DIY Wreath Roundup

My family loves wreaths.  They are usually stuffed full of fake flowers or wrapped with red, white, and blue ribbon.  Ick.  I finally found some wreaths that are too pretty to hang on the porch … I’d put any of these beauties on my wall anytime of the year.  All of these picks are fairly easy to make, just click on their tutorials for more info!

Left to Right.

Black and White Stripes:  Made from an old sweater[!] by Mandi.  Tutorial on Smile and Weave [towards the bottom].

Moss:  I love almost anything green.  This moss wreath is so simple and pretty.  Made by Christina of Our Little Box.

Felt:  White like snow felt wreath by Laura of Oh Hi.  No full tutorial posted, but she notes that if enough people inquire, she will probably put up a DIY post. [Oh, please do!]

Cupcake Wreath [amazing, right?!]: Made by Jen from Tatertots and Jello.  Cupcake liners, ribbon, and hot glue – I think even I could pull this one off!  She made it for Valentine’s Day, but depending on what cupcake liners you get the possibilities are endless.

Balloons:  What a cute idea – perfect for a birthday!  Made by Erin of Two More Seconds.

Paper Circles:  A fun project to do with kids … very Christmas-y!  Made by Beckie of Movies of Myself.

Patchwork:  I love patchwork quilts and this wreath looks just as homey and cozy.  By Jennifer Casa, of JCasa *handmade.

Yarn:  Those little felt flowers really make this wreath.  So pretty.  Made by Danielle of Take Heart.

Bicycle:  Very inventive.  No tutorial, but pretty simple – wrap ribbon and lights around an old bike tire.  Love it.  Made by Megan.

Clothespins:  I am beginning to realize that you can make a wreath of out almost anything.  This cool clothespin wreath was made by Denise of d. Sharp Journal.

Nature:  This one would be really fun to do with the kids – have them run around collecting pine cones and pods, then they can make their very own designs.  You could even bring out the spray paint for some pops of color.  Made by Maya of Maya*Made.

Simple Project to Make with Kids – DIY Feltboard

This craft is so simple that even someone with no crafting skills [like me] can do it!  It’s also perfect for little ones who can wield scissors.  As you can tell from the photo, my scissor skills aren’t the greatest, [I can’t cut a straight line to save my life] but Ava doesn’t care.  She loves taking the pieces off and rearranging them.  I also use it to tell her stories.  Originally, I glued the widows and door onto the house, but she just pulled them off [she’s 14 months] so I recommend just keeping all the pieces separate for those too young to understand the concept of “please don’t break that”.

What you will need:

Canvas [or piece from a cardboard box]

Spray Glue

1 Sheet of Stiff Felt

1 Pack of assorted felt squares

Scissors

Spray glue the stiff felt sheet to the canvas or cardboard.  Cut out some shapes, characters, etc. from the felt squares.  That’s it.  You’re done.  You can’t really get any easier than that.IMG_9272 Send me a picture of yours when you’re finished and put mine to shame.  LOL
