Looking for an easy colorful way to decorate warm weather patio celebrations?
All you need is a wreath form and a bag of drink parasols (found at party supply stores).
Family Chic shows additional photos. While she didn't use glue, I do recommend that if you're using this outdoors, I would definitely hot glue in the umbrellas. Those umbrellas wouldn't last long in a thunderstorm.
You can coordinate the colors of parasols used for any celebrations... red, white and blue for July 4th, etc.
Also, this would make a great centerpiece lying flat on a table. Fill the center with a floral arrangement or if your wreath is large enough, place a pitcher of margaritas in the middle.
Yes, I know. The turkey hasn't been carved yet. But when you go to the trouble of putting a few trees up and hand crafting decor, you want to take your time, have fun with the process and enjoy the finished work. So we're starting now. With this 6.5 ft white beauty I recently purchased from my friends at Goodwill. It was a STEAL and I was thrilled to get it because I wanted a white tree for this year's theme... Keaton's Candy Cane Christmas!
Stay tuned.. I'll be sharing how I make the decor including many re-purposed Goodwill finds as well as showing you how to create a ribbon wall, a table skirt, large faux candy canes, bunting, and fun (and surprisingly beautiful) decor out of coffee filters... and more!
I love this idea and it's on my massive to do list for my son's room. A toy wreath!
If you're a parent, you probably have more than your share of little trinket toys. Happy meal toys, things bought with Chuck E. Cheese tickets, etc. Ya know, the small toys that completely fill up the bottom of your toy box?
How about turning them into a decorative wreath? All you need is a wreath form and hot glue!
This would be a great addition to a birthday party as well. Cover a wreath in super heros or another toy theme! Don't have enough toys to pull it off? Hit Goodwill! My Goodwill features bins where you can fill up a bag of toys for $2.99.
Did you see the Kentucky Derby this past weekend? Did you happen to see the gorgeous rose garland that is presented at the end?
The Kroger Company has been the official floral sponsor of the Kentucky Derby for years and their florists create this beautiful garland each year. This year's garland was created out of almost 600 red roses. The florists HAND SEW each rose onto a satin blanket. Gorgeous! I kept looking at it thinking, "what an amazing table runner THAT would be!!!" Wouldn't it be gorgeous at Christmas?
Christy at Embellished Bayou saw an amazing curling ribbon wreath at a boutique, turned around and made her own for next to nothing! Makes a great entry for any celebration! So easy to make! Just staple curling ribbon onto a wreath form! Visit her blog to see the tutorial and the original boutique wreath.
These can be made in any color combination for any holiday, etc. Fourth of July, Halloween, Easter, Christmas, in school colors for graduation, etc.
This wreath also would make a great addition to a centerpiece. Stick a candle or vase of flowers in the middle!
