter wonderland wreath will last me until Valentine’s Day. I think…
This may surprise you, but I despise winter. Despise it with a passion, actually. Hate may even be a better word. I hate cold weather and everything that comes along with it, including ice and snow. So, why make a winter wonderland wreath, you ask? Because this beautiful snowy mesh caught my eye when I was out shopping at Walmart, and I just couldn’t resist picking up a roll. As much as I loved my thrifty winter wreath from last year, this roll of mesh made me want a new one.
This wreath was so simple to make and didn’t take very long. All I did was cut the mesh into strips about 3 inches wide by 18 inches long and tie them around the styrofoam wreath form until it was covered. Then I added a couple of snowflakes to finish it off.
Check out that beautiful, snowy texture! As much as I hate snow and cold weather, I can’t help but love this wreath. I’m not sure when I started despising cold weather so much, but I’m pretty sure it was intensified when I lived in Minnesota. You see, I loved playing in the snow when I was a child, but snow in North Carolina was rare and didn’t stick around for too long because the temps didn’t get very low. But life in Minnesota was a lot different, and I was so sick of mounds of snow and below zero temps by the time the second year rolled around I was thankful the U-Haul truck was rolling back to NC!!
I guess I can enjoy my winter wonderland wreath because I know there won’t be much snow and ice in my winter forecast. At least that’s what I’m praying for, and in North Carolina, it usually is the case. Tell me, do you like wintry cold weather and snow? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
