I have a little secret to share with you, I am just not fond of wreaths, for holidays or otherwise.  I used to hang a wreath on my door every year for Christmas because it was the "normal" thing to do.  Then a few years ago I found this inspiration pic and knew that this was the greeting I wanted for my holiday door. 

Sorry I do not know the source of this picture
although I believe it is from Country Living.

I set out to find some cable knit mittens but I just couldn't find any white ones...I did however find some red ones at a thrift store down the street from the office and decided they would be perfect for my little copycat holiday greeting...

I added some "Merry Christmas" ribbon and tucked in a variety of greens, small white flowers and some red berries...I love how this little greeting turned out, don't you?....I know it's a little more whimsical than my inspiration pic, but I absolutely adore this and it is just perfect for my holiday door. 


  1. I LOVE it! I think I have some holiday kitchen mits around and so need to pop this together for my kitchen window. Thanks for sharing. I adore simple thrifty ideas.

  2. Sheila ... So much fun and different for you front door greeting. Really like it.

  3. Hi Sheila- these are adorable! Great idea! I like being different too! I have little space between my door and the storm door and it's hard to put a wreath on because of it. We get such wintery weather that putting it on the outside of the door can be crazy...wind blowing it etc. Very cute!

  4. That is way cuter than any wreath. I love it, and so happy you shared.

  5. Sheila, I love your unique door greeting mittens! Perfect for the whole winter season. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Adorable! I hope you will come by and share this at my Show & Tell link party.

  9. I Love it, and I think it's much cuter than the inspiration one. The red color is more cheery. Great copy cat!
