I've been wanting to change up our front door "wreath" for a while now. I say "wreath" because what we currently have is this. It's my interpretation of a wreath. :) You find the details for how to make this here.
I really wanted to just utilize things we already had hanging around. So, I started with a piece of plywood and an old frame. I cut the plywood down to the same size as the opening in the frame. In this case it was 11" x 14". Then I gave it a coat of chalkboard paint and freshened up the frame with some gold spray paint.
Once everything dried, I ran a thin line of hot glue around the inside edge of the frame and popped the plywood into place.
In leui of a traditional bow, I used some gold polka dot ribbon (from Hobby Lobby) and made a ruffle-like pattern in the corner. I used hot glue here to hold the ribbon in place as well.
Then I added a few faux succulents in the corner for something fun.
I love the versatility of it too. You can change the message up for birthdays, holidays, or even to welcome guests. And don't judge my chalk lettering, it's a work in progress!
