I started out with a standard straw wreath and this:
Bought at Aldi (!) in spring when they carried garden items.
But scince we have a teak front door (at least for now - but that is another post),
I wanted it to pop a little more and painted the wreath with some diluted white paint.
Now it reminded me of these traditional plaster used on broken arms :o
But then it suddenly remided me of a rustic life buoy!
And with our surname being very nautical and living a stonecast from the sea, I always can go for a costal look.
But I wanted it to look rather vintage than kitchy coastal ;)
I first tried this - but ended up like that:
I think it looks better on the wall on the side of the door, though.
