An Unexpected Wreath



Inspired by the Nester's Cool and Unusual Wreath Party I made a cool wreath...then promptly missed the party. Boo.

So, you get to see what I came up with (better late than never!) I needed a lightweight wreath for the glass door leading down to my basement.

Supplies:


Ceiling medallion (you can find these at home improvement stores, but an old one from a salvage place would be cool!)
Spray paint (I used a gloss)
Stain
Rag
Ribbon
or in my case an old scarf for hanging


I spray painted my medallion.



Brushed stain into all the nooks and crannies.





Wiped most of the stain away with a rag.



Then I pulled an old scarf through the hole and tied with a bow.



I hung it from a clear wreath holder and it's the perfect, lightweight wreath!

  9. So cute. I really like that you used a scarf. (I have so many I need to get rid of...and haven't.)

    I must find a clear wreath hanger. Too fun!

  10. I like this idea and you could make it work for any season with a paint change. My unusual wreath making supply is using a tennis racket as the base.
