Cowgirl Chic ~ Yee Ha!

 Cowgirl "Welcome" Wreath

This wreath was so fun to make!  
I've seen a lot of Prairie Farmhouse Chic style as of late and I'm lovin' it.
I wanted a new wreath for my front door and decided to try my hand at this new look.
I love how lace, ruffles and roses look so wonderful with rope, horse shoes and burlap.  Natural meets chic.
I went to the thrift store and my local flea market to gather the materials I needed.
I dry brushed the brown rope with a bit of white paint to soften the look.  Then painted and decorated the horse shoes.  I made the flowers and roses from strips of  fabric and lace.  I made the little "Welcome" banner with my graphics program, card stock and pink twine.  And of course.....  a lot of hot glue (the horse shoes had to be wired on).

Have a great weekend!

Hello Elizabeth, I really like this idea! Being a country girl and all :)
But I just love the pinks and whites. I do have a guest bedroom just calling me for a make-over.
Have a great day!

Fantastic! Love a unique wreath - and this is it! Great job on this fun style. The banner going across is so pretty, and mixing in the rope, lace, and pink horseshoe are all such fun ideas. Well Done!! Catherine
