Hi, everyone!

Today I am sharing  a very simple and economical wreath I made for my front door.

It didn't cost me anything since I used everything I already had at home and some leftover materials.

I started with my old wreath from last year. The poor thing has been every color of the rainbow :) and I think I may have to retire it soon, but for now it sits, once again, proudly on our front door.

I had some leftover material from the pillows I made for the bench, not much, but enough to make some fabric flowers to which I added some little pearls in the center like I did with my stenciled winter pillow.
My daughter taught me how to make these a while back. 
So simple!

 And after those were finished and attached to the wreath, I added these little looking branches 
I had from a long ago project.

It still looked like it needed something else, so I went looking in my box of ribbon and realized 
I had some with the little beads on it. I forgot I had this! :)

I asked my husband to cut me a little piece of thin wood which I painted white and stenciled a snowflake on it using the same color paint I used for the winter pillow.

And here is what it looks like all put together


 I am keeping it simple this year, since I know I will start getting the "Spring fever" here soon 
and the porch will get a completely different makeover. :)
What do you guys think?

I will post pictures of the porch soon.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to live me a comment. I really appreciate your visits!
See you all soon!
