Thin Blue Line Wreath

Thin Blue Line Wreath

You may have noticed but other than my love of coffee, I also love changing things up around the house...a lot.  Which is fun, and drives Hubs a little batty sometimes.  Which is how I came to love front door wreaths so much.  They are simple to change, require no help from Hubs and I can make them fairly quickly.  Plus they do not cost much at all, if you make them yourself!  I have made a few traditional style wreaths, and yarn ones as well. Then I discovered clothespin wreaths! Simple, and Continue reading

I set out to Continue reading

Clothes Pin Winter Wreath #DIY

     Did you see my post about our fall wreath?  The Candy Corn Clothes Pin Wreath was fun and simple, and I loved it!  I loved it enough that for the winter, I wanted to make another wreath like it.      For the full tutorial on how to make a clothes pin wreath, please see my fall post here.      The Winter Wreath needed to be more in the icy tones, rather than Christmas colors, because I plan to keep it up for more than the month of December.  I like to do that with some of our decorations, Continue reading
