I love wildy looking wreaths, do you?
I see so many fabulous ones out there in the blogging world and each one gets my own creative juices flowing!!! I have wreaths hanging outside my home and inside my home and love the welcoming feeling they give to most any room. The one at the the top once graced the door to my studio. It's branchy on the inside and I love the twisty, twirly looking tendrils going every which way. In the center of this wreath there is actually another wreath. It's a small heart shaped one with three pink roses at the base. Love how they look married together! I got tired of knocking the thing off the door so I decided to move it to our pink accented guestroom. I have it hanging on this metal thingy I snagged at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago...
This wreath was fun to make and pretty easy to take on! It hangs in our second guestroom...the one with the palest blue walls you've ever seen! Another trip to the world's most favorite craft store (Hobby Lobby) to buy a grapevine heart shaped beauty in it's natural twig color. I LIGHTLY coated this one with flat white paint on both sides (the cheap stuff from Wal-Mart) and then gently distressed it with sand paper. Next I took two branchy style twig stems (again from HL) and cut them apart. No tools needed I just pulled them out from the main stem. I tucked each wildy looking piece underneath the grapevine wrappings and that was it! The creamy white roses were salvaged from a vintage millinery hat, but you can find something similar at your neighborhood craft place! It hangs on the front of a vintage window which is over the bed.
Neither of the wreaths are very original...I'm sure they've been done before. Just thought I'd give you a little peek at the two rooms I'll be showing you soon. The blue room is FINALLY completely done and I can't wait to show you the changes. The beige, soft white and pink room has also been reworked so more pics of that room are coming soon as well!
I'm back working in my studio today...I'll be visiting around later this evening!
Tomorrow begins a brand new giveaway!
Love to you...
