I'm clearly NaBloPoMo'd out.Any suggestions on how to prettify these wreaths without going overboard?
around the house,
they look great as they are but if you need to do something I suggest some gold babbles or red if you can get something like the doors...
They are beautiful, but you could add a ribbon.
Just add some red or white berries by tucking the sprigs into the greenery. That would be really pretty, and keep the natural feel of the wreaths. Love the pinecones!
I was thinking along the same lines as joyful abode--red berries--the fake ones would be okay as long as they're just berries--no leaves! They'll really pop since you have a red door. You could use red wooden beads instead of berries.I bought ribbon yeaterday at TJ Maxx that would look perfect--creamy background with pinecones printed on it. I'm planning to make wreaths like yours!
Gold bows!I love your red doors!
I think I'd add a black bow or white and black patterned bow. I like the red berry idea too. I wouldn't do a red bow though with the door.
With the color of the doors and house, I would suggest simple tartan plaid bows tied either at the top or (my favorite) the bottom of each wreath.
What a beautiful door! I also think a black and white or a tartan plaid bow tied on the bottom would look fantastic.
a small white bow and white, simple snowflakes will look adorable and are surely not "too much", but also not too understated. love those doors! wish i had those myself :)
i think a wide satin ribbon, looped under the top and up over the top of your door - in a chocolate brown or chartreuse that will play nicely with the doors and your house.
Something red.You have a beautiful entry.
I was thinking of the red holly berries, they would definitely add to the wreath.
I actually like the simple elegance of these the way they are. Subtle and very pretty against the red doors.Happy holidays!Lisahttp://lisatutmanoglesby.typepad.com/my_weblog/
If you don't mind it taking a while, string some cranberries. I *just* saw this by Guru Martha two minutes before I read your door post...http://preview.tinyurl.com/2gydg5That's the how-to for it. :)
I *heart* your front doors. just beautiful!
