In the hustle and bustle of the season, It’s easy to get wrapped up in it all. Before we know it it’s over and well, we’re all exhausted! For us here at Kelly Moore it’s about keeping things simple so we all have time for the things that really matter. And so, we’d like to give you the Art of a Simple Season. In the next weeks, I’ll be sharing easy tips, DIY ideas, recipes ways to create & enjoy the beauty of the simpler things.
As much as I love the holidays, I've never been one to fully commit to decorating my entire house with the Christmas season. It's probably because I'm a little bit of a procrastinator, so by the time I'm feeling festive, it's time for New Year's.
However, I do love a little something here and there, and I love twinkling lights.
To keep things simple, we decided to make a simple DIY "cut it out of your yard" wreath because it's cheap, it's quick, and it probably looks better than anything you would have bought in the store.
A few tips while foraging for your foliage...
- Look for Evergreens like Pine, Cypress, and Cedar. They should last through the holiday season.
- Anything you see in the wild that you think would look nice, go for it! I had berries growing right behind my house and did not even know it! Just stay away from the poison ivy!!
- For the base of your wreath, you can purchase a grape vine wreath at most local stores.
- You can use floral wire to wire in your greenery, but since our wreath will be inside, we just stuck the greens right in the wreath itself.
