5 ways to display kitchen cabinet wreaths | On The Creek Blog //

5 different ways to display Christmas wreaths in the kitchen! 

After my post last week about Kitchen Christmas decor, I started thinking about all of the ways to display Christmas wreaths in the kitchen.  I had a few of these Dollar Tree wreaths, so I decided to do a little photo shoot with them!  I came up with 5 different ways to display the wreaths & I’ll be highlighting them below…so let’s get started!

new kitchen cabinet door hinges | on the creek blog //

After years of living with old hinges, I finally replaced them to match my door pulls!

When we completely overhauled our kitchen a couple years ago, the door hinges were the last thing on my mind.

I mean, the doors already came with hinges & replacement hinges are so expensive! We called it good enough & that was that…

Until it started bothering me.

You know those things that once you see them, they can’t be unseen?! Well, one day, the hinges did that to me. The old & busted hinges were all I could see every time I entered the kitchen! I’d walk in there & think, ‘I really should change these hinges out!’ all the time!

Finally, I checked out their selection of hinges when we were at Home Depot for unrelated reasons. We bought our door pulls there, so I figured they would have matching hinges. I was so excited that their hinges matched the door pulls perfectly! I immediately picked up the value packs! They’re still expensive, but it wouldn’t bother me anymore!

Mason jar baking supply storage | On The Creek Blog //

Easy baking storage using large mason jars!

Since we’re getting into the Christmas baking season, I decided to switch up my spice shelf!

My baking supplies are usually in the cabinet above my shelf but since I like to bake cookies during Christmastime so I wanted my baking supplies easy to get to.
