Red Front Door Wreath

Front Door Wreath




Inexpensive and Easy to Make 
I love wreaths, and this one is my favorite. Fun to make and once you add an item, or two it looks great for all occasions
 
Here is what you need:
18" Grapevine wreath
4 Yards of Material or Burlap. Pick a color your like, and a material that doesn't fray
Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Cut material using square pattern. 
Material Pattern 4" Square:


Fold material in half, then half again. Trim corner of material. Add hot glue to the bottom of the material and add to wreath. As you add another row hot glue the sides of the material together (if you don't want to see the grape vine through the material).



 






 
 Add wire to the back of your favorite Holiday Decor, to change the look for all occasions. It's fun how quickly the look can be changed by adding new d├ęcor!



 



Directions for the X and O:


You need:
X wooden letter
O wooden letter
hot glue gun
White craft paint
I added the X and an O covered in rolled roses so for the ever so cute Valentines theme.
1. Start by painting the X and O white. Great projects for kids!
 



2. Take 1/2" white ribbon, and your hot glue gun.  Start by rolling the ribbon small add a little dot of hot glue to keep it together.  Keep putting a little hot glue on the bottom of the rose as you turn the rose.  Periodocially add a extra amount of ribbon before going around the rose.  This gives it the "rose look."
