I've seen so many cute ideas for door decorations. I love the look of a couple's initials hanging on the doors:
I may still incorporate these somehow, but at least for the church doors, I decided to go with something different. I also love the look of wreaths, but although gorgeous, wreaths like this just didn't feel like they fit with the feel of the rest of our wedding decor:
If you've been following my blog for long, you've realized I love ribbon and tulle. The possibilities of projects are endless! Coincidentally, I found wreaths made with ribbon and wreaths made with tulle.
I think this ribbon wreath is so cute:
I'd still love to make it, but I think I'm kind of running out of doors!
I ended up making this tulle wreath instead:
(Actually for Halloween)
I used the following supplies:
2 foam wreaths I found at Dollar Tree
6 in. wide black tulle on a spool (found on clearance after Halloween)
Sissors to cut tulle into ~9" pieces
Satin ribbon (not pictured)
I just tied the tulle in a double knot around the wreath:
And eventually ended up with this:
After awhile I ended up just eyeballing the length of the pieces, so after it was finished I trimmed some of them so that they were all pretty even. I realized about half way through that I could spread them out more and use less tulle, so I'm not sure exactly how much it requires. I used 2 whole spools and then a little bit of a 3rd one, but I probably could've gotten away with using less. I love how it turned out, and I love that it incorporates the tulle that we're using other places (like in both of the centerpieces).
I thought it needed a little more color, so I added a bow using a lighter pink ribbon:
I won't post a tutorial, because kmattso at Happily After All posted a great one not too long ago. If you need any help making bows, refer to her tutorial! I think the bows add a needed pop of color.
I still need to make the 2nd one - I think it'll look great with one on each of the church doors:
Are you going to incorporate wreaths into your decor? Or did you take another route?
