March Door

Hello Friends!
I am SO glad to be back in time share a few of our St. Patrick's Day Decorations!

Our Front door got a much needed infusion of Green and Orange!
I am super pleased with how it turned out, even if I don't regularly decorate with these colors.
I make a HUGE exception this time of year!

I was inspired by Paisley Passions door decor

I love the wreath within a frame idea!
In fact I have that same frame she used.
But I wanted to go in a little bit different direction.

I went to Hobby Lobby and in the clearance isle I found a little gem!
Sorry, I didn't take photos of it before I crafted it all together.
But I am sure it was in the clearance area because it was inadvertently distressed after its staining.
But this worked REALLY well for what I wanted.

So, I took some foam core board and cut out a circle ring and added my flowers on about a third of the ring
Then I wrapped lots of different green and orange ribbons around the rest of it.
Then I hung it inside the frame. 

Here is the final product!

And one inside, without the glare...

So, here is the question I ask you all:
Does this frame need to be white-washed  and distressed?
Or Maybe sheer white added?
Antique white or cream?
What would you do?

  1. I really like it :) How adorable with all the flowers! I would def get some white on that bad boy! I like wood and all but the white distressed look would look fab! I am a Heirloom Satin White kinda girl myself but I am sure you will find the perfect shade!

  2. That's tough. Where you have it the frame is perfecto. But it would also look amazing white washed. Either way I can't tell you how much I love the greens and oranges!

  3. such a cute spring wreath...i like the darker frame, but i agree with FF..white washed would look nice too. nice to have options, isn't it!

  4. I think I am going against the masses here and saying to leave it alone. I like the wood with the colors in the wreath. Either way....great job!!

  5. Allie, I love this color combo! So fresh! :)

  6. that ide was awesome.are those fresh flowers?

  7. So pretty - the colors jump right out (in a good way) and scream Spring is coming.

  8. I love how Springy this looks! I think paiting the frame white would look even more fresh!!

  9. Totally love it! It's got me thinking about what I can do with the same ideas only using some red white & blue for the summer... :) Thanks for sharing!

  10. I love the flowers, I grabbed a few stems of those at Walmart and then priced checked them---they were $13 a piece, needless to say they went back into the bin!

  11. Love the wreath and the colors are so cheery!!! Happy St. Patty's Day!

  12. Such fun and so colourful for spring.
