Okay, please don’t kill me, but I’m going to start talking about Christmas today. In the blogging world we’re always a month or two ahead. I’m starting early with the hope I will be able to inspire you with ideas that you can actually use this holiday season. Sound good? (This is also a warning that there will be a Christmas tree showing up on IBC fairly soon.)
Anyway, as I mentioned in a previous post, about a month ago my friends at CB2 asked if I would be interested in styling their new Peace Wreath from the Novogratz collection. Giant grapevine peace sign wreaths typically aren’t my thing, but I thought this piece had some great potential. Plus, I’m always up for a challenge, so I figured why not!
Inspired by my Instamas tree from last year, I decided a few small photos and some colorful lights would bring this wreath to life! I ordered these multicolor LED lights from Target. One strand was the perfect length. I carefully wrapped them around the wreath.
I used Social Print Studio (who I’ve happily relied on in the past) to print the photos from my Instagram feed. For this project, I ordered a set of their Mini Squares.
Using some bulldog clips, I attached the pictures to the wreath. It’s seriously that easy.
While its “permanent” home is yet to be determined, in the interim my colorful new wreath is hanging on my turquoise fireplace wall.
It looks totally cute, right? I typically don’t like LED lights, but in this particular application, I think they are perfect.They keep things modern.
I also love that it’s super personal. It’s not just a decoration on the wall, it has meaning and purpose. It’s also a fun thing for friends and family to check out when they are visiting.
In addition, I like the fact that nothing is permanently attached so I can change this wreath up as much as I want. And since I’m always moving things around, that is ideal.
With 49 days left until Christmas, I’m glad to be getting a head start this year. What do you think of my Instamas wreath?
CB2 was kind enough to provide this wreath for me to style. However, this post was not compensated. As always the thoughts, opinions, and ideas are my own.
