Hello and happy Monday friends! Guess what time it is… it’s DIY Workshop time at The Home Depot! This Saturday I’ll be co-hosting the DIY Workshop in the Prattville, Alabama store. We’re decking the halls DIY-style, making this festive holiday wreath trio.
So besides listening to Christmas music, what are you guys doing this weekend? Do you want to kick off the holiday decorating by making this hanging wreath trio with me?
Here are the deets:
When: Saturday, November 21st
Where: The Home Depot Store #806
2710 Legends Parkway
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Here’s how I customized my Christmas wreath trio. I call this look “Rustic Cabin Christmas.”
We’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, so I decided to deck the dining room in festive red, green, and plaid. Hanging a trio of wreaths filled the space above our bar cabinet perfectly. I built that bar cabinet a few years ago, while I was 9 months pregnant with my son. In fact, I was on a Home Depot run for the final piece of plywood (for the back panel) just a few hours before my son was born! Crazy, right? I really love this piece and the (birth) story behind it.
The weather is finally cooling off here in Alabama so I’ve been cooking comfort food all week long: chili, pot roasts, beef stews… I just love this season. I decided to go the traditional route this year as opposed to last year’s modern black, white, gold, and glam Christmas.
Imagine you were holed up in a cabin on the side of a snowy mountain with your loved ones snuggled up close with a cup of hot cocoa (or two fingers of Kentucky bourbon, your choice) in front of a crackling fire… ahhh, pure heaven.
With this year’s decorations, I’m striving to invoke that warm, comfortable, cozy feeling.

All of the materials for this project can be purchased from the Ho-Ho-Home Depot (sorry, I couldn’t resist), except for the cardboard craft letters. I had those on-hand in my craft stash. I bought three plain wreaths and used spray snow to lightly flock the boughs. Then I hot-glued the pinecones and poinsettias on, tied a plaid ribbon around the base, then attached the three wreaths together with a fine-gauge wire. Easy as apple pie.
I hung the wreath trio on the mirror with 3M Command Hooks.
For this month’s DIY Workshops project, we’re doing something super fun. We’ve invited some of our blogger friends to participate in the holiday festivities! We’ve asked them to customize their hanging wreath trio and share it on their blogs. Check out how our friends decorated their wreaths:
Chic Little House / Live Pretty on a Penny / Décor Adventures / Don’t Disturb This Groove
C.R.A.F.T. / Balancing Home / A Pumpkin & A Princess / Tried & True / White House Black Shutters
Décor and the Dog / NewlyWoodwards / Boxy Colonial / Wills Casa
The House of Wood / Shades of Blue Interiors / Hertoolbelt / Build Basic / Making Home Base
That’s My Letter / Remodelando la Casa / The Friendly Home / Fix This Build That / My Altered State
How about you? When do you start decorating for Christmas? Are you the ‘Christmas-in-July’ kind of person or do you wait for Halloween and Thanksgiving to have their time in the sun before you deck the halls? I’m definitely in the “sooner is better” camp because it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
