Wood Frame Wreath

The idea for this wood frame wreath project originally came from Hobby Lobby, but I decided to add my personal touch to it. I’m a big believer in reusing and repurposing as many of my craft supplies and old projects as possible, so I jumped at the chance to do this wreath when I saw it on the Hobby Lobby website. So instead of buying a new frame, I reused a frame that was part of an old canvas I had in my room.

Instructions:

1. First, I removed the used canvas from the frame. You can also buy bare wood frames at any craft store.

2. Use a foam brush to apply the wood tint to the frame. Let dry. One coat was more than enough to darken the wood.

3. Paint the chipboard word. Set it aside to dry.

4. Cut and then staple the map paper to fit on the back of the frame.

5. Use the hot glue gun to adhere the chipboard word to the center of the frame.

6. Finally, glue on the flowers. You may also need to install a frame hook on the back if it doesn’t already have one.

And that’s it! Hang the new wreath on your wall or door and enjoy!
