Like the Emerald painted box from last week, this wreath project started because I wasn’t ready to decorate my door with bunnies and carrots, but wanted something to replace the Christmas wreath I took down
two weeks ago two months ago. This project took me a few hours, but wasn’t difficult. The wreath is more of a mustard yellow in person, which is currently my favorite accent color, but appears more orange in these pictures!
|The more you weave in and out on your cuts the more dimension your flower has. This rose was cut pretty straight.|
I then attached my flowers using white pins with a pearl on the end. You can see them much better in person, but if you look above, you can see one poking out from the green flower. I used pins so that I could easily change out the flowers for each season. The burlap ribbon is also wrapped around and then attached using a pin. This was found in my scrap bin, so nothing fancy there! You don’t have to use the ribbon, but I liked the dimension that it added to the wreath. I also used a little piece of the same ribbon to hang the wreath from the nail. I attached this with a pin as well. I probably spent about two hours total on this, spread out throughout the day. It was easy and I want to try to make more flowers, so I can’t wait to make another for my front door!
