Cheers - A Winter Wreath!

Now that Thanksgiving is over we are officially allowed to begin celebrating the winter holidays in the Harris household (it is strictly forbidden before Thanksgiving)!  I don't like making a wreath dedicated to one particular holiday because I usually don't have the time to make one for each holiday, so I made one that would last me through Christmas and late winter!
The hubby and I were browsing all the ornaments at Target last night and we came across these adorable bird ornaments that sparked my idea for this wreath!
I grabbed MyColor™ inspired by Pantone® paint in Ocean Depths, the same color I used on my accessory station, some leftover burlap and a frame I had in the garage.
Originally I had thought about doing a circle wreath, but I decided to go a less traditional route.
I painted the frame with just one coat of paint.  I absolutely adore how this paint covers.  I don't even have to distress it to get a worn out look.
I then used my leftover burlap, hot glue, and some letter stamps I got for $1 at Target to make the "cheers" banner.  I simply hot glued the banner to the back of the frame.
The hubby helped me pick out the bird ornaments - he says the bird with the hat is the boy bird and the bird with the scarf is the girl bird.  Hahaha!  I hot glued them together, then glued them to the frame.
Lastly I added a burlap ribbon to the top and some felt to the back to keep the frame from scratching up our door.  Simple, but cute!
