Easy to Make Pink Welcome Wreath

 

I love this easy to make pink Welcome Wreath!!  Pink is a total departure from my normal color palette.  When I was ready to paint the quilter’s loop, my daughter said, “it has to be pink!!!”  Really?  Pink?  Pink has never been “my” color.  Blue, bronze, gray, white…yep, that’s where I was leaning.  Yet, when I looked at the floral options I had on hand, pink seemed perfect.  She sold me, pink is so pretty and screams Spring or Summer!!  I think I may need to make one with my daughter’s name instead of “welcome.”  Hmmm…grabbing the keys and I’m off to the craft store.

Supplies

  • Quilter’s loop (wooden-I bought this one at Hobby Lobby)

Directions

 

  • Paint the quilter’s loop and wood “welcome” cut out using the foam brush and outdoor paint-let them dry completely
  • Add twine to the “welcome” wood cut out and hang it from the clasp of the quilter’s loop, making sure the knot is secure
  • Hot glue floral stems to the top of the quilter’s loop, hiding the clasp.  I placed two stems facing each other to include some of the greens.  Then, I took the tops off of the stems and glued them in the middle to fill in. You may need to cut or break off some of the stems to ensure they fit.
  • Tie a small piece of twine around the clasp to create a loop for hanging (Optional)

Hello Door Sign with Forsythia

This Hello Door Sign with Forsythia is a great pop of color for summer!  Forsythia bushes are a favorite of mine.  When I found these artificial Forsythia branches, I knew I had to make something where they were the center of the design.  

Supplies:

  • 14 inch wood round
  • Forsythia floral stems (I found these at Hobby Lobby)
  • Wood stain (use a color that matches your decor or style)
  • Foam brush
  • Wired ribbon (I used a dark yellow ribbon)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Metal “hello” sign (I bought this one at Hobby Lobby)

Directions: 

  • Stain wood round with the desired shade of stain-let it dry completely
  • Create a bow with wired ribbon
  • Hot glue Forsythia stems to the dry wood round in a spray
  • Add bow to the wood round using hot glue
  • Affix “hello” sign to the wood round using hot glue
  • In order to hang the round, add a 3-4 inch piece of the ribbon to the back of the round with hot glue

Joy Yarn Wreath

Joy Yarn Wreath

Joy Yarn Wreath

This Joy Yarn Wreath is a sweet, simple addition to your door for Christmas.  Buffalo check is one of my favorite patterns.  While bringing both a warm and rustic feel to a wreath or decor, it can also be a simple pop of color for your interior or exterior door.  I am not able to keep a yarn wreath of my front door on the outside because it would be exposed to the elements.  However, I put a hook on the inside of the door to enjoy it there.

 

Supplies for Joy Yarn Wreath: 

  • Foam or wire wreath form (14 inch form used)
  • Black loop yarn (2 skeins)
  • Ribbon (I used red and black buffalo check)
  • Ornament (I picked this one up at Hobby Lobby and used ribbon that matched)
  • Twine
  • (Optional) hot glue and hot glue gun

Memorial Cardinal Mini-Wreath

Memorial Cardinal Mini-Wreath 

Memorial Cardinal Mini-Wreath

I have heard it said that when you are visited by a cardinal, you have been visited by a loved one who has passed away.  This is such a comforting thought in grief.  Whenever I see a cardinal, I think of my Dad and my grandparents.  While we will not truly know if there is something to this idea until we have passed on ourselves, it is a comforting thought that those we loved could still be looking in on us from time to time.  This Memorial Cardinal Mini-Wreath is a sweet reminder of those we have lost and keeps them near to us in the holiday season.

As a mini-wreath, I have used this one on my hutch in the dining room.  This is a simple, endearing gift to give someone who is grieving a loss during the holiday season.

Supplies

  • White Loop Yarn (1 skein)
  • Foam wreath form (I used a 9 inch wreath form)
  • Metal cardinal ornament (I found this one at Hobby Lobby in their Christmas clearance)
  • Twine

Directions

  • Start wrapping the loop yarn around the wreath form.  Tighten the yarn around the beginning piece of yarn and then start wrapping.  There is no need for glue or pins.
  • When the wreath form is wrapped, cut off the excess yarn and tie the end into the project to hide the end piece
  • Tie the metal cardinal ornament to the wreath form using twine and hang it down into the bottom of the wreath form.  This gives the appearance that the bird is sitting on the wreath.
