I had this wreath in the entry of the old house, but since we've moved it's just been sitting on a shelf in the garage. And a few months ago I saw the cutest monogram wreath idea on pinterest. Eventually the idea hit to reuse the wreath and turn it into something fun I can use during the times of the year when I don't need/want to put out something holiday/seasonal on the front door.
My front door is black and I'm in love with red so the first thing I did was spray paint the wreath red.
Then I scavenged the house for fun things to add to the wreath - like old Christmas ornaments that I painted then added some vinyl design to and covered with Poly to make them shiny. It worked surprisingly well, except for the larger diamond shape, which didn't want to conform to the round ornament so that one was discarded. I had already picked up a wooden letter C, which I painted with stripes on the sides then covered the front with patterned paper. It got a coat of poly on top of the modge podge as well, as it would be hanging outside and modge podge goes all sticky again when it gets wet (how did I discover that? silly me left some blocks outside drying overnight a few months back and it rained on them!)
