This post has been way too many days in the making.
I love how this easy wreath turned out that I made recently for my front door.
It was fun, thrifty and I was able to use supplies I already had!
Perfect for a rainy day when you want to stay in your comfies and not have to leave the house right?
I used a foam wreath form that I already had (it had flannel wrapped around it from a while ago) torn strips of kraft paper, and raffia covered florist wire to secure each section.
Torn into long strips a few inches wide, and twisted, it becomes….
So pretty and ready for a new life as a simple farmhouse style wreath!
I twisted each piece of torn paper, wrapped them around the wreath in rows, and tucked the ends in and under to stay in place as I went.
Yep, it was that easy.
I did find that hot glue and kraft paper are not the besties I hoped they would be so tucking the ends in was important to keep it all in place.
When I finished I wrapped the raffia covered wire in a criss-cross pattern around the wreath.
And that same wire made a built in hanger when I was done.
I clipped the ends and twisted them together, tucking them in so there were no sharp edges.
And that was the easiest wreath I think I have ever made.
It was a bit more time consuming due to the tearing and twisting of the kraft paper, but so worth it.
I love the simplicity of the natural paper against our grey door.
Just what I was hoping for.
Are you getting as excited about Spring as I am??
Seeing the trees budding and big bunches of daffodils everyone makes me so happy, can’t wait for those longer days and SUN GLORIOUS SUN!!
