DIY West Elm Inspired Wreath
These last few days I have been inspired to make some fun things! I saw this adorable and whimsical wreath at West Elm as we were heading into the holiday season. I loved the simplicity and timeless feel, something I wouldn’t get sick of right away. Besides, I’ve had the same wreath on my door for the last two years. I still love the touches of flowers gathered on the side – which I’ve seen a lot of these days. Perhaps it’s time for a change!
I decided to make my little wreath out of white pompoms instead of felt balls. Firstly, because they are easier to find and secondly because they are a lot cheaper! I think they are just as cute – mine even had a little sparkle to them! I also decided to go with a little bottle brush tree instead of a bird. The tree made me think of Christmas back in Canada. Oh, what it would be like having a white Christmas back home.
All you will need for this project is:
12″ Straw Wreath
Pompoms – any color
Hot glue gun and sticks
Any ornaments you choose to add to the wreath
Optional: gold/silver glitter
Simply begin by hot glueing your pompoms onto the wreath. Mix up the sizes and try to make it look a little even (in other words, don’t gather all the small and large ones in one area). This takes a bit of time, so pop in your favorite Christmas movie and craft away! Once you are finished covering the surface of the wreath with your pompoms you can add a a little extra sparkle by sprinkling a little glitter all over your wreath. Not too much, just enough for a little sparkle when the light hits it. Now you can glue your bird, miniature tree , flower or whatever you would like to your wreath! You can buy some pretty ribbon and hang your wreath using a fun pop of color or a glittery piece of ribbon to tie it all together! You can have all sorts of fun with this DIY!
I love how it all turned out. It’s so simple, yet whimsical and playful! How do you feel about this DIY? Would you hang this in your house or on your front door? This post was featured on west elm’s blog: Sunday Press Pass.
