wreath wall

If you are a long time reader, you will know that I love making wreaths and using them around the house year round. With the holidays in full swing I wanted to have a little fun with decorating so I decided a wreath accent wall would be a fun way to get festive but instead of traditional colors and style of wreaths I transformed everyday things into some fast, simple and pretty wreaths for the wall!

tinsel wreath: wrap tinsel around a wreath form and you have simple wreath with lots of sparkle.

yarn wrapped wreath: wrap a wreath form with colorful yarn.

butcher paper flowers wreath: I created a simple version of my butcher paper wreath from a few years ago.

wrapping paper wreath: wrap a wreath form with wrapping paper.

gold leaves wreath: spray paint leaves to transform them into something chic and festive.

TIP: There are all kinds of things that can be used for a wreath form- styrofoam, wire, embroidery hoop (my favorite) even cardboard.

p.s. Today, Monday is the last day to save $10 off all my online classes!

I'm so excited to see this post, those wreaths are so AWESOME!! I can't even pick a favorite, love them all.
Of course with your white wall these look especially wonderful. I was thinking of a wreath and mini tree kinda theme this year. I have the perfect wall for wreaths but it's painted a funky rusty orange I guess. Will take some of these ideas though, love the tinsel and I remember making the paper flower one last year in your Holiday class.

I do have a question though, how did you use the wrapping paper? I can't see it very well and wrapping paper tears so easily. Would love to know more on that one. THANK YOU!

I can't wait to go play now, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!!

Oh and the pictures on the bench were so sweet too.
