This is the last wreath post, I promise!
A few years ago when my grandmother passed away someone gave her a beautiful wreath with artifical flowers on it. I usually try to keep things simple at my house (avoiding a lot of wall hangings etc.). But I really felt like this wreath needed a special place in my home. After moving 4 times in 4 years I felt attached to this wreath but in it’s original appearance I hated it. So what to do with something large that you are attached to but feel doesn’t communicate who you are, it just wasn’t my style! So I took off all the flowers and arrange them in a small vase that I could keep. Here is how we got the Summer wreath.
-natural wood paddle from a craft store
-applique for wall decal
-various color ribbons
-hot glue gun
-Spray paint your paddle & let it dry
-Apply decal according to package directions
-Start your widest ribbon at the bottom of your wreath an wrap around
-Take smaller ribbons and weave them throughout the wreath
-Place one small dot of hot glue at the ends of your shells and stick randomly or gathered on the wreath to your liking
-Stick your paddle through the wreath, you may need to secure it but i did not have to
One of my favorite things about this project is how fast it is and that you can use the wreath to decorate in a similar manner for the next season.
