It’s the most wonderful decorating time of the year! I’ve gone a slightly different direction in my holiday home decor this year, with lots of pink and teal and of course, glitz and glam. I added a few new things last year, like new stockings and a few holiday accents, but most of my decorations have been traditional reds and greens up to now, and buying all new isn’t an option for many reasons, so I’m re-working much of what I have to fit the new color scheme. I’m also making a few new things such as this adorable pompom hoop wreath! It was super simple to make. Let me show you how!

  1. Make six extra-large and four large pom-poms using your pom-pom makers for a 14″ wreath. If using a different size hoop, be sure to make enough to cover at least half the embroidery hoop. Use various color combinations to add variety.
  2. Shape the pom-poms with scissors and trim tails.

Assemble the Wreath:

  1. Cut an 18″ piece of the garland with the wire cutters.
  2. Attach the greenery with the floral wire to the bottom half of the embroidery hoop.
  3. P0ke a length of floral wire through the pom-poms and attach the pom-poms to the hoop. Arrange until the hoop is covered and greenery peeks out.
  4. Turn the hoop so that the greenery and pompoms sit on a diagonal. Add ribbon to hang and a ribbon tail in the center of the pompoms.

I hung my wreath from our chalkboard door and added a holiday greeting behind. I love the idea though that the wreath can be used all year round! One decoration down – 400 to make-over! How about you? What have you used in your holiday decor this year?

How to make this vibrant unique Spring Wreath (from book pages!)

Starting to think about Spring decor? Start by inexpensively updating the front door with a shot of color in the form of something floral, like this book page floral wreath! 

I have a wreath for nearly every season and emotion – I have an adorable Spring Wreath that I’ve put out for the past few years. However, I get bored so quickly that I need to change things up every few years and I was ready for something different. I’ve been eyeing up the gorgeous spring wreaths that seem to be everywhere these days, although I can never bring myself to buy one. I always seem to have that internal conversation going on that says, “I could make that.” because in my head I can make anything. #IthinkImMcGyverbutneverMartha

So, for the March Create with Me DIY Challenge I decided to prove that fact – that I could make oneThis fun challenge is where you, our readers, vote on the materials we’ll use for next month’s projects, so be sure to scroll to the very last bit of this post to vote for your favorite and get a peek at what my friends came up with before you go. For past challenges, check out the Create with Me menu. This month’s challenge was to create something using book pages. How can wreaths and book pages coincide, you ask? Let me show you!

HOW TO MAKE A SPRING BOOK PAGE FLORAL WREATH

Here is what you’ll need:

Print out the Pattern

Print out and cut your flower pattern, then trace your design onto the book pages. I used my Cricut for this, but it’s really and truly not necessary. I’m just lazy. The sheets are so thin you could cut multiple pages at one time. You’ll need two flowers and two leaves per bloom.

Paint the leaf cut-outs – you’ll paint the flowers shortly. I used watercolors because I wanted the colors to be vibrant but still sheer enough that the text would be visible.

While the leaves dry, begin assembling your flowers following these instructions:

Create the stem

Bend a hook in a 9″ piece of floral wire and cut a 2″x2″ square from the foil. Place a hot glue dot into the center of the foil and wrap the foil around the hook in the wire, creating a bulb.

Step 2: Add petals

Gently curl the edges of two flower petals up, then putting a dab of glue along the bottom edge of the foil bulb, press the stem through the center of the smaller of the two flower petals, pushing up to adhere the petal to the bottom of the flower bulb.

Shape flower

Attach the petals up and around the bulb, alternating petals as you go around, securing underneath with glue. Add larger petal in the same fashion, pressing the stem through the center and repeat attaching the petals.

Paint the Blooms

Your flowers are now ready for painting. I painted my flowers with watercolor shades of orange, reds, pinks, and yellows and stood them to dry in a cup before winding and gluing twine to cover the metal stem and attaching the leaves.

Arrange the Flowers on the Wreath

Lay your flowers out on your wreath form, bending to follow the curve of the twig branches and secure with glue. The flowers are so light that I did not wire them to the wreath, but you may wish to do this.

Clear Coat for Protection

Give the entire wreath and flowers a light coat of clear to protect everything from the elements.

Hang and enjoy!

I love how vibrant the colors of the flowers are. The print showing through gives what could be an ordinary wreath so much uniqueness – I’m so excited by how it turned out and can’t wait to hang it on the door. It’s the perfect start to my spring decor!

Fall Braided-Rope and Burlap Door Wreath

A DIY rope-wrapped door wreath with a burlap and rope flower perfect for any time of the year.  

How to Make Rope-wrapped Door Wreath

Hey, everyone! I’m here today with a group of my favorite bloggers for the September Create and Share Challenge. The material we are working with this month is rope. My project is a rope-wrapped door wreath and I’m going to tell you how to make it! Thank you to Stephanie of Casa Watkins and Cat of Pocketful of Posies for sponsoring this challenge every month!


Everyone who knows me, or has visited my blog, knows I love a good wreath. I love to make them for every season, and have selections for Fall, Spring, Summer, and Winter and many others in my arsenal! Still, I do like to change them up – I call it wreath fickleness – and so I’m always looking for new ideas and looks. What I didn’t have in my collection was a rope-wrapped wreath!

wreath ideas - rope and burlap

Rope is an inexpensive and versatile medium for so many different crafts and decorating ideas as you’ll see both here and from my fellow challengers below. Using a foam wreath form, I created my wreath by first braiding three strands of cotton rope and then wrapping the braids around the form using hot glue to secure it.

For further accent, I created twine “lace” by looping and gluing in a line. I love the little bit of bling from the gold filament running through the twine.

To give a clean edge, I braided a jute and twine trim and glued it around the lace rope.

To finish it off I added a burlap ribbon bow and a flower created from hemp rope, accented with a wooden button and upholstery tacks.

I love that this wreath can be used for multiple seasons and both inside and out of my home, giving it tremendous versatility.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and look at my project. I hope you’ll come by again! For now, please be sure to visit the other rope projects for the month and be ready to ooh and ah!
