This is a lovely wreath Kelli, thank you for sharing. I'm currently pondering how to put together my Easter wreath ~ I'm not quite sure how to go about it yet, so I will wait for inspiration to strike!

The colors in your new wreath match the color of your door beautifully! The pine cones and satin ribbon are so pretty together.

Good luck this weekend! My decorations are down and I will be cleaning also:)

I'm looking forward to lighting a fire in the fireplace and snuggling up with some hot chocolate when I'm done.

No surprise- another big snow expected Friday:) Then -40 wind chills by Tuesday. Yikes!

This looks professionally done, Kelli! Very pretty, and a sweet homey touch! I love that you used brown for the ribbon. Making wreaths is one of my favorite things to do. I'll be featuring some step by step wreath making in future posts.

I've never seen anyone try to interpret winter into a wreath--good job! My Christmas decorations are packed away. December 31, so we have to think birthday party. That motivates us.

Your wreath is lovely - I am keeping my Christmas one up a little longer because I couldn't bear the place looking so bare after all the decorations came down - but your one is pretty enough to do all year round! A beautiful welcome for your door!

Lady Katherine said...

I love your winter wreath, I now need to pine cone hunting! lol I still have a lot of acorns in a basket, everytime, I walk buy the basket, I think of all your acorns.

This is a beautiful wreath! The satin ribbon really softens it.

Heather said...

your wreath looks great! sounds like it was pretty easy to do too which is always a plus in my book! things were crazy here today so i didn't get a chance to participate but i hope to be back on fridays with you next week!

Jodi said...

Kelli,

I love the wreath! I am a big fan of wreaths; however, I've never made one of my own. I actually have a wreath like the one you've made, but without the pinecones and ribbon. I might have to be a copycat! :)

rohanknitter said...

That looks lovely - what a great idea to glue the pinecones on!!!!!

Rambling Girl said...

Oh Kellie I love this! I am going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow for the first time...I am so excited. Since I live in such a small town I don't have access to places like that. I might have to pick a wreath up like this and try it. Lexi even says that is a pretty wreath to and wants one on her door. She is only 4 so guess she is getting into decor now. lol

Zebu said...

Kelli,

How lovely that wreath is! I love the wonderful bow; the color is perfect! You are very inspiring.

And, no, you are not the only one with decor still up. Most of mine is down but will finish the rest in the next day or so. Have a blessed weekend. :)

"Dove" said...

Is imitation really the sincerest form of flattery? Because I want one just like it! So cute.

Mrs. E. said...

Kelly, Thanks for hosting. This is fun and it looks like lots of others enjoy it too. I love your wreath. It looks so pretty on your door! Happy cleaning. I just finished tonight and it does feel good!
Heather

Barbara H. said...

That's lovely, Kelli.

I just found some floral stems I had been looking at last year, but thought were too expensive, on sale half price at Hobby Lobby this week -- I was so delighted! I didn't get them put together like I wanted to in a door decoration for today's S&T, but I wondered if they were too springy. I haven't decided whether to go ahead with them now as is to "think spring," or whether to go with something more wintry.

My open roads said...

I just love these golden brown colors! :)

Tammy Gary said...

What a wonderful wreath! I am so glad that Zaroga told me about you site! I have a great excuse Not to clean, LOL, got to work on the church scrapbook! I think I will go clean the bathroom in a little while though!

PEA said...

Such a beautiful wreath!! I love the colours...I always have tons of pinecones that fall off our trees in the backyard and now I know what to do with some of them:-) Hope you're having a wonderful weekend my friend...even if it is taking down Christmas decorations. lol xoxo

Lori said...

Your winter pinecone wreath is beautiful! It turned out great. You are very talented.
I've finally posted so you can come by when you get a chance.

Jackie said...

Absolutely stunning Kelli. I managed to get my Christmas decorations down last weekend, and now it is time to figure out some Valentines decorations.

God bless.

Jessica said...

The wreath is sweet. I wanted you to know that I found some incredible acorns at a local retailer and immediately thought of you. They wouldn't have survived the shipping process (or prices) or else I would have snapped them up to send to you.

Hope you were able to get the much needed deep clean done.

Christine said...

I love your wreath! It really looks nice on your door! I am still trying to get my Christmas things down as well. Maybe this next week...ugh...lol

Ali said...

What a gorgeous wreath. One of the few craft projects I can actually manage! And such an easy way to mark the changing of the seasons and special holidays.

Mimi's Rose Chenille Boutique said...

I would love to join Show and Tell Friday, but am a bit confused about the Mr. Linky part. I belong to Friday Flea Market and have Mr. Linky there, so would I add another Mr. Linky for this?

I love your blog, please let me know how to do this. Thanks and please visit my blog!
