As you already know, we are in the middle of a bathroom organization series. Last week we organized the shower area, shared ideas on organizing a small sink, organized UNDER the bathroom sink and later this week, I share my bathroom makeover. But first, I noticed something in my home that needed attention. My wreaths! Don’t you love how welcoming wreaths look in the entrance of a home? But aren’t you always surprised at how expensive they are? If you have double doors (like me) its double the cost! I switch them out throughout the year to vary the look and this obviously extends their life, as they are not exposed to the elements year round. However, after a couple of years, the one pictured below, had seen better days. It had lost leaves and color. I am not very crafty, but I knew that I could use the existing frame to make a simple wreath.
The wreath frames were still strong and I wasn’t about to throw them away; I brought them inside the house and took off all the old foliage.
I found a stem on clearance at Target for $4.98 Score!
I took the stem apart separated the blooms in half to make sure my wreaths had an even number of blooms.
I thought I would have to use a hot glue gun but since the stems fit into the crevices so tight, I didn’t need it. Also, since I didn’t have a lot of blooms, I went for the side bangs look. Hehe. Only one side of the wreath got flowers.
As a little finishing touch, I added a burlap bow.
Its a good idea to keep the frames of the wreaths so that you can re-use them. Maybe your leaves are intact but you just want a little change. I was able to do these two wreaths for under $7. Not too bad.
It takes very little to make the entrance of your home say…WELCOME.
(I just noticed that my key mat is backwards. OCD nightmare, right there. 🙂 )
Hope you have a great week!
