Are you looking to give your California Maryland 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. However, most store-bought wreaths are quite pricey and often don’t come in the style you want for your own home. 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. A bright bow might not seem much, but with a little creativity, it could add a lot of flavor to your entryway or door.
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. After that, you can use a burlap ribbon to tie around the whole thing like a bow.
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. If you like saving wine bottle corks, you can actually 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. To add the finishing touches, you can make use of floral wire to bind some sprigs of evergreen and bright holly berries
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? Get a hold of a few torn sheets of music, then twist or curl them one by one so that you can glue them all together 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! You can use embroidery hoops to trace a wreath 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. Another item you can use to make a wreath is a necktie! You can use a foam wreath form as a mold to wrap and pin your neckties on. Make sure you glue the loose ends to the back so that they’re firmly attached. After that, you can use leftover fabric to make a bow. Now, you have a holiday wreath that’s dressed to impress!
