Hello friends! Summer is here, which means it’s time for a decor switch! If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I change out my decor about five to six times a year, and that can be expensive. Making your own decor that looks high-end can save you tons. Today I’m sharing an easy coastal farmhouse wreath made from a Dollar Tree wood bead wreath form. This quick and easy wreath can be made in 3 easy steps, so let’s get into it!
Sara of Birdz of a Feather. If you’ve come over from Tammy over at Patina and Paint, welcome! I’m so glad to have you here. Wasn’t her summer watermelon sign adorable?! She’s so talented, just like the other bloggers on today’s hop. Stick around after the post and I will send you off to see the next amazing creative craft!
Coastal Wood Bead Wreath Supplies:
wood bead wreath form
1.5″ wired ribbon
pipe cleaners or floral wire
lamb’s ear garland or stems
Attach lamb’s ear garland to the wood bead wreath.
Fold the end of the garland back so that the hanger portion is at the middle of the wreath. That will leave you with a doubled over section. You want the doubled over section to be about 5″ long.
Add a coastal piece to the wreath.
Dollar Tree has all kinds of coastal decor this year, so finding something cute to add to your coastal farmhouse wood bead wreath for cheap should be pretty easy. I used one of their large sand dollars to cover the metal part of my wreath, but a starfish or sailboat would work as well.
Hot glue a piece of pipe cleaner, bent in half, to the back of the sand dollar, then use it to attach it to the coastal wood bead wreath.
Make & attach a bow.
Since this coastal wood bead wreath is not huge, I used a 1.5″ wired ribbon to make a bow for it. You can use a ribbon from Dollar Tree if you want to keep this a really cheap project, but I used one from Hobby Lobby. It was only $3 with a coupon, so this project was still well under $10 for me.
I made a simple 6 loop bow and attached it to the top coastal wood bead wreath. If you need a tutorial, you can see how I did it in the tutorial video. I ran out of space during the video, so it cuts off when I start to fluff the bow, but you can see me make the entire bow up until that point.
