Is it weird that wreath-making is something I look forward to? I’ve been itching to make a new wreath for a while. I have a fall wreath, a spring/summer wreath, and I had an evergreen wreath (given to me, not made) that was up for Christmas. Well, Christmas is over, and after using the evergreen wreath for two Christmas seasons in a row (something you’re apparently not supposed to do with fresh evergreen??? It was kind of faded haha), it was time for a new wreath.
Also, I’m convinced my neighbors down the hall are trying to copy/one up my door decorating. That’s a post for another day, but I think by now we’ve all realized I get a little competitive about domestic things. Blame it on my total lack of interest in sports. So I had to make a new wreath that they wouldn’t be able to copy.
Boom. Winter peacock wreath.
I wanted something with a lot of white, silver, and glitter. Because those things are wintery to me, and this wreath will be up until I hang my spring/summer wreath. I was brainstorming via Pinterest and decided that I really liked a blue/white combo for winter. So I perused my current craft supplies, and I had a bunch of mini glittery ornaments. I picked out the blue and green ones and from there it was an easy leap to peacock. Easy leap for me, maybe no one else thinks blue + green = peacock!
I was so excited to make my wreath that I forgot to take pictures of the process (SORRY!!!), but the rest of the supplies came from Micheal’s craft store. I lucked out and a ton of the glittery things – including that awesome peacock bird and the feather – were on clearance.
Essentially, it’s one of those twig/grapevines wreath forms with a ton of white feathers inserted into the twigs, some silver ribbon wrapped around that, and some glittery silver floral pieces. I hot glued the floral pieces, the bird, and the small ornaments on.
Total cost of my wreath: Under $20.
Let’s take a closer look. I know you’re all dying to check out that bird.
And the feather on the side.
Dear neighbors, let’s see you try to copy this wreath.
