Transitional Wreath Decoration for the Winter Months

After the holidays it's always nice to have something to put up once all the Christmas decorations are down. Today I'm repurposing a Christmas sign into a rustic winter wreath sign.

I began with an old Christmas sign that I'm using again by sanding off the lettering with a palm sander
The little bit of green still in the cracks didn't make a difference once the wood was stained.

I used a gel stain to paint on and wipe off the reclaimed wood, it's my favorite stain, I use it on everything. 

When the gel stain dried I used the Fresh Cut Flowers Stencil from Old Sign Stencils to stencil part of the stencil onto my board. 

I love that these stencils are versatile enough to be able to use small parts of the stencil for my projects.

You can see how I used this stencil again on this succulent planter.

I used a small length of buffalo checked ribbon to wrap around my wreath and over the top of the board. 

The wreath hangs from the ribbon and a hanger was added to the back for hanging.

This is the perfect transitional decoration for winter and it couldn't be easier to make. 

Changing out the wreath will make this decoration perfect for any season!
