If you’re ready to break the rules of seasonal decorating or you dread putting up Thanksgiving décor only to take it back down for Christmas a few weeks later, we have the solution for you.
At Schlage, we know how small changes can make a big impact and that some home décor rules are meant to be broken. You don’t have to gut a kitchen to make it look amazing, your bedroom doors don’t have to be white if you prefer blue and your door knobs don’t have to be brass (or even knobs).
If you’re ready to break the rules of seasonal decorating or you dread putting up Thanksgiving décor only to take it back down for Christmas a few weeks later, we have the solution for you. Combine inspiration from from multiple crafting tutorials to create one project that’s uniquely you and simple to swap as the holidays change. Let us show you how with this basic pinecone wreath from Women’s Day.
1. Ribbon refresh
Changing the color of a wreath’s ribbon, flowers and fabrics is always a simple way to transition the look from season to season. It lets you reuse your decorations throughout the year, which is both simple and budget-friendly.
2. Bleached beauties
With this tutorial from ehow, you can have your pinecone wreath even if you’re into monochromatic design or want a neutral background to make other colors pop.
3. Glitter and glam
Not feeling the snow? Cover the pinecones with colorful glitter or just dust the tips with shine. Depending on your chosen color, your wreath could be perfect for any spring, fall or winter holiday. Or for any day!
4. Varied vegetation
Weave vegetation of other kinds among the pinecones for different shapes, textures and colors. Consider flowers, berries, cornstalks or fruit like apples or small pumpkins. In winter, try holly or evergreen branches.
5. Seasonal scents
Perfect for indoor wreaths, scented pinecones be a treat for all the senses. Dotal Anecdotes shows you how to use them to give your home that smell of cinnamon, but there’s no reason you couldn’t opt for fragrant flowers instead.
