Pottery Barn Inspired... Give a little thanks wreath

I saw this wreath in the Thanksgiving Pottery Barn catalog that I wanted to replicate.  

In the upper left hand corner... Isn't it gorgeous?

The wreath reflects a lot of what's big at Pottery Barn this season - ribbon, words, and a very organic feel, which I love this time of year.  When everything living goes dormant it's nice to bring out the beauty in the browns that are left behind.  So I adore dried berries and twigs and things of that nature that can be spruced up for the holidays!

So this is how my wreath turned out.

I love it.  Although, I need to find a better paint pen.  Mine didn't  bleed, but there's a residue around my letters from the paint?  Which I'm hoping just needs to dry out.  We'll see.

I used a twine vine for my wreath.  You know how it comes all rolled up in the package?  Well, I left it that way.  Kind of a different look for a wreath.  And the rest is simple, I just wove my ribbons in and out, in and out.  Tucked the ribbon in that I had written on, tied on a raffia bow, and I was done.  Lovely, don't you think?

Don't forget to enter the CSN giveaway here!!!  It closes at midnight EST on Friday!!!

It turned out so beautiful! Putting a star on this post so I can remember to copy it when I have a chance.

Also, every time you show your front door I am insanely jealous...I love it. It wouldn't work on my house, even if I wanted it to, but I sure like looking at yours!

Thanks guys, I do love my door. A few months after we moved in it became an "upgrade" item... I was so happy we'd gotten it as a standard feature.
