As I got ready to take down my winter/spring yarn wrap wreath a week ago, I tried to decide what kind of door wreath I wanted to make to replace it. Working with yarn in these Georgia hot & humid summer days seemed unappealing to me. I knew I needed a little craft therapy so I went down to my local Michaels store. As I walked around looking for inspiration I saw some really uniquely shaped unfinished wood frames. From the moment my eye caught that $7.99 price tag, I clutched my 40% off coupon and confidently walked to the register with my supplies in hand. With out further adieu, I present to you: How To Make a Picture Frame Wreath!
- Unfinished Wood Frame
- Spray Paint
- Scrapbook Paper
- Rope or String
- Old key or other attachable accessory
- Stick-on labels
- Med- Large rubber stamp
- Letter Stamps
- Ink Pad (Black worked best)
- Hot Glue
- Hot Glue Gun
- Triangular traceable shape
- Pencil for tracing
- I normally use those big wreath hooks that go over the top of my door to hang my wreaths. However, given the “thin” “petite” nature of this door hanging, I had to ditch the unsightly hook and go for a more primitive solution: A clear push-pin. You could also use those small clear “stick on anything anywhere” easily removable hooks too.
I hope this post inspires you to think outside the
box circle when it comes to door wreaths. I love to admire my wreath from my mailbox each day and I’m glad that I did something different for a change. If you ever wondered how to make a picture frame wreath, I hope this post answers your questions. Please feel free to share any out of the box door wreaths you have made before in the comments section below.
