Whew! It was a relief to get my Christmas stuff put away last week. The house seems a bit more spacious and, well, a little less cluttered.
This time of year always makes me want to purge my home of unnecessary clutter and organize even more. In fact, I just told someone the other day that I truly felt like I could rid our home of half of our belongings and we would still have plenty. Anybody else with me on that one?
Anyway, today I thought I’d share what I just hung on my front door now that Christmas is behind us.
I actually made this well over a year, maybe a year and a half ago. I think I even put one photo of it on a blog post, but didn’t feature it at all.
As you can see, I took a simple grapevine wreath and chose a color palette of black, white, gray, and yellow. Then I made up a bunch of flowers and rosettes using various fabrics that had these colors. I ended up with burlap, black and white gingham, several patterned cotton fabrics, and a gray cashmere thrifted sweater. For the hanger portion I took a length of the gingham and sewed it into a basic long rectangle, then added a bit of twine to the top.
I’m not sure if this is totally wintry, or seasonable, but I like it nonetheless.
