Welcome to Creative Friday #7!
Today I am showing you not only how to hang a wreath on your door when a wreath hook won't work but a cute bunny wreath as well.
I have this wreath from last year that I made.
But my front door has molding on it which prevents a wreath hook from laying flat. I've tried command hooks which work ok for lighter wreaths but for my Easter/Spring wreath, they just don't hold. So what's a girl to do?
Well, I have an easy solution! But first, I need to make a second wreath. Why, you ask? Hang on, you'll see in a minute!
I gathered my supplies: a thrifted grapevine wreath, flower sprigs from Hobby Lobby, and a wooden bunny plaque from Target's Spot.
I gave the bunny a coat of grey chalk paint followed by a light coat of white. After the paint dried, I gave the bunny a light sanding to distress it a bit.
Then I glued the bunny on the wreath and tucked the flower sprigs around it. Easy!
Next, I took a pretty green ribbon, cut it about 42",
tied it to the wreath and (here's where I need two wreaths) tied the other end to the first wreath. Next I placed the ribbon over the door, arranging the two wreaths where I wanted them. You can adjust the length of the ribbon if necessary.
Voila! The two wreaths balance each other and the ribbon conforms to the shape of the door, laying flat so that the wreaths hang perfectly!
The new wreath is outside - Hippity hoppity! Spring is here!
I did want this one outside, but last year the birds thought the spanish moss was perfect for their nests and also pecked at the carrots so it's hanging inside.
Not only do I have a cute bunny wreath outside but as an added bonus, I have a cute wreath hanging inside of my door as well!
