Awhile back I picked up two metal star wreaths at the thrift store with the full intention to revamp them for the holidays. One got made over for Halloween, and the other I decided to save for Christmas. This is going to be a super short and sweet post on how I made an Upcycled Metal Christmas Wreath, that looks a bit farmhouse fancy.
Which if you know me, is the opposite of what I am.
Super easy and quick – Upcycled Metal Christmas Wreath
The first one I did for Halloween and wound up like this.
Honestly, even I was spray paint and a dollar store crow is pretty impressive.
This is the Christmas version.
Initially I wanted to do it in a glossy red but when I spray painted it with primer to get it white, I really liked it in the white. Our entire damn house is white walls. I am shocked, I know.
I am a huge fan of white mixed with wood decor. A bit of Scandinavian inspired, a bit of Canadiana. A lot of vintage mixed in with way too much IKEA> By the time I am done decorating our house I’ll probably be sick of it and want to go full on color.
Just kidding. That is never going to happen.
HOW I MADE THIS:
- I spray painted it with the Primer, then with Rustoleum spray paint in Blossom White.
- Then I wrapped a whole bunch of white yarn and twine around it.
- Glued on added some of styrofoam balls and of course, jingle bells. If I had mini pom poms, I could have used those too.
I have an insane collection of jingle bells in this house. I don’t even know how they got here. I go to the stores, I see them and think, “Oh I love you you’re coming home with me”.
It’s all great and dandy until you’re trying to close your door very quietly and not wake up your kids. But it’s a great idea to put on the main door so you can hear when they’re trying to sneak out.
Or in my daughter’s case, “Hear when Santa tries to sneak in to leave the presents”.
We don’t have a chimney. Next house, we must have fireplace. It’s a travesty to live in Canada in the winter and not have a real fireplace.
Until then Santa apparently has to master the art of silencing jingle bells.
