Joyeux Noel Snowflake Wreath

 

I wanted to make a new wreath for our front door this year, and I saw in a home décor store a snowflake wreath that was perfect… almost.  The one in the store was all white snowflakes and I wanted to add something a little extra.  I decided to add some wood letters in a light blue metallic paint and some bells.  I chose to say Merry Christmas in French for something unique here in Western Canada, it also goes with our home as we pick up décor items when we travel and like the eclectic look.  You could easily translate the wreath to spell any Christmas greeting or message.
