DIY Peace Sign Wreath & Christmas Window Display!

It's snowing today!

. . . What an absolutely perfect setting for our Christmas party this evening with friends. Turkey in the oven, our tree is up and sparkling - last thing on my list was our window display! Repurposing the embroidery hoop I used for my Fall wreath this year, I used extra garland to create this amazing peace sign that's hanging in front of our gorgeous twinkly lights I got off Amazon for super cheap. This whole window display cost me less than $25. Amazing! Scroll down to see a step-by-step guide to creating your own peace sign wreath! :)



  • Sisal Twine
  • Floral Wire
  • Fresh Garland - got mine at Trader Joes for $6 a bunch! 
  • Embroidery/Quilting Hoop - size completely depends on your preferences. I opted for a large, more substantial piece at 23" diameter. 
  • Any additional faux florals, berries, greenery, etc.!

DIY Adventures
Our Falling Leaves Window Display!

During the month of October . . . 

. . . I put up two retro pumpkin lights in our "storefront" windows getting into the Halloween spirit. The neighborhood attention was CRAZY! Since my desk set up is close to the window, I always heard the "ooh's and ahh's" of the neighborhood kids, and we got a ton of compliments when passing out candy. 

I knew we had a perfect canvas for some more "grand" displays, so for the month of November, inspired by our own maple tree leaves falling in front of the apartment, I created our own "falling leaves" display with just a few simple, and inexpensive materials.

That's it :)


The final look was so adorable, and really just as big of a hit as the Halloween pumpkins. Get ready for Christmas ya'll - I'm now the Macy's window rep of the block. It's gonna be big!
