House Number Wreath

A few weeks ago, I made a new wreath for our front door, but wanted to do something different — instead of merely making the wreath, I added our house’s number to it to include a little personal touch.  Here’s how to make your own!  
First, start with a large oval grapevine wreath.
Our front door is red, so I added two red dahlias to one side of the wreath, alternated with two white peonies for contrast.

My mom also made me a silver bow using two different kinds of ribbon.

Then, I glue-gunned our house’s numbers to the opposite side of the wreath.  Similar wooden numbers can be found for $2-3 at any craft store. 

Finally, to add a little pizzazz, I painted the numbers with two coats of a metallic silver craft paint.

All done!  Easy, right?
A few details:

I absolutely love how this wreath turned out, and I have to admit, it’s probably my favorite wreath to date.  You can see the numbers well from the road and I feel that they add a special touch to our home.

Hope you love it as much as I do!
