Front-door wreath


Most readers know that I've had a grapevine wreath wound with ivy on our front door for a long, long time and just change it out seasonally.  A few years ago I added a little chalkboard to the center,  and change its message for various holidays.

Back in March, I changed the chalkboard message to  "Hope in God" and added some forsythia to the wreath.  In summer I kept the message the same and added some daisies and American flags; in fall, some red leaves and yellow mums in addition to the flags.  I've kept the same chalkboard message all of these months since it is really the most important message I can put there.

A few weeks ago I augmented the silk ivy with some pine and fir sprigs from around our yard.  I added some faux red berries and stuck in a couple of gold snowflakes, keeping some American flags in place as well.  It's a little quirky I guess, but a look I really like.

And "Hope in God" is still the message.  He is in control!


  1. Love your wreath! And the message it contains is definitely needed in this time.

  2. Yes, it surely is! I seriously can't think of any better message to greet those who come to our front door.
