Giving your Bellevue home a fresh look is as easy as making a do-it-yourself wreath project. Something as simple as that can do wonders for your home! Wreaths make for great ways to trim doors, walls, windows, or any other area of your home. The downside to store-bought wreaths is that they are expensive, and they might not come in the style that you want. This should be a good sign for you to go with a DIY wreath this season.
Bicycle wheel. Upcycle an old bicycle wheel into a wreath full of vintage fun. Simply twine real or fake evergreen boughs around the rim, then wrap it in a festive red rope or ribbon. A couple of bright bows here and there would really do the trick for an entryway or a door.
Peanut wreath. For a touch of the unconventional, why not create a wreath out of unshelled peanuts? You can use a foam wreath form and glue peanuts in their shells to it. To finish it off, use a burlap ribbon and tie it around the whole thing like a bow.
Cookie cutters. Baking cookies on the holidays is a thing, yes. But, how about we take that up a notch by making a wreath that reflects this season! Start by gluing decorative paper to the back of several cookie cutters. Then, glue the cookie cutters into a circular shape. Finally, use a pretty ribbon on it and hang it for a wonderful sight anywhere inside your home.
Wine corks. Have you been wondering what to do with the wine bottle corks in your stash? If so, turn them into a fun wreath for the holidays! Using a straw or twig wreath form, simply glue your corks in concentric circles to cover. You can then use floral wire to fasten sprigs of evergreen and bright holly berries to finalize the look.
Sheet music. You could also mix and match your wreath with the concept of holiday music so that you get musical holiday vibes! Take a couple of torn sheets of music, twist or curl them so that they can be glued together in a circular shape. Add some colorful paper rosettes to the inner ring to craft the perfect musical decoration for your home.
PVC pipe. Not just for plumbing, PVC pipe can be used to make a unique wreath for your home! Simply cut different sizes of PVC pipe into thin sections, then glue them together (with open sides facing outward) into a circular arrangement. After spray painting the pipe a pretty gold or another color, fill the openings of the pipes with colorful ornaments for a festive decoration.
Socks. Look around your laundry room for old or single socks. Before you throw them out, why not try to reuse them by turning them into a wreath? With the use of embroidery hoops, you can trace out a wreath onto a foam core. Afterward, cut out the form and wrap it with your socks, making sure to use glue to hold everything together. Then, fit the whole thing back inside the embroidery hoops and decorate.
Ties. If you have a bunch of neckties lying around, you can also use those to make a holiday wreath. You can wrap and pin the neckties onto a foam wreath form of any kind. And then, glue the loose ends to the back of the form to hold them firm. With some leftover fabric, you can add the finishing touches by crafting a bow to complete your wreath that’s dressed to impress.
