I am definitely one of those people that hates to throw things away so even when things don’t look fresh & new, I try to find ways to spruce it up. I look for ways to re-invent it so I can still display it in my home.
Take this wreath, for example. It was a cute little grapevine wreath filled with pine cones. I left it outdoors all season last year and maybe that’s why it lost a number of pine cones? Anyway, I could have easily thrown it out in the condition it was in…
But then I remembered that I have some vase filler that’s rustic and brown and kinda reminiscent of those pine cones.
I decided to use hot glue to attach some of these rustic grapevine balls to the wreath (in the bare spots). There was one more bare spot so I decided to fill it with a small Christmas house & tree. Yes, this is looking better for sure! I’m glad I never threw it out! There’s a serious satisfaction about sprucing up something one would normally throw away.
Here it is hanging on our fence door. Yes, I love the way it looks! No, I didn’t learn my lesson about leaving this wreath exposed to the elements all year long.
I love that I was able to re-invent this wreath and make it pretty again. Have you ever done something similar with your decor?
