Remade Winter Wreath


Here is an easy, elegant wreath idea I came up with combining two of my favorite things: repurposing and nature. I used a white thrift store scarf and some tiny pinecones attached to branches. 

I brushed the pinecones with some pale aqua paint to add some color. I hung the wreath with sheer ribbon also in pale aqua. I think this wreath is versatile enough to display for Christmas and all winter long. 


































A wreath too pretty to just hang on my outside door--it is hanging on my closet door in my living room so I can admire it inside. 

Next, I'll be showing you some colorful, handmade Christmas garland and ornaments. 

Thanks for visiting ReMadeSimple!

  2. Super creative and so pretty. It looks nice on the aqua door!! I'm so busy sewing gifts for Christmas that I haven't done any decorating yet! Can't wait to get my tree up. I made all paper ornaments this year!
