My Lunchtime DIY Door Wreath
Hello Friends and welcome to the blog today.
IT’S THE WEEKEND!
Happy Happy Friday gorgeous and how are you! I hope you’re doing well, getting outside, staying hydrated, checking in with friends and family, and living well.
It’s been a low-key week with not too much going on. I got a chance to go to Michael’s this week and spend my time browsing the isles without many people in the store or needing to be someplace. This brings me to my DIY today.
I was going to make a modern door wreath or a cake platter but the wood was on sale so that won out. When I’m deciding on what DIY I want to make I want to ensure that this piece will actually get used. So I wanted something that was clean and modern, with no flowers or ribbons.
This was literally a “lunchtime” DIY and took me all of 45 minutes from start to finish including drying time. So enough explaining …let me show you how I did this and how it turned out.
Modern Door Wreath
Black chalk paint
My design was simple. I wanted to color-block this piece because just white letters on light wood didn’t provide enough contrast. So I used my frog tape to block out where I wanted my black paint.
I painted this plaque which took about 10 minutes for 2 coats and 15 minutes to dry. Gotta love chalk paint.
Frog tape gives you a nice clean line with minimal bleeding.
Here …I’m lining up my letters. I thought about using glue but with the velcro, I can change up the message at any time.
Once I put the velcro on I placed the letters according to my tape line and that’s it. All done!
I’ve hung the plaque on my front door but I have to figure out a better way to hang it other than my wreath hanger because it bangs every time the door is open or closed. There are two hooks on the back so I may get some smaller command hooks and use those.
I think it turned out great, and it’s just wanted I wanted. Something clean, simple, and modern. For this DIY I spent a total of $23.00 vs. $40-$65 for a brand new wreath. I love this pampas grass wreath from Aflorel, but not the $58 dollar price tag.
