I was challenged by Turtle Mat to create a Christmas wreath and as you can see I took on the challenge – because I love challenges AND I love Christmas! Furthermore, I love minimalism. Oh dear, now it’s getting complicated. I haven’t talked that much about minimalism but as you can see in my sidebar where I reveal what I’m currently reading my interest in minimalism increases. There is so much to learn and there are two sides of minimalism: design and lifestyle. This post is not about minimalism though but I will get back to you on this.
I mentioned minimalism because I wanted to create a minimalist Christmas wreath. I was sent the copper ring and a few more decoration items as well as an Amazon voucher to complete the list. I love copper – yes, another thing I love – and I definitely wanted to make sure that this can be seen. So I only took a few twigs from our Christmas tree and used them for the wreath. Because I had some copper wire at home I used that instead of a hot clue pistol which was sent to me, too.
I like it simple and fast therefore it took me just 15 minutes to make this minimalist Christmas wreath. You can see the snowflake there as an extra because that’s the hook I had before on my door. When I added the new wreath I thought it actually looks very pretty together. What do you think?
As you can see my entrance door is read. That’s perfect for the green twigs but I think I had to get used to the copper on red. The more I look at it the more I fall in love with it though. It’s great to have something more unusual and not to follow the rules all the time.
If you think it’s too late to create a Christmas wreath you’re wrong. Apart from that it’s never to late for anything follow my example and keep it minimalist. Also, have a look at what you have at home. We all have some leftovers from last Christmas somewhere.
Today is the 1st of December and for me Christmas officially started. I can’t wait to share the Christmas happiness with you over the next week.
Have you already prepared for Christmas?
