Are you looking to give your Grandville home a new look? If so, there’s no better way to do it than to give it a do-it-yourself wreath project. Wreaths give you an easy answer to trimming a door, wall, window, or any other area of your home. But, store-bought wreaths will typically be expensive and generic, so they might not always mix well with your chosen style. So, why not go for a DIY wreath to deck the halls this season?
Bicycle wheel. Upcycle an old bicycle wheel into a wreath full of vintage fun. Simply twine real or fake evergreen boughs around the rim, then wrap it in a festive red rope or ribbon. If all you’ve got are a few bright bows, that would be enough to make your entryway or door more interesting.
Peanut wreath. For a touch of the unconventional, why not create a wreath out of unshelled peanuts? Taking peanuts in their shells, glue them to a foam wreath form. Afterward, take a burlap ribbon and tie it like a bow around the whole thing.
Cookie cutters. Celebrate this season by making a wreath that reflects a big part of this season — baking cookies! Start by gluing decorative paper to the back of several cookie cutters. Then, glue the cookie cutters into a circular shape. To top it all off, use a pretty ribbon around it and hang it anywhere inside your home for some warm vibes!
Wine corks. Do you enjoy saving wine bottle corks? If so, you can put them to good use by turning them into a wreath Using a straw or twig wreath form, simply glue your corks in concentric circles to cover. Afterward, you use floral wire to attach sprigs of evergreen and bright holly berries for all the warm vibes!
Sheet music. Music is a good part of any festivity. This holiday season, why not express the musical side of the festivities through a wreath? You can use torn sheets of music and twist (or curl) them, then glue them in a circular shape. Add some colorful paper rosettes to the inner ring to craft the perfect musical decoration for your home.
PVC pipe. Not just for plumbing, PVC pipe can be used to make a unique wreath for your home! Simply cut different sizes of PVC pipe into thin sections, then glue them together (with open sides facing outward) into a circular arrangement. After spray painting the pipe a pretty gold or another color, fill the openings of the pipes with colorful ornaments for a festive decoration.
Socks. Time for you to gather all of your old or single socks from the laundry room. Don’t throw them away; instead, turn them into a wreath! Embroidery hoops make for good guides to trace a wreath form onto a foam core. Cut out the form and wrap it with socks. Make sure you glue them! Then, fit the whole thing back inside the embroidery hoops and decorate.
Ties. Do you have a few neckties you no longer plan to use? Turn them into a wreath, instead! Make use of a foam wreath form to wrap and pin your neckties onto, in any manner you choose! And then, glue your loose ends to the back to keep them in place. With some leftover fabric, you can add the finishing touches by crafting a bow to complete your wreath that’s dressed to impress.
