A Wreath on a Chalkboard

If you happened to get around to making one of those Easiest Fresh Greenery Christmas Wreaths that I was talking about the other day, I've got a fun idea for you about where to hang it.



First of all, I invested another 2 minutes of my time and made another one of these wreaths out of this other grapevine wreath that I keep using over and over again. This one already had the burlap rosettes stuck on it, so I just went with it.


I must say, I'm quite fond of this little arrangement we have going on here. It's pretty striking and totally simple.


If you were artsier than I, you could do a whole elaborate drawing around the wreath and then have the wreath as the 3-D pop-out focal point. If you're chalkedly challenged like myself, the one word approach works just fine too.


Joy. Yup. That's definitely what an easy peasy, 2 minute Christmas chalkboard brings to me!

If you like my little burlap rosettes, you'll love One Project Closer's tutorial on how to make a rolled fabric flower. They have just about every kind of fabric flower you could want over there! Check it out and make your own wreath on a chalkboard!

I'll be linking this one up to Kim's Mantel and Vignette Party!

I just love that wreath Courtenay, and I'm still super jealous of that chalkboard. I just went out and bought chalkboard paint last week so now I just need to figure out what to paint and where to put it!

This is really sweet and a lovely fresh country idea! I also like your white dishes with the greenery in them. Your chalkboard is super in the old frame. You are very creative! Enjoy the week. Pamela
