Yup another day another wreath. ‘Tis the season after all. For our front door I wanted a large matte simple wreath so when I saw this 50cm beauty at IKEA I grabbed it. And for some reason I only paid £4 for it (instead of £9) so it was clearly meant to be. It’s nice don’t get me wrong but it needed a bit more something and definitely some dark grey to match our front door.
With baubles from a free Facebook group and some Rustoleum chalk paint I already had on the shelf, I set to work. It’s fiddly business and you get your hands dirty but it’s worth it. I painted the attachments as well as I wanted to use them to attach the baubles to the wreath. 2 coats of paint and 1 coat of wax.
To bring the wreath to life I used some more Rustoleum paint I had on the shelf: metallic gold.
This time you get gold fingers! Using some kitchen roll to protect the leaves, I painted the little buds.
I used florist wire to attach the baubles to the wreath once the gold paint was dry. I shaped the wire like a bun pin and then twisted it together on the back side of the wreath.
Et voilà! A few simple changes make this shop bought wreath beautiful.
And the perfect wreath for our grey front door.
