After another recent visit to Otten Bros., a landscape and garden center in Orono, I picked up an oval wreath, designed exclusively by Sue Whitney of JUNKMARKET Style for Otten Bros. With some added clock parts, I hope it brings a "junky" welcome to my front door.
I started with this Sue inspired and designed wreath made in an oval shape. Love that! And the mix of greenery was stunning!
Some clock parts from Sue (via Kathy Stanz of Sylvia's Vintage Daughter), would be just what the clock doctor ordered for this wreath. The clocks are a great way to remember to take time for what really matters this Christmas season.
I think this tree wrap gauze will be the perfect bow. I love the natural feel of it and plan on incorporating more nature in my Christmas decorations this year. Thanks to Sue for the idea via her Home for the Holidays class.
The clocks and parts are pretty darn heavy so some good wire would be in order. I twisted them around part of the clock to help keep it in place.
As it's hanging on the front door, and my daughter has a tendancy of slamming it...oops, I made sure the wire was wrapped good and tight.
Some pieces, like this clock face, were light enough that a good hot glue sufficed.
A little bit of this, and a little bit of that in clock parts were a perfect mix.
And here we have "Big" Ben.
And then there's "Baby" Ben.
I'm not very good at "ribbons" (to say the least). And with a little trial, and a lot of error, I finally came up with something I thought worked. I felt it needed more than just the white ribbon, so I scrounged around and found the chubby rope and large key, along with the "Home" tag.
Welcome to my home! Now to get the rest of the Christmas decorations up! Got to run.....
