Crayon Wreath, I was ready for a change on October 1st. Today I will to show you my new Halloween wreath and how I dressed my front door up with some Silhouette vinyl! Here's what my wreath looks like after some quick work:
I was short on time this week, so I used a coupon to pick up the wreath for 40% off at Michaels. The ribbon I had at home. Very Poe-esque, don't you think? I like the purple/orange/black combo.
Here's the door Before (plain old blah white), Recently (Crayon Wreath), and After (with vinyl):
I can't believe I didn't add the "Welcome" lettering before! The flourishes came with the Silhouette software, and I just used an existing font from my computer. Once I figured out how to cut something larger than the what the standard template supplied, the rest was easy!
If I have to keep the white front door, I like it a lot better all dressed up with some pretty vinyl lettering. It really makes a difference when you look at the house from the street! I'd like the wreath more with wider ribbon, but this is what I had on hand.
I feel like Edgar Allen Poe and his Raven would like my front door a lot...and so long as it doesn't it doesn't come "rapping, rapping at my chamber door" I am okay with it too.
Do you have a metal front door like I do?
Come back tomorrow and I'll show you how I hang my wreaths without one of those bulky wreath hangers!
