I thought I would bring you a quick little project today.
I have seen framed wreaths of all sorts in lots of places lately
and have fallen in love with them.
They are so cute and they looked simple enough to make
so, I decided to make one for myself.
This quick, sweet little project was so easy
I knew you all would love it also.
So, I am sharing my version of
the framed wreath.
I have been in the process of redoing our kitchen for
oh, about 3 months now.
I am close to done but, still have a few projects to finish.
We have a hallway kitchen with very few walls
we rent - so no major renovation.
But, finding little things to bright up this windowless expanse of space
has been difficult at best.
One of those areas is the space right above our sink.
Bare, dark and oh so ugly...
When I am doing dishes - I am looking at a blank wall.
I wanted something bright and cheerful there to look at instead.
I thought about different things I could put there
water gets splashed up there occasionally
I needed it to be fairly durable.
So after, much debating I came up with this framed wreath.
Isn't it cute...
This is a thrifted frame I had on hand that I painted with DIY white chalk paint first.
I took a little 6-8 inch grapevine wreath I had
wrapped it with a pretty little blue with brown polka dot ribbon I had on hand.
I made a bow out of the same ribbon
along with a little touch of yellow (our kitchen is now yellow),
added a bird I had and look how Springy it is.
Then I hung the wreath from the side of the frame with a piece of the blue ribbon.
I love how cheerful it is and how it brightens up that dull, lifeless space
I had to stare at every day.
Plus, it's totally durable if water gets splashed on it.
It kinda reminds me of looking through a "small" kitchen window
watching the birds outside.
I find it isn't so bad standing there now
as I have something pretty cute to look at
it was simple, easy and cost me nothing to do.
