Now that we are in our forever home with it’s large front porch and loads of character, I have been adding to my outdoor Christmas decorations.
In 2008 I decided to try my hand at making a UGA wreath for our house. After Christmas in 2007, I had purchased the faux ‘frosted’ evergreen wreath and red berry picks on clearance at JoAnns. The letters were also from the craft store, painted with red craft paint. I found the Georgia ornaments at the beginning of the season in 2008 at Garden Ridge I believe.
The weather was not kind to my wreath at our first house, so I had to replace some of the berry picks in 2009. I also added the Hairy Dawg ornament that I received from a friend. I ended up liking the revised version better!
In 2014, we moved into our forever home which has a covered front porch that protects my wreaths from the weather. I replaced the bow with one made from black and white chevron ribbon with red velvet back that I found on Trendy Tree.
