Paper Rosette Wreath

I love making paper rosettes, and I love making wreaths. So, I combined the two.

I heart it. My hubby does not. He thinks it's weird. And maybe it is, but I like it. It makes me happy looking at it, so it stays. 


Our house has two front doors, The main door, which opens to an entryway and then to the front door that actually lets you inside the home. (I'm sure it has a proper name, but I don't care that much to google it. If you know what it's called, please feel free to leave it in the comments for me. Thanks!)


This wreath is on the second front door, so I'm not worried about the elements ruining it.


 And those colors! I am loving those colors right now! And this wreath is totally changeable, so...if I do decide that it's weird, I can just change it to something my hubby will probably think even weirder!


What have you done with paper recently?

It's adorable! I've been trying to bring more 'light blues' into my house to cheer it up for Spring and I might just steal your idea. I've got a hook on the wall that needs something, LOL!
I'm not sure what the inner door is called, either, but maybe it's "vestibule door" or "main door" or..."inner door"? Who cares, it's decorated in a pretty way!
BTW, my husband leaves all the decorating to me, at least as far as the inside of the house. He does great keeping our property looking nice!

How pretty! I have no idea how to make much of anything out of paper, except maybe spit wads, but I don't think that counts.

Super cute. I love paper rosettes - mine have always held up so well! They make a really nice addition and accent to the wreath.

Ann @ makethebestofthings said...

Such a great combo of the crisp paper designs and the fuzzy natural moss! The blues against the browny green are eye catching!

I SUPER like this wreath! How did you do the flowers (rosettes) that are folded? I have seen those everywhere but don't know how to do them. THanks!

The Old Block House said...

Your flowers are adorable. When it comes to decorating or crafts, I just tell my bf to smile and nod, anything else may be hazardous to his health.

Claire said...

I love this, especially the placement of the flowers, I would have kept adding more and more and it would not have looked so good!

BTW I'm British and we would call the space between the two doors a porch, so then the door on the outside is a porch door and the door on the inside is the front door :)
