Upcycled Frame Wreath

7 Materials
3 Hours
Have some old frames laying around, don't throw them away!! Instead add a little quality acrylic paint, some pretty flowers, ribbons, and you have an amazing DIY wreath for any occasion!!

Find some old frames you have stashed in your closet, any size and color will do. It is fun when you have different sizes too!

Paint each frame in the colors of your choice, any good acrylic paint works. I chose to do soft pastel colors. Then glue your frames in place with a strong tack glue or hot glue, have fun how to stagger them. I even added in a fun little wooden arrow for a bit of interest.

Gather some fun flowers, I made some by gluing ribbon to cardboard making a swirl pattern and a little center button to the middle.

Add your flowers in clusters to the corners of the frames. Keep in odd numbers of clusters (I did 3), and odd numbers of flowers in the clusters (I did 3, 5, and 7), it is pleasing to the eye. Add in little spray vines you get from the floral department.

Add a banner if you wish, I used my last name, you could also do a first name, "hello", "welcome", really you can say anything or nothing!

This frame can be used inside our outside, your call!!

I chose to place this inside my house on the door under the stairs (coat closet) to help spruce up my house and add a little pretty inside. Not all wreaths have to live outside your front door!! What a fun door makeover!

Here is a tutorial on how to make the frame wreath including the DIY ribbon flowers!!

Now you can place in this fun frame inside or out to help make your doors beautiful!
