Ever since Christmas, I have been wanting to make a new wreath for my front door. It seemed so naked after I finally remembered to take it down. There is just something so welcoming when you are approaching the front door and see a lovely wreath. So I didn’t want to spend any money and just wanted see what I could come up with from using things that I already had. After being inspired by all of the wreaths on Pinterest I really wanted to make a wreath with our surname on it or at least the first letter. With that said, I’m sharing a Super Simple Farmhouse Wreath that you can make too!
Super Simple Farmhouse Wreath
- wreath – this was a natural coloured wreath that I dry brushed in Fusion Mineral Paint – Casement
- white hydrangea head
- metal letters – I found these at Decor Steals when they were their daily steal but these rusty style ones from amazon would do the trick or you could use one large one for the first letter of your surname. Let your imagination run wild!
- Jute Ribbon
- Optional- lace for the jute bow
Step 1 – Using the base of the hydrangea head push into the bottom of the wreath to secure. If it feels like the hydrangea is going to fall out, use your hot glue gun to keep in place. As most of the faux hydrangeas come with a long stem I just simply pulled off the head of the hydrangea and discarded the stem.
Step 2 – Laying the letters face down, I used some magic tape to tape the letters together. Then taking the jute, thread through the first letter and fasten to the wreath.
Step 3 – Make a nice big bow with the jute ribbon and attach at the top of the wreath. I added some lace to give the bow some depth.
Handy Hint: I attached the bow with a small peg so that I can remove the bow if I wanted to change the wreath style in the future.
There you have a really simple way to welcome your guests and enjoy when you come home.
