A Wreath for 'Winter' on my front door!

After taking down the glittery, gold, Christmas Bow from my front door....I could not for the life of me,  remember what I replaced it with last winter!!  Too soon for my Cherry Blossom Spring wreath!!! 

  So....I headed over to Michael's  Craft Store, with the gift card I'd received for Christmas!   I purchased a new glue gun, a straw wreath and a roll of Jute Ribbon.  I ended up with this ruffled wreath!!!

Of course I didn't take photos of the process....but it was quite easy.  Simply find the center thread (string) of the jute ribbon and pull till it gathered, then hot glued it to the straw wreath I had wrapped in the jute beforehand.  I made a few rosettes out of natural colored burlap and dark brown to add a little something to it!

Of course it's been cloudy and rainy ever since!  (Wintery).   And it's pretty durable!  Makes me smile! :)
