Sappy moment over.
Thrilled to be here with a 10 minute fall wreath craft. There used to be a time when I really loved creating a wreath, but honestly I felt they took a lot of time and money. However, I decided to make a non-traditional version using stuff I had on hand already.
I’d like to thank Ariel from PMQ for Two for hosting this wreath hop and helping get my butt in gear to create/make something. Sometimes I have crafters block.
The supplies are simple, the results chic and of course, there’s a bit of bling.
Let’s get started.
-4 large bundles/bouquets of faux florals
-Metallic washi tape
Step 1: Fluff up your florals and join them all together using a zip tie. Continue to fluff the individual components around until it looks aesthetically pleasing. My bouquet ended up being a bit too tall, so I simply bent the bottom to make it fit the half-moon copper pail I was using.
Step 2: Use some metallic washi tape (or other decorative tape) to add some oomph to your container/vessel. I thought the copper by itself looked a bit too farmhouse for the look I wanted, so some simple stripes add a touch of contrast and interest.
Step 3 (Optional): Grab a wreath hanger and cut some ribbon to size to cover the metal part. You can adhere it with a few strips of double-sided tape. The gold finish of my wreath hanger totally clashed with the other colors, so a simple black satin ribbon and scrapbook buckle cover that icky gold right up.
Step 4: Place the flowers in the container, stick the feathers in, hook it onto the wreath hanger and hang on the door. Ta-dah!
I love the eclectic feel, and I’m so crushing on mauve/blush colors right now accented with metallics. The great thing is that none of this is permanent, so it’s easy to repurpose all these components elsewhere at a later date.
