Christmas 2012 ~ Front Door Wreath

Welcome to Christmas 2012 On Sutton Place! This year it’s all about neutral and natural…with a pop of red thrown in for good measure.

As with any season around here it all starts with the front door. I’ve kept it simple.

Fresh cedar garland.

A grapevine wreath topped with more fresh cedar and my grain sack bow.

White lights on the garland and topiaries finish it all off.

I gave you a peak of the grain sack bow with some other front door inspiration. As corny as it sounds, I really have no words to express how much I love this.

Seriously.

If only I had been the one to come up with the idea…but all the credit goes to the lovely ladies at Dreamy Whites. Maria and her sister design such special things.

My bow is different from the one on their blog. It’s actually in 3 pieces. I’ll be back very soon to show you how. No sewing skills required…promise.

Don’t forget about our Homespun Christmas Link Parties that start this weekend. Get your mantels and vignettes posted in time for Kim’s party on Sunday, December 2nd. Next up is Anita at Cedar Hill Ranch. She’s hosting anything handmade on Friday, December 7th.

I’m next with front doors and wreaths on Sunday, December 9th and we’re wrapping things up at StoneGable on Friday, December 14th with Recipes and Tablescapes. Couldn’t think of anyone better than Yvonne to host our finale.

The linkies will go live at 8 p.m. the night before. We’d love to see you all there!
