I wanted the wreath's colors to play off of the mums we have
dying sitting on our front porch.
I was also aiming for simplicity and this project truly fit the bill.
I stumbled upon this chipboard-like-floral-ring at Michaels a few weeks ago and liked that it was a lot cheaper then than the styrofoam wreath rings I usually use. So I threw the ring, some olive green yarn, and about one hundred items I don't need into my shopping cart and called it a day.
I rarely ever work with yarn but I thought it would add some great texture to my wreath.
Making this wreath was rather easy, which was great, because I am all about simplicity these days (did I already say that?)
First, I wrapped the yarn around the ring. I only covered about half of it because I had different plans for the other half. I used a glue gun to hold the yarn down.
This part of the project was a little time consuming but let me tell you wrapping this bad boy was rather therapeutic.....
Then for the other half of the wreath I grabbed some faux flowers I had and cut the stems off the heads of them. Then I just simply adhered the flowers to the rest of the ring with some hot glue.
Wham bam thank you ma'am. That was it. See I told you I like simple.
Let's talk storm doors......do you have one? If so, do you hang your wreaths on the outside of your storm door or regular door? I know storm doors provide extra protection but I find ours is really cramping my style!
