Wreath Rehab

With my new house number urns dry and ready to plant, I thought a coordinating pop of color for the front door was in order. The pots were so sleek though that I didn't want to ruin the clean look with some fussy over-powering wreath; I have tons of those in storage from the 80's and 90's, don't you?

And that gave me an idea.

I went to my stash and pulled out a 24" grapevine circle then yanked all the sunflowers and bows off of it. There was plenty of Apple Green spray paint left over (I told you to get used to it). From there it was a matter of laying the wreath on my trusty Painting Picnic Table, spraying one side liberally (you will not need to worry about drips on this one guys!), flipping after 15 minutes, and spraying the second side. I held it up to check for anywhere I may have missed and made sure it was evenly coated in a luscious shade of green.

Here's the finished product! Simple, and my favorite price: basically free. I have a couple more grapevine circles that I keep eyeing; what would you think of silver for Hanukkah or Christmas?

I'll show you how it all looks together soon when I give the porch its Pretty in Paint finishing touches. Stay tuned!
