God Jul Wreath

Something merry.  Our Christmas theme this season is "Scandinavian " and of course our Christmas home would not be complete with out at least one greeting of "god jul".  In Norway, Denmark and Sweden, "god jul" means,  "Merry Christmas" or "Good Yule" and is pronounced, "got Yule".  We thought this would be a nice way to welcome visitors into our home.

This wreath  and sign was super easy to put together.

What we used to make our God Jul wreath:

Woodland garland we already had.
Large wreath wicker form {on hand from Dollar store}.
Christmas sign {on hand from Dollar store}.
Red letters cut from cricut machine.

We took woodland garland and wrapped it around the wreath form and fluffed it up. Easy.

Here is the Dollar store sign we used to make the god jul sign with. we just flipped it over to the other side which was a white clean canvas.

           Here is the back side of the sign. Blank and just waiting for some action!

               Cricut cut letters. Of course these can be cut by hand if there is no cutting machine  or possibly pre cut letters from the craft store or letter stickers. We used glue dots to stick the letters to the board.

      Next we secured the god jul sign to the wreath by just hanging it on the garland.

Since we had some left over snowflakes we cut out to use on our  Red & White Christmas Mantel, we tucked a few into the wreath. 

So, welcome and "god jul" to you and yours! Be inspired, get creative!

The beginning of strife is like releasing water;
Therefore stop contention before a quarrel starts.

Proverbs 17:14

  1. I love that you're incorporating your theme into the wreath. The pops of red really make it stand out. And I love that it's thrifty! Thanks for linking up to The CSI Project challenge this week!
