Framed Wreath

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.

Framed Wreath -how to make a wreath in frame,

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...

Framed Wreath - grapevine wreath, wreath in a thrifted frame, ribbon wrapped, wreath, chalk paint frame,

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.

  1. I love it Cathy! It truly makes me smile :-)

  2. Love this project. I tried making a wreath once, and it was an epic failure. I like that this one is inside a frame. Really love the look!

  3. Cathy you're so creative! You make such the cutest things! Love it!

  4. What a great idea to fill up an empty space above the sink. My sink is in our island, and overlooks the family room, but I have always wanted my kitchen sink to have a window to look out. Thanks for sharing such a great craft!!

  5. It's so fresh and clean. The blue and yellow are perfect for spring.

  6. Really great idea to make the wreath pop!

  7. So pretty! I love using old frames in crafts.

  8. Cathy - What a cheerful and bright little wreath! Love it in the frame. You could not help but smile when you see that. I am new to your blog and your newest follower.


  9. The wreath is beautiful. It would brighten up any room. I love simple craft like this that are so lovely.
