I’ve been searching high and low for a neutral farmhouse wreath that I could keep in my home all year long. I had a few requirements as well. It needed to be large, and full of texture with many different materials incorporated in it. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a one that fit my criteria, so the result is my ultimate DIY farmhouse wreath.
So, what do I do? I make a neutral farmhouse wreath of my own.
The great thing about this farmhouse wreath is that all the items that I used in it were already in my home and are probably in yours as well.
The Ultimate DIY Farmhouse Wreath
Here are the things I used to make my DIY farmhouse wreath:
- Straw wreath form
- white poster board
- strips of fabric
- hot glue gun
- butcher paper
I really wanted this DIY farmhouse wreath to be a beefy, substantial wreath. When I am looking to add farmhouse decor ideas, I like to incorporate a lot of texture, and dimension.
Start with a plain straw wreath form.
I took about 10 feet of brown butcher paper and twisted it up into a rope type structure.
Now, wrap it around the straw wreath form making sure to cover the entire wreath. I hot glued the ends and made sure the paper was secure on the wreath form.
Next, take your strips of fabric ( I used strips of canvas drop cloth about 2 inches wide ), and wrap it randomly around the wreath, hot gluing it wherever it needs to be secured.
Once that is done, I took my white poster board, and I cut it into approximately 1 1/2 inch strips. I then randomly wrapped the strips of paper around the wreath.
I made sure to cross the paper and keep it loose to add more volume to the farmhouse wreath.
Now that the paper has been applied to the farmhouse wreath, I applied my rope.
I hot glued the end of the rope and then wrapped it around the wreath, keeping the placement slightly random, as to not look to perfect. There is perfection in imperfection.
This DIY farmhouse wreath is done baby!
By using things that we generally would not think of using, it has created an amazing amount of texture and interest to the wreath.
I have moved this wreath around a bit, and really love it in my farmhouse living room. I layered it on top of a large basket that I found at a thrift store. Its great farmhouse wall decor.
I love working on DIY projects in my home and this simple DIY farmhouse wreath was really quite easy and is the perfect wreath to keep around all year long.
Is this a DIY project that you would make for your home? I think it may be a little out of the box, but it has all the features that I love. Neutral decor, farmhouses style, full of texture, and using regular items to create something beautiful.
