3 in 1: Featured, Guest, Wreath

Actually it's a Feature, a Guest appearance and a new Wreath.  ;-)

I am once again honored to be featured, this time over at Somewhat Simple!  My Got Gifts? idea of tile coasters was featured on Stephanie's Strut your Stuff - Holiday Cards and Gifts post.    She is having 5 days of Holiday strutin' going on over on her blog.  Plus there are tons of holiday idea link parties.  So be sure and check out all the goodies.

Today is December 1st and the 1st of Noel's 12 Days of Christmas series at ReDeemed.  I am writing a guest post on Friday, December 4th, for Four Calling Birds. Noel kicked off the 12 Days today with a post and a giveaway, so be sure to check back each day to see what is in store!

After I put my tree up Saturday, I decided to make a wreath for the door.  I had purchased a green foam small floral wreath at the Dollar Tree.  Found some old plain garland in the Christmas Storage bins and wrapped it around the wreath.  Then I used some scrap material cut in strips to add a touch of color.  It was still missing, hummm...Pine cones!  Ya know I got PLENTY of those after going pickin' . So I better make good use of them on tons of projects.

Another photo just in case you missed it (read about that adventure HERE) and wasn't sure what I meant.  I hot glued a few pine cones together, wrapped some jute between them and tied them to the wreath.

My front door will not completely shut if I use a pretty wreath hanger.  So I used a bit of leftover burlap.  It adds another layer of texture and color against my red door.  Simple and it costs me one whole dollar for the floral form.  Like I said, it doesn't have to cost a pretty penny to SHINE like one!


  1. Love it! And I love your 4th day's post (it's good to be "editor-in-chief" and get the advance copy!) I know everyone else will too!

  2. Really cute, and I never thought of using garland glued onto a form. Great for people who have lots of leftover stuff the won't be using anytime soon.

  3. LOVE the wreath and am going to try it! Thanks for the inspiration, Sherri!!


  4. Pretty neat that you picked the pinecones yourself. Your wreath is beautiful!...Christine

  5. So cute. Love the wreath, but that picture of you picking the pine cones -- now THAT is impressive!

  6. Very pretty!

    I gather pine cones in September, just after the squirrels have knocked them down, but your tractor method is even better!

    Have a beautiful day!

  7. Sherri,
    That turned out really cute! As I have said before, I love things that use pine cones!

    Thanks for linking it up!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

    I am cracking up b/c we have such similar tastes! I hung wreaths all around my home with a simple burlap strip and it kinda looks like pine cones threw up in my house...but I LOVE IT! It's cheap but it looks so cozy and homey.

    I love your cheap decorating ideas. You're my kinda gal! :)

  9. That wreath looks great against your red door!! i love the burlap ribbon it's hung by. :)

  10. It came out great. I love the touch of gingham. It looks so sweet with the red door.

  11. I *LOVE* the wreath! :o)
    I just posted a question on my blog. Can you help me? Thanks! Trish
