Interchangeable Wreath...what?

As you may have seen before in some of my pictures, or if we are “facebook friends”, you may have noticed my old “vintage” shutters that I have hanging on my wall in my family room.  Well, a while back {after I initially hung them up}, I thought they were missing something….while I think the shutters themselves are beautiful just the way they are, they looked a little “plain” hanging on my wall….I just felt they were a little “random”…SO, I thought…”what can I do to these without compromising the “integrity” of these AWESOME vintage/shabby shutters”??

Why, what other than to hang a WREATH!?  DUH!  Isn’t that the answer to everything??  Or in the words of Beyoncé, “If you like it then you should have put a ring wreath on it”….oh….wait…..  =)  ….kidding…..
Here is the wreath that I had on there pretty much since Christmas...

So here is that I did {I didn’t want to spend a lot of money…and I wanted something neutral and simple}, so I headed to my local closest AC Moore {which is really something like 25 miles away…}….I perused the aisle of “Spring Wreath’s” they had on sale….{for $19.99 I even picked one out, which I returned later…}…..but then I came to the aisle of “moss”, and “planters foam”, and “faux straw”….and voila!  Right in front of me, for $4.99, was a whole STACK of plain “grapevine” wreaths….so I grabbed one and figured I had enough old {artificial} hydrangeas laying around at home that I could SURELY do something with….
So after I got home, I scrounged around for the {not-currently-being-used} hydrangeas and proceeded to cut the stems off of them so that I could stick them in my new wreath…I literally just shoved them into the “wrap-around” vine, fluffed them up a little bit, and BAM!  Done.
Here it is…AND, the best part about this….is that come FALL, or Christmas, or heck, even July 4th, I can switch out the flowers to be more “festive”!
