Ceiling Medallion Wreath

I’ve been thinking a lot about how to dress up my home from the outside. I would love to do a complete landscaping overhaul, but we definitely do not have the budget for that, so I decided to create a simple addition that is easy to create as well as easy on the wallet- a ceiling medallion wreath.

Do you like my new wreath?

While browsing ceiling fans a month ago, I saw a display at Lowes for these ceiling medallions:

They are light weight (made from a durable plastic of some sort) and they come in different sizes and designs. I think they range in price from about $10- $25 or so. The one I bought was $15.

I took it home, added some paint to make the design pop, and hung it with some ribbon for my front door now!

The red ribbon with the blue and white wreath will be perfect to keep up for Independence Day, but I’m excited to change out the ribbon for the seasons and holidays.

I think a wreath is such a fun way to welcome your guests and add some color to your home.

And here is a simple way to hang a wreath by ribbon instead of using a door hook-

A thumb tack!

So what do you think?

    I REALLY want to put in some pull-out cab.’s in my kitchen. Would like a slide out trash cab. Oh and some pretty flowers for the patio.

  2. says

    Thanks for hosting! I would use the Lowe’s gift card to complete some landscaping in the front and backyard! Or make a headboard… Or complete our kitchen backsplash… Or anything else on my TO DO list. :)

  3. says

    Oh, gosh! With “operation finish basement” under way, a Lowes gift card would be AMAZING…they pretty much know us by name at our local Lowes since we are there every few days to pick up supplies! Right now we would use it for concrete mix…

  4. says

    Oh the possibilities are endless! But it would probably go towards paint. I have several projects I am wanting to do and they all involve paint.

    With $100 I’d put it towards the bathroom reno we’ve been forced to do thanks to a broken pipe! I really NEED to win!

  6. Steph @ Crafting in the Rain says

    I use that same trick to hang wreaths!
    We’re about to remodel a bathroom and we love Lowes!

  7. says

    Good Morning! Yes, I love the wreath, that is super creative and I love that it is plastic so it would be easy to hang anywhere. Thank you so much for hosting each week, there is a ton of talent here. How would I spend a Lowe’s card? My “craft room” is truly a mess and I would use it to complete the shelving that I need, repaint my existing pieces, and use the remainder for organizing bins and hooks. Oooh that was fun to spend in my head too :)

    Hugs, Tanya

    I love the wreath, but I LOVE how you hung it! Genius! $100 at Lowes would burn a hole in my pocket! I would definitely use it to make some great flower boxes for my front porch and fill them with gorgeous blooms. Thanks for the party AND the giveaway!

  9. says

    That thumb tack trick is amazing! I make a new wreath every month. I really don’t like the look of wreath hangers. Thanks so much for the tip!

    I’d use the gift card for organization solutions. My house is in need of a major organization make over!

  10. Sarah Wadsworth says

    Super cute idea! We are buying a new home so I have a milllion things I could spend it on!

  11. says

    We’re in the process of doing some landscaping around the house & would love to add some finishing touches with a gift card from Lowe’s! We could use some flowers & some shrubs to go around the house – it would definitely be put to good use!

  12. says

    I love your new wreath! What a cute idea! :)
    If I won the gift card, I would give it to my parents in law for being amazing. They could put it towards remodeling their kitchen.
    Thank you so much for the chance to win!
    xo! Vanessa

  13. Heidi V says

    Our outside definitely needs some help. I’d probably start with house numbers and then work on our pathetic flowerbed!

  14. Kathy Thomas says

    If I won, I’d spend it on garden supplies. I’m planting a row for the hungry.

  15. says

    To win $$ from Lowes? It definitely wouldn’t be hard to spend! How about some paint for my plain jane house, or a new rug for my office, or some new planters for the front door. See how easy? Love your blog and thanks for hosting a terrific party!!

  16. Dee says

    LOVE this idea! I’d probably knock-off your idea (so darling) and then I’d buy paint. Our walls are sad and depressing and I’d love to change that!

  17. Carmen says

    We really need to add some curb-appeal to our house. Front door and pillars need repainting, siding needs washing, need more perennials and long-term plants out front!

  18. carolyn {my simple messterpiece} says

    I would use the Lowe’s gift card to make a few more messes around my house … perhaps some spicy RED paint on my front door! :)

  19. Janie La Pierre says

    I actually saw an arbor that I would love to put in my side yard with some side vinyl fencing. I would put the $100.00 towards that!

  20. says

    Love this wreath! If I won the gift card, I’d use it to do your exact project, then I’d take what was left and get something adorable for the garden for the summer!

  21. InstantKarma75 says

    I would use it for a medallion wreath, and something else to spice up our new rental house. It fell straight out of the 60s right into our lap and we’re in love, but we need to spruce it up to show off its MCM glory. Thanks for all you do on your blog, especially your link parties-they’re some of the best on the web!

  22. Sarah S. says

    I’d buy paint! There are so many surfaces of our home, inside and out, that need a fresh coat.

  23. Fran C says

    We need to stain the trim on our house so that would be first on the list. Then flowers!!!!!

  24. MelissaJane says

    Funny – I’d spend part of it on ceiling medallions! I’ve been planning to paint and hang a few in the dining room. I love this wreath idea.

  25. Erin Young says

    oh my gosh – how would i spend it? let’s see…..little wall in backyard, paint for awning, new light fixtures in front yard, new house numbers, new plants for backyard, paint for family room, new door knobs for house (get rid of brass!)….i could think of a million things to do with it!! :)))

  26. says

    oh wow! well, first off I would make one of the ceiling tile wreaths. . .LOVE! then I would buy stuff for my garden. . .thanks so much!

  27. jessica w says

    it is crazy how little things like potted plants can make such a huge impact!
