When you think of winter holidays usually the colors that come to mind are red and green. These are the traditional colors of the season, but things are changing and colors are becoming more vibrant. A new holiday color trend that has been popping up are the color combo Turquoise and White. This combination is an eye-catching trend and one that makes your traditional decorations really pop. Trenice Bishop, a freelance designer, recently used this color trend in a wreath she made. To create this wreath Trenice used FolkArt paints. To make your own standout holiday wreath, see all the supplies and instructions below. Enjoy!

One of our favorite craft bloggers, Laura, just showed me this wonderful project she created to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I love the simplicity of this Valentine’s wreath. Laura was able to get this wreath for a steal. She snagged it at Michaels when they were having a 70% off sale. Awesome! The poor wreath had just survived the Christmas shopping holiday, so there were some spots on it that needed to be touched up. No problem, Laura just dabbed some our FolkArt Red Extreme Glitter paint on those areas. To see how Laura made this wreath check it out here on her blog, Katy Diddys.
