I started this little project of making door wreaths last year after admiring the gorgeous creations in America. The idea isn't new to them but one we only seem to uphold around Christmas. 
They have houses with verandas or enclosed front doors giving protection from the weather to their wreathes, whereas, most of us cannot admit to that luxury. I certainly can't and unfortunately, my front door faces south west and therefore is susceptible to the rain and wind. We all know how much of that we have endured these past weeks.
With that in mind, my wreaths have to be weather proof or as near as I can make them.
So, this is my first wreath of 2016 - winter.
I really wanted some 'snowball' bush flowers, but not being able to find any I settled for plastic gypsophyllia. The greenery is plastic too. I found 3 pine cones in my stash and sourced the pale willow wreath from Home Sense. 
Despite hanging on a white door, it actually stands out and I'm very happy with it.

And you should be happy with it too Joanne. It's a beauty and what a great idea to use plastic plants to beat the weather. Very sneaky! Barbxx
