In case you are searching for a unique and imaginative or creative method to brighten up your Clayton home, a do-it-yourself wreath project is the best way to go! Wreaths are a classic and effortless approach to trim a door, wall, window or other location of your home. But on the other hand, store-bought wreaths can be pricey and usually look common or don’t match your taste and style. Rather, why not create one of these fun and creative DIY wreaths to deck the halls this season?
Bicycle wheel. Upcycle an old bicycle wheel into a wreath full of vintage fun. Just twine real or fake evergreen boughs around the rim, then wrap it in a festive red rope or ribbon. Just a few bright bows, and you’ve got the ideal touch for your entryway or door.
Peanut wreath. For a touch of the unconventional, why not make a wreath out of unshelled peanuts? Using a foam wreath form, merely glue peanuts in their shells to cover. Thereafter, twist a pretty burlap ribbon around the whole thing and tie in a bow.
Cookie cutters. If baking cookies is a huge part of your holidays, why not prepare a wreath that shows your favorite part of the season? Start by gluing decorative paper to the back of several cookie cutters. After, glue the cookie cutters into a circular shape. One final thing, tie with an attractive ribbon and hang for a visual treat anywhere your home needs a little cheer.
Wine corks. If you like saving wine bottle corks, you can opt to use them to make a fun wreath! Make use of a straw or twig wreath form, just glue your corks in concentric circles to cover. After that, take advantage of floral wire to attach some sprigs of evergreen and lively holly berries to finish the look.
Sheet music. If your glad tidings include lots of holiday music, why not have a wreath that brings forth your affinity for all things musical? Using torn sheets of music, just twist or curl them and then glue them together in a circular shape. Include several multi-colored paper rosettes to the inner ring to craft the proper musical decoration for your home.
PVC pipe. Not just for plumbing, PVC pipe may be applied to make a unique wreath for your home! Merely 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. Have you got so many old or single socks gathering in your laundry room? Rather than throwing them out, turn them into an original wreath creation! Just use two embroidery hoops (one smaller than the other), trace a wreath form onto a foam core. Subsequently, cut out the form, cut and wrap the sock around it, and glue them into place. Following that, fit the whole thing back inside the embroidery hoops and decorate.
Ties. If somebody you know has an excess number of neckties, you can utilize them to dress up a creative holiday wreath! Utilizing a foam wreath form, just simply wrap and pin the neckties in any arrangement you’d want. After that, glue the loose ends to the back to secure them in place. Use various leftover fabrics to craft a bow, and you’ve got a holiday wreath that is dressed to impress!
