Last Friday, I had the privilege of sharing my blue ornament ideas (hello, icy blue pinecones!) along with several other very talented bloggers in the Blue Christmas Blog Hop. Today, I want to share with you a VERY simple way to add blue (or any non-traditional color, for that matter) to your Christmas decor with this wreath:
It’s not rocket science, and there’s certainly no need for a tutorial…
I simply added some of those beautiful, glittery pinecones to an old wreath and hung it in front of an old window frame in my living room. Honestly, I’m not much of a wreath person (gasp! Is that somehow sacrilegious in the blog world?!?), but I really like this here.
I haven’t used a wreath on my door in years because we have a double front door, but this spot may lay claim to my very few wreaths from time to time. I think part of what I love is that it blends with the decor in the room. I chose the blue glitter because it was the closest I could find to the gray blue hues already in my living room, and I found ribbon that almost matched.
This way, the blue blends in with the room and allows the Christmas decor to merely complement what’s already there. You could do this with any accent color in your home.
I also love the juxtaposition of the glitzy glitter with the rustic old window frame. The contrast is probably my favorite part.
What do you think? What non-traditional colors could you add to your Christmas decor in this way? Don’t forget to visit the other gals in the Blue Christmas Blog Hop for more great ideas!
