Here is what I hung on my door instead of a wreath
Piece of red scrapbooking paper
$1 glitter ornament from Walmart, you know the messy kind.
I just used a spay adheasive to glue the ornament to the paper. I think it turned out great.
I also got a silver key ornament that I plan on making something with so that we can leave it out for Santa. Even though we do have a fireplace it is not usable and the "chimney" is like a 10 in. diameter pipe. So the kids insist that we leave a magic key for Santa. Somehow last year we lost our key so now I want to make something really special so that we can make sure Santa can get in to leave us our presents.
I love those glittery $1 ornaments from Walmart. There are so many things you can do with them. I also picked up today a green one of the word Joy. I don't know what I will do with that one yet, but we will see.
Also one little tip to help keep the mess down from the glitter off of these ornaments. If you get a clear coat spay (usually in the spray paint section) and give the ornament a coat of that spray it will help stop most of the glitter from rubbing off.
For those that read this post I think I am back to my crafty self. YAY!!
