I love a good craft and I love some seasonal decor. Put it all together and what do you get? A fun seasonal wreath for your front door of course! Lol. I had seen so many awesome designs on Pinterest – black hole of DIY inspiration – and I knew this was one I could easily conquer myself. After a quick trip to Michaels and JoAnns – don’t forget your coupons! – I had all the supplies necessary to make this piece.
I simply bought a plain circular wreath made of branches – this one happens to be painted in a dark blue hue which I thought was an interesting alternative to your typical brown look. Then I picked out a variety of fake floral bushels all in white/cream/and green tones. Lastly, I hunted down a thick cardboard “hello” sign that I spray painted gold.
I dismantled all the floral components with wire cutters and laid them out along the edge of the wreath. Once happy with my starting layout, I used a glue gun to affix them to the wreath and filled in with additional foliage here and there until it was lush and full. I enjoyed the look of some of the sprigs of greenery extending off the borders of the circle – a little whimsy (wink). Fun fact – the “hello” sign is just nestled into the branches as opposed to being permanently glued so I can use it again when I swap it out for my Fall wreath – stay tuned for the reveal of this beauty once it finally becomes Autumn!
I have a little clear zip tie that loops around some of the branches from the back so that it can hang from a 3M hook I stuck to our front door. This makes it easy to change up as you move through the seasons.
~ Takeaway ~ Making a wreath is one of the easiest and most foolproof crafts you can do to entertain yourself for a couple hours and have a usable end result for your home. Decorating your home for the corresponding season is one of my favorite ways to personalize and stylize your environment. It really helps you embrace the season and get excited about all of the unique aspects of that particular time of year. Is it Fall yet?!?!?!
