How to Create a Repurposed Christmas Door Bouquet

Sometimes it's necessary to repurpose a 
repurposed project.

A few years ago I repurposed a metal wall pocket I found in the thrift store. You can read all about it here.

For whatever reason it didn't sell. I had it around for a long time and thought it was great but I think the problem is that Route 66 means nothing to those of us on Long Island. 

So I had 2 choices, to return my repurposed project to the thrift store in it's new and improved condition or to repurpose it again. And I did.

I used one of the newest Fusion Mineral Paint colors called Cranberry to paint on this metal pocket. 

Perfect for the holidays!

Using my Silhouette machine I cut out the words Be Merry in silver vinyl and attached it to the metal pocket.

I added faux greens and a plaid bow and my repurposed project has a new look for the holidays.

I think I might hang on to this one... the vinyl can be removed and the greenery replaced so the wall pocket can be used another day. Fill it with flowers and hearts for Valentine's day maybe? 

It looks pretty good on my one coat painted front door too!
