{DIY}: Wreath


So I, like many of you all have been gathering oodles and oodles of ideas from Pinterest. I'm pretty sure if I tried to attempt making every dinner, drink, dessert, and craft project I've pinned I'd have to live to be 157 years old (and have a personal trainer to help be burn off all the calories I cook!). But I have gotten cracking on a few and I started with the easiest.

I have a fall and winter wreath but didn't have one for spring so after seeing one on Etsy via Pinterest I thought surely I could replicate it. So I headed to Michael's and bought a grapevine wreath for $4, and grabbed a few artificial flowers (which happened to be 50% off when I was there so that only set me back $6) and an unpainted letter H for $1.


I headed home and got out the trusty glue gun and some white paint I had left from when I did Brooklyn's nursery letters. I painted a few coats on the wood letter and while that dried cut the flowers off their wire stems and figured out where I wanted to place them and hot glued those suckers on the wreath. Once the letter was dry I glued that on and voila! a personalized, hand made wreath for $11 and 30 minutes of painting and gluing!
