DIY Decorative Door Wreath

I must admit I do feel a bit patriotic lately  but this shouldn't come as a surprise if you only had a look at my entrance door wreath! ;)







I've seen many beautiful wreaths on Pinterest and I made one for myself - simple yet nice! I hope you like it!

What you need if you want to make a decorative wreath :

- hot glue gun;
- 40m of twine;
- 1 Polystyrene ring (I used one of 25 cm Æ)
- 1.5/2m of ribbon - the pattern you like ;)

I have seen many pins talking about using pipe insulation since it is cheaper - I would stick with my polystyrene ring because it doesn't bend or crease, but if you want to use pipe insultation,you better follow The Penny Parlor's suggestion!

Back to wreath instructions:

Glue the twine cord around the ring like this:




In the process I had left some white spaces due to the form of the ring - I adjusted everything by overlapping some cord like this:




After you've covered the whole ring, you can choose how to decorate your wreath, I have made a simple bow like this:

and glued it to the wreath.

I used the remaining ribbon as a hanger for the door :




I hope I have inspired you a little!

Until next time,
Daniela
