diy Christmas wreath : simple lit wreath

18 December 2012

a simple wreath idea that looks fresh, but is really fake underneath it all :)  I just took a $4 artificial lit wreath from clearance last year, and stuck in some real pine and cedar greenery here and there. The cord is hiding behind the burlap ribbon and goes up inside and around a nail in the door casing inside.

Wouldn’t it all look so much better with a fresh coat of snow??
