I love taking thrift store finds and making them new again. This wreath was an old picture frame I found at Goodwill and with a little paint, felt beads and hot glue- Its an adorable holiday door decoration!
You Will Need...
- old picture frame, mardi gras beads, felt, ribbon, paint and glue
Step 1: First, Paint your wreath. Inspired by this pin, I made the heart garland for the wreath. To make the heart garland, Cut felt so you have two 3 x 8 pieces. Stack and sew along one long side. Bring opposite ends around so that the side you just sewed is in the middle and it takes the shape of a heart. Sew along the ends to close the heart. Cut in 3/4 inch sections. Take a length of thin ribbon and a needle with a large eye and string the garland. You need to bring the needle through each side, catching the middle so the heart keeps it's shape on the string.
Step 2: As for the rest of the wreath, I just strung the beads across the back and used hot glue and tacks to help secure them in place.
Step 3: I placed a hook on the opposite side of the door to hold the wreath in place.
