I have this wreath on my laundry closet door and so I thought I would do a little different spin on it and make one for my door.
This is such an easy wreath to make, you can do this even if you aren't super crafty.
I had just bought a new outdoor rug for my back door and I love the color combinations. This was the inspiration for my wreath.
You need your craft paint in the colors you choose, a paint brush, a 9" cardboard cake board, scissors, glue gun, and clothespins.
I wish had the lime green in my rug and I didn't have any yellow, so these are the colors I ended up using. I also had this glitter paint that I wanted to use to add a pop of even more fun.
Fold your cake board in half and cut the center out of the board, making sure the clothespins cover the remaining ring.
Since I was using this outside, I covered the cardboard ring in tape to keep it from getting soggy when it rained. You could skip this step if you aren't using it outside or if you have a covered patio.
I had kind of a happy accident here. I didn't realize that my clothespins were two different sizes. So I ended up just alternating them so I would have enough. I really like the way it looks with the two different sizes.
I wrote the letters of the different colors on the back of the clothespins so I would know the pattern I was using.
I started with purple skipping clothespins in between each purple clothespin.
Then I did green. I kind of dabbed the paint on so it would be thick enough. I still had to go back with the green and touch up certain areas.
Here is the clothespins before I touched them up.
I only added the glitter paint to the purple pins. It goes on kind of milky but dries clear leaving only glitter behind.
I had this ribbon on hand and thought it went well with the doormat and the wreath.
I wrapped the ribbon around the uncovered part of the wreath, then made a funky bow and a loop for hanging. I used hot glue to secure it.
And that's it! Pretty simple and I thought it turned out cute!
I love the little pop of glitter on the purple pins.
(And I have no idea what happened to my rug. When I took this picture, it had been outside for ONE day. Such a weird stain.)
But I think it looks fun and inviting for a back door. The possibilities are endless! And the supplies are really cheap to buy. If you try one, share a picture with me! I'd love to see your variations!
