Quick, inexpensive crafts really can have a big impact on your decor. For years I’ve been seeing Pinterest posts where people have used painted letters and a small grapevine wreath to spell out Noel as part of their holiday decorations. I’ve always loved the look, so I decided to give it a try this year.
I simply purchased unpainted letters and a small grapevine wreath at Michaels, along with paint colors that go well with my living room color scheme–dark brown, tuscan red, and white for contrast. A couple coats of paint and I was finished. Very fast, very easy, and cheap (I spent less than $10 on supplies).
I fell in love with the way they look on my mantle. The family said they like it, but none of them get as excited as I do when decorations come together well. This is why I have friends who do share my excitement. And a blog!
