White Pampas Grass Wreath- Budget Friendly Holiday Idea
The first holiday post of the season is always a little nostalgic. It reminds me of what’s to come and also what’s behind. Bittersweet in a a sense, especially now. The resounding reminder of our current situation is to be present, be mindful and to be resourceful. It’s the foundation of what this blog was built upon all those years ago when I barely had any money left over to buy magazines, clothes or home accessories for that matter. Somehow that message got lost along the way and I am happy to say it is very much alive and well here on this platform. Getting back to my roots I wanted to share this budget friendly DIY holiday wreath I made from Pampas Grass. I’m sharing it today as a part of an amazing group of bloggers with Seasons of Home. Thank you Ella Claire for hosting this uplifting event!
My inspiration for this wreath came from one I found online. It was a full wreath with more of a caramel pampas grass but it was a beauty and the price tag reflected it at $129.00. Don’t get me wrong I was tempted. No work, I order it and it shows up days later but then I thought, I can make that!
I bought the hoop at the craft store with my coupon for $10. I ordered the white pampas grass and still had plenty left over. You can either order less and save money or make another smaller one.
The faux eucalyptusandcedar are from Target. Normally I would use real but I wanted it to last a while.
I also made some fun abstract ornaments using left over house paint that I will share later in the week.
I love the texture of the pampas grass, it reminds me of feathers, perfect for the holidays.
The process was simple. I glued the pieces using a glue gun, added the greenery and leather ties at the top. You can find the video tutorial HERE.

Hello! Brooke from Nesting with Grace here. I have a confession, I am slightly obsessed with bookcases. I love to style them, just like Legos are to a little boy. I have had some practice over the years and learned a lot from working in a design store where we were always rearranging and putting out new product to replace sold items. I also used to do the managing of the designers in the showroom and styling a bookcase does not come natural to all designers. You are not alone if it is hard. Here are some examples and tips that I have learned over the years. Applying these tips will make you love your bookcase.

Hi friends! Today is the day, I am finally sharing the full reveal of my den with white walls!! The before and afters will blow you away, it really is amazing what paint can do. If you remember I was back and forth between another dark hue or going light in this room. After much debate and many paint samples later I decided white was best. I wanted the transition between the picture molding and the wall to be seamless. The color I selected was Pure White by Sherwin-Williams and I couldn’t be happier!!! It feels fresh and bright in here, it was just the change I was looking for.
