How to Make a Natural Wreath

A Wintery White Wreath

You will need:

Vines, Twigs from your yard

Florist Wire

Dried Leaves

A Sharpie

Flat White Spray Paint

Seed Pods

I gathered my vines and twigs and removed all  the leaves.

 

My grandsons picked up fallen leaves and I placed them between the pages of a magazine until they were dry.

I wrapped the vines in a circle and added wire in several places to hold everything together.

After my circle was complete I used hot glue to attached the leaves. I added some artificial seed pods too.

After hot glueing everything, I spray painted the whole thing with flat white.

I used a black sharpie to draw the veins back.  As you can see, I didn’t want the spray to be solid, I left some areas natural.

I used some of my Dollar Tree ribbon to hang it with.  I just tied a knot on each side.

I like the contrast on the brown door.

I was inspired by Martha on the this project.  I didn’t buy anything, I used what I already had for this wreath.

When you scan through your magazines, think about the supplies that you have and recreate things you love.

It’s a good thing~as Martha would say ;)

I will be joining the Copy Cat fun at Debbiedoo’s on Dec.10th~get busy with your copy cat :)

    If I may be so bold Debbie, I like yours better than the original :-)
    I am going to have to scrounge the neighbourhood for vines and twigs, leaves and seed pods.

    Debbie…I think the white against your wood door is very winter–ee and beautiful. The house number is also very sweet.

    That is so beautifully imperfect Debbie. I love everything about it. The first thing that came to mind when I saw it is that it looks just like the one on Martha’s magazine. I am going to have to copycat you , but then again, that is impossible. Stunning!
