Easy Up-Date for a Christmas Wreath

An Easy Up-Cycle for a Christmas Wreath


Barbara Windle

I purchased my wreath at Costco in November.  It is a fresh wreath and I admit I took the easy way out.  All I did was add the Red Tartan bow and hung it up.  I filled the window box with fresh cut branches and again added the Tartan bow.

After Christmas I noticed that the wreath still seemed fresh and supple. The needles were not dropping.  I couldn't throw it out, but, I was ready to put Christmas things away.  I wanted to transition my decor from Christmas to Winter.  I wanted something fresh, clean, and different.

We had a few mild days in early January this year.  I removed the bows and sprayed the wreath and branches in the window box with white spray paint.  I left the berries and pine cones on the wreath and sprayed them as well.

I found a leftover piece of canvas fabric and ripped two 8-inch strips to use a bows.

The whole project was finished in less than 20 minutes and I really like it.  I am hopeful that it will last a few more weeks.
