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!
