A Winter Kitchen Wreath

I thought I’d show you this winter wreath that I made for the kitchen. I’m calling it a winter wreath because I plan for it to stay up after Christmas.

It’s hanging on our chalkboard in the kitchen. To make the wreath, I spray painted an oval shaped grapevine wreath white.  Then I wrapped a shimmery aqua colored ribbon around the wreath.

Then I hot-glued 2 of the pine cones that I had painted a few weeks ago to the ribbon.  If you’d like to see how I did the pine cones,  you can read my post decorating pine cones.

Next I hung some of my Christmas cookie cutters on the wreath. I didn’t really attach them. I just hung them onto pieces of grapevine that were sticking out so when I get ready to use them in making cookies, I can just grab them off the wreath!

To finish off the wreath, I attached a bow made with black and white toile ribbon. I found the silky ribbon at Walmart, and it’s just perfect for our kitchen because I have black and white curtains hanging at the windows.

A few months ago, I had already tweaked the frame around the chalkboard by adding white and aqua paint. You see, I plan to add more aqua to the kitchen, and I’ve been gathering some aqua plates and other items to add later. We did get the new clock mounted above the chalkboard. You can’t see it very well, but it has an aqua edge around the burlap center.

I really like how the wreath turned out. The Christmas cookie cutters will be changed out for some others later so that the wreath can be used until spring.  I hope to show you more of our Christmas decorations in the kitchen soon.

    Jane, you are definitely the queen of wreaths. Your creativity is impressive. First of all, I love the grapevine wreath with pine cones but then you put it on the chalkboard. That’s fantastic. I can just imagine you will have messages there for Leo. Maybe a honey do list?
    Merry Christmas, Ginger

    Jane, I love that your wreath against the background of the chalkboard and that it can be enjoyed through the winter! Having the cookie cutters so easily accessible is a plus! :)

    Jane – I love your wreath! And what a great idea to make one that can be used all the way until the Spring. The pinecones are gorgeous and the black and white toile ribbin is to die for! Thank you so much for linking up to the Better Late Than Never Christmas Inspirations bloghop.

    The wreath looks pretty for the kitchen and goes well with your natural theme this year. the toile ribbon is a nice touch too. See you Christmas Eve. Jean

    I think leaving this wreath up is a brilliant idea. It is neutral and beautiful. I love your chalkboard! I have wanted one but honestly don’t know where I would hang it. Hope your Christmas prep is coming along. Mine is slow going but I’m sure I’ll get there at some point!
