Upcycled Christmas Wreath

Upcylced Christmas Wreath for Rustic Lodge Decor athomewiththebarker.com

Hey there sweet friends…I know, I know, it’s been 2 weeks since I lasted posted. I didn’t plan on taking a blog break it just worked out that way. Funny thing though, I didn’t take a break from doing projects. So get ready, lots of new home decor/DIY post after Christmas.

Starting today though, it’s time for a little Christmas. I’m joining some sweet blogging friends for a Welcome Home Christmas Tour hosted by Robin from All Things Heart and Home. We are sharing how we welcome friends and family into our homes during the holiday season.


As with many things around my house, repurposing and reusing are at the top of that list. The same goes for this years Upcycled Christmas Wreath. Nothing says welcome to our home like a front door wreath. I wanted to make my Christmas decor to look great as always but without spending lots of money. All I bought this year was new gift wrap, ribbon for the tree and these little skis from Target. I wanted to go with a natural rustic lodge feeling and I think I have achieved it with this upcycled christmas wreath.

I loved last years wreath so much but I wanted to use the deer head ornaments on my tree. That left me with my basic green wreath, a plaid bow and some berries.

Here was my wreath last Christmas…

I posted it again recently on my Instagram and it was still a BIG hit. I found the white deer at Walmart last year. Although they had the deer this year they were gold or silver instead of white.

I grabbed a set of the skis from Target because they were too cute to pass up and they were only $3. They came with the small hooks on the back to hang them on the wall so that was perfect for me to tie twine to and attach to the wreath.

The plaid bow was made from a table cloth…YAY! See it here plus what else I made with it last year.
