hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

Welcome to Day 2 of our mini-series on spicing up your front door for the holidays! Yesterday, Jess showed you how to make your own snowman wreath, and today I’m going to give you a super fast and really versatile (not to mention, it looks awesome!) way to change things up and get rid of those old, dated Christmas wreaths- c’mon, you know you have them. I like to call it the Anti-Wreath.

You may remember that last year, I made an Autumn Anti-wreath using some gilded pumpkins, orange ribbon and a frame that I spraypainted purple. (You can find the whole tutorial here)
I love it, but the purple frame just isn’t cutting it for that Christmasy feel. Enter Anti-Wreath #2.

We debuted this baby yesterday on the morning show at Channel 69 News – you can see the whole segment here– Needless to say, we have a pretty fun time with Eve & Jaciel!
Anyhow, back to the Anit-wreath…it’s  going to make it’s home on my front door as soon as I get back from London (the countdown is on!!)


The other thing you can do to dress up your door is to add vinyl words to it. This option is perfect for those of you who aren’t ready to make a permanent change, because it can be removed when the season is over. The options are endless! We just got a Silhouette Cameo and are learning the ins and outs, but so far it’s awesome.
I just picked a free font I liked (Janda Safe and Sound), typed in the “Be Merry” phrase and printed it out. The cutting is done for you, so all you have to do is peel the letters off the backing and adhere them to your door. Easy peasy!
If you don’t have a Silhouette, no worries!  Check out these other fun vinyl phrases I found on Etsy:
Well there it is, my second, successful Anti-Wreath!
Do tell, are you a wreath lover or a hater like me?
