Make Something Monday

23 Jan

I’m sure like all of you, I go through phases. For example, right before my husband and I got married I was on a jewelry kick, then after we got married I went on a wreath kick. Right now, I’m torn between sewing and scrapbooking, but I thought I’d take a break from those and share my wreath collection with you.

This is the first wreath I had ever made.

Can you find the bees? I’ll give you a hint, there’s only three.



It’s my spooky Halloween wreath. 🙂

Isn’t the rake so cute!

I love this puzzle wreath and seriously it’s such an easy wreath. You just need some time.

I got a little carried away with glittery stuff! Christmas just brings that on.

Okay, so I don’t have a tutorial for these because I made them within the last year and half, but if your interested in making the puzzle one for whatever holiday you want, then your in luck because it’s so easy I can explain it without pictures.

Here it goes:


Two Children’s Puzzles  (I got mine at Wal-mart, I think they were 100 pieces each)
Paint (whatever colors you want)
Sponge Brush
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Step One

Cut out a cardboard ring. I think I used a styrofoam wreath to trace around.

Step Two

Paint back sides of all the puzzle pieces. Let them dry. This is the longest part if you can tell.

Step Three

Hot glue them down. Try your best to pick off all the spider webs that come from the glue gun. That’s the most annoying part of it.

Step Four

Hang it somewhere proudly and let everyone admire it!

Is that easy or what! It just takes time to paint them all and then glue them down.

Good Luck!

    You are the queen of wreaths. Seriously, those are FANTASTIC. There is no way my clumsy fingers could create anything so amazing. So I’ll just live vicariously through yours!

    PS. Lovely blog you have over here, will definitely be following along!

    love love love the wreaths! I want to make one, you have such a large variety, for each time of the year and other days in between, so clever and cute!

      Thanx and they’re all really easy to make. Probably the hardest one, was the glittery Christmas one and that’s just because the glittery fruit stems were really hard to bend. 🙂
