A little Rit Dye, some clothes pins, a wreath form, and a few finishing touches and you have a sunflower wreath. Inexpensive and easy to make!
Time: 2 Days Cost: $8-11 Difficulty: Easy
For this project you'll need:
Rit Dye - I used Lemon Yellow
Brown acrylic paint & paint brush
Bowl or Bucket for dying
Put your clothes pins in a large bowl or bucket.
*For my wreath it is a 14" frame from Dollar Tree and it took 156 clothespins.
Cover the clothespins in water. Add 2 Tablespoons or more of Rit Dye to reach your desired color. Remember to shake the bottle up before pouring.
Paint brown acrylic paint on the the first layer a little over half way. I also made the edges uneven to create that sunflower's center look.
*Optional, if you aren't up for painting, you could use brown Rit Dye and dye the first circle of clothes pins instead. So you'd have an outer layer of yellow, and a center layer of brown clothespins.
Add a burlap ribbon bow, and pull some sunflower heads off a bouquet and hot glue them onto your wreath.
I'll be making this and more items with clothespins on Hometalk's Facebook Live Tuesday, May 30th at 5pm EST.
Materials I used for this project:
- Clothespins (Walmart)
