Wrath of Khan? Anyone...?
In a domino sort of events, after last Christmas, I ended up with a wreath hanger but no wreath.
A wreath had always been missing from my festive decorations, but I didn't really think twice about it until wreath hooks were like 70% off after Christmas. My sister talked me into buying one, telling me that she would give me her old wreath.
Well, about two months ago, there was a series of unfortunate event that left her wreath beaten and eaten by several different types of animals (it really is quite a long and convoluted story). All of this, of course, before the wreath had made its way into my hands. She still gave me the wreath, but it is definitely not front door worthy now.
So, still determined to have a nice wreath to hang on that shiny, new hook, I headed to the store that solves all my problems: Target. Most of their wreaths were pretty run of the mill until I came across this guy. The last one of its kind, it's bright and happy and ridiculous. The perfect kind of wreath for me.
And don't worry, I didn't let that beat-up wreath go to waste. For now, it's part of my winter centerpiece. You can still see some of the styrofoam cranberries that have been cracked open by all kinds of little teeth, but that's ok. It gives it character, right? Maybe, if I'm ambitious, it'll get a coat of spray paint before next year.
It would probably work better on a larger table, but let's be real, I don't eat at the table so it's really a non-issue.
