Ever get in the mood to do a genuinely fast, genuinely easy DIY? And, bonus, it makes your kids happy? Awesome. Then this post is for you.
So, my kids noticed our turkey front-door thing still up (a week after Thanksgiving) and requested, strongly, a change to something Christmasy.
I searched through boxes stuffed with holiday decor, but I couldn't find anything suitable for the front door. (I did, however, find a sock that I'd been missing for the past year. Yay...?) The closest thing I could muster up was this tired old faded old nasty old wreath.
It wasn't great (understatement), but it would have to do. Because, y'know, we're looking for fast and easy here. And let's just throw in free, too.
Busted out my BFF spray paint. White. I was going to do some kind of ombre-gold action on the wreath, but come to find out my gold spray paint was all used up.
So I improvised. I found some simple red grosgrain ribbon and wrapped it around, kind of like peppermint. Because I for one love peppermint. Eating that stuff is like brushing your teeth, 'cept without the brushing. And if that's not a win-win, I don't know what is.
We had Scouts and ballet and dinner and an important Memory game with my 4-year-old all happening within about 30 minutes of each other. Didn't even have time to warm up the hot glue gun, so I pulled out the stapler. Because I'm classy like that.
Viola. A festive peppermint wreath, not a turkey, now adorns our front door.
Bring on the holidays, fruitcake and all. Me & my spray paint: We're officially ready.
Have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
