Thrifty to Nifty Decor
This wreath was Fifty cents at a local thrift store which support several elementary schools in my area. It was all the rage but not any more. Lets see what I can do to update it for the spring season.
Remove the Flowers.
Shop in Your House. Gather your supplies. I alway have a a bit extra for options if possible.
Begin arranging the green stems to fill in and curve gently. I always do a trail arrangement to make sure I have enough and like the design.
Add the flowers while tweaking the placement of where the flowers land in the wreath.
Thread ribbon cord through the openings in the doily. You do not need a needle for this step.
This is the original front door to our late 1930's cape cod style home. I added the stained glass to provide privacy but let in light.
Our door needs a fresh coat of paint. Please focus on the lovely wreath today. The doily was just given to me recently when my aunt passed away from her son.
It looks sweet in place of a bow for a different styling. What other items have you used to finish off a wreath? Stop by Dragonfly & Lily Pads Facebook and leave a comment of photo of a wreath you have made.
The remainder of the materials were in my house. As with most thrifty souls there is plenty more where that came from.
The wreath is a fresh with welcoming burst of colors to greet my guest for spring. Not bad for a fifty cent investment plus fun creative time.
Did you notice I did not mention glue or tape in this tutorial? You are welcome to use them both but I chose not to so I could reuse all the materials in the wreath. The have greens have already made an appearance on D&LP.
I have this song in my mind right now. 🎵If you Like Please Put a Pin on it.🎶
