. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Our front door

Our front door

hello sign for front door

I shared this picture on instagram and a few of you asked about the wreath I made.  I LOVE our front door.  Painting it was the best decision.  It was kind of a pain, but cheap and completely worth it.  I love our front door and think it makes a huge difference in the look of the front of our house.  

My friend has a die cut machine and cut out the hello sign for me out of black vinyl.  I looked at a few tutorials on pinterest for the wreath and pretty much followed this one.  I had some jewelry wire I just used at the beginning and end of each burlap roll.  I used 2 1/2 rolls of burlap.  I bought those two little Christmas floral sticks and just stuck them into one of the loops and used wire to tie them at the top.  I thought it would take a long time, but probably took about an hour.

That O is driving me a little crazy and needs to be moved up a bit!

I think I'll keep this wreath up for a long time and just change out the floral part for the seasons! These would probably be a good Christmas gift to give someone too, and cost under $15 to make.

I'm so glad you posted this! I was looking for an easy DIY on how to make a burlap wreath for the holidays, but everything I found was so intricate! I will definitely be doing this on Sunday - thanks so much for sharing!

Is that just a red color? I love it. We've been talking about going red in the door department…

This is really awesome!
What was the color of the door before? And what was the door made out of?
I would love to do this but I have a huge lion knocker on my door. I suppose in time!
Good job on the DIY!

That is so fun. I love the hardware and the writing. I have see it before on a store, but never for a home. It is really cute and personal. I am also in love with the wreath. I have done a burlap wreath before but it was tightly wound around something. I have never seen it loose like this.
