Wooden Seasonal Wreath

I decided to make my Mom a wreath for her birthday. I found one on Instagram that I liked and I thought to myself “I can make that!” So off to Lowe’s I went for lumber.

1/4″ pine plywood and sanding paper were all I needed to get started.

Complete supply list:

  • 1/4″ pine plywood
  • Template for wreath and seasonal pieces
  • Jigsaw
  • Hand-sander
  • Sand paper (I used 120 grit)
  • Drill and drill bit
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Cricut vinyl cutter
  • Black vinyl
  • Velcro
  • Paint sealer (Rustoleum clear enamel spray)
  • Burlap ribbon and coordinating ribbon

Once back home I traced out the wreath shape using a projector and an image I found that I liked. I did the same for all the seasonal pieces. Once I had everything traced, it was off to the garage to try my hand with a jigsaw!

I cut out the wreath, as well as all the smaller seasonal pieces. Then I sanded them all down using an electric hand-sander and sand paper. I also drilled two holes in the wreath to add twine to hang the wreath from.

Now comes the fun part, painting!

I started painting the wreath. I painted it grey and stenciled circles around it and painted them white. I did a couple coats of each.

Then I started painting the smaller seasonal pieces. I only did the closest holidays and seasons, because I knew I wouldn’t be able to make them all in time to give them to my Mom for her birthday. I will make those at a later date.

I made the ‘Welcome’ letters using my Cricut. I love my Cricut. It is awesome and a fun toy to play with!

I put the letters on the painted wooden wreath. Then I took it outside and sprayed it with a clear sealant spray. I also sealed the painted seasonal pieces once they were painted.

I added Velcro to the wreath and the back of each of the seasonal pieces. Made a bow using burlap and ribbon.Threaded twine through the drilled holes and tied the ends in knots. And Viola! The wreath is complete.

This was such a fun project and it was a perfect gift for my Mom’s birthday! How pretty does that look on the door!

Hope you enjoyed!
