White Wreath for Vintage Ladder

White Wreath for Vintage Ladder

Normally, when the holidays come, I see so many posts showing lovely pom pom wreaths. I always want to make one, but it seems that the holidays come and go and I don't get one made. So, I decided to make one early. (It is Christmas in July after all, right)

I have a vintage ladder in the spare bedroom and thought a wreath would look nice on it. So I decided to make a white one. Partly because it would go with the quilts on the ladder and partly because I had white yarn.

I love old quilts and love to collect them. I have a few that my grandmother made but the rest I have picked up here and there. I have had this ladder for a long time and finally decide to put it in this bedroom with some quilts on it. I thought it needed something else and so a wreath came to mind. I had white yarn so made a white pom pom wreath and then hung it on my ladder.

Although I liked it, the all white wreath seemed blah! Maybe I should have made it more random or used another color. How could I fix this? I had no other pom pom yarn that would work so I looked in my finer yarn basket. I use these ones for crocheting doilies. I picked out a beige one and then mixed the two yarns together to make new pom poms.

These new pom poms have just enough color in them to dress up the white wreath. I added a few here and there and I was happy. What do you think? Do you like the plain white wreath or the addition of a the beige pom poms?

Fall Sunflower Wreaths

New Sunflower Wreaths

While we were in Vermont, the weather was cool and I got into the fall spirit. So when I came home, I decided to update the plain green moss wreaths that were left on my front doors. 

I thought about buying new ones, but figured I could just add flowers and they would be fine and I was right. You have to use what you have.

A Square Spring Wreath

There are so many beautiful wreaths. I was thinking about what kind of wreath I wanted for my front door. As I looked at my supplies, I found some flowers I could use, but no base for the wreath. 

Then I found a frame, I knew it would make a great base for my wreath.

Fall Wreath from Natural Coffee Filters

I love wreaths. I always seem to be making a new one. Are you that way; liking the old, but wanting something new? I have a perfectly lovely fall wreath, but I had an idea. 

I have seen wreaths made from coffee filters and I wanted to make one myself for fall/Halloween.
