Happy New Year!


Okay…maybe I’m a wee bit early.  But only 25 hours early!

Remember my Joy Wreath hanging over the sideboard?  I thought it would be fun to quickly and easily transform it into a New Year’s Wreath.

After removing the vintage balls and Joy and other nativity words, I added in some semi-blingy woodland picks I had in my stash.

I got out that Silhouette machine which I have yet to master and cut out the Happy – New – Year – 2013 in some gold cardstock I also had in my stash.

The only expense was a package of paper coronet horns from Dollar Tree.  The pack contained 2 gold and 1 silver and 3 other assorted colors.  I took some gold/silver mylar “tissue” paper and wrapped two of the colored horns and inserted all five into the pine greens.  It’s that little bit of extra New Year’s bling to tie it all together.

The Happy New Year words are just set on top of the faux greens.  I tried to catch them with the little tendrils of the picks and the needles of the pine.  It’s staying up so it works.  As long as my cat Poppy doesn’t decide that the sideboard is a race track now that I’ve taken down the nativity.

So there you have it.  A super easy New Year’s Wreath.  One you can still do for tonight’s party or tomorrow’s brunch.

I put together the wreath to complete the New Year’s table setting that I will show you in detail tomorrow.  Since, I know you can’t wait…I’ll give you just a little glimpse.

  1. Love this! I’ve never thought about decorating for New Years, but that could make it more exciting, especially next year when we may even be entertaining more than just our wee family.

    • Thanks Jen!! Generally I do a major take down on New Year’s Day but I wanted to change things up this year. And since we have only lived in this area/house for a a little over a year, it’s easy to change tradition. 😀
      Wishing you and yours a blessed and joyous New Year!

  2. Ohhhhhh……how pretty is that?! Amazing what just a bit here and there can create when there’s a warm, creative heart involved.
    Ya done GOOD! And here’s hoping the kitty doesn’t undo it. 😉

    Joyous New Year to you and yours, Diane.
    Ring it in with abundant joy!

    • We made it through New Year’s….we’re in the clear now. Good thing…she’s got quite the hook on that little tail of hers! LOL!

  3. You are so sweet, Mel!!! My heart is truly warmed.

    Wishing you the most extraordinary New Year!!

  4. Cute! Cute! Cute!! Great job Diane!! I still need to work on my Silhouette skills too! I think that may go on my resolutions list! 🙂 Happy New Year!! ~ Jennifer

    • You and me both Jennifer!! Everyone (who again is everyone?) makes it seem so easy….but for someone who can usually figure things out, I’ve had too many glitches like cutting the plastic mat. Ugh. I think it may be a Silhouette update issue. Double Ugh.

  5. What a cool idea and so pretty! I’m not the best decorator so I don’t bother but I love to see what my sister cooks up for her house 🙂

    • Thanks Mindy! My skills came with lots of practice. Don’t give up and say you’re not the best. Enjoy trying you hand at making your little corner of the world beautiful!
      Happy New Year!
