My up-cycled berry wreath tutorial

I have had my red berry wreath for nearly ten years, for the past several years it has stayed buried away in a box of Christmas decorations. I never had the heart to throw it out or give it away, there is something I love about it, but the red just hasn't fit with any of my Christmas colour palettes, ever! I originally bought it to hang on my front door when we lived in a 1920's flat, which kind of suited the ornate front door. This year I decided I needed to change it or get rid. So I spray painted it and added a pretty dusky rose bow. Now I love it more than ever! Here's how I did it...

Satin ribbon in dusky rose pink

Have a sweet day!

    I have hung mine on the wall using a Command™ Clear Small Hook, "Forget about nails, screws and tacks, Command™ Clear Hooks are fast and easy to hang! The revolutionary Command™ Clear Adhesive Strip holds strongly on a variety of surfaces, including paint, wood, tile and more. Yet, removes cleanly - no holes, marks, or sticky residue.
