A Simple Winter Wreath

So, after making our Shanty Wreath Hangers we had to pair them with shanty wreaths as well!  Which brings us to my Simple Winter Wreath Tutorial!
Here’s how it started…
1 medium sized grapevine wreath at Hobby Lobby (1/2 off only:)…
spray painted with Rust-Oleum Metallic Spray Paint
Snowflakes are a favorite of mine (among many others) this season so I had to incorporate one some how.  I purchased this beauty at Hobby Lobby (1/2 off as well:)
I replaced the hanging string with a piece of 1 ply jute twine
and tied a knot at the top of the ornament.
Next, I pulled both ends of the twine around the under side of the top of the wreath and secured another knot with hot glue.
Next, a pretty bow secured with hot glue…
followed by a few white berries for the finish off!
And there you have it!
Such a simple way to celebrate the winter season!!!
