DIY: Springtime Color Block Wreath

by - Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Hey hey hey!  I wanted to share a really quick DIY that I did for my spring home tour.  I love grapevine wreaths for their versatility and ease, you can use them as is, or embellish as much as you want---and can very rarely go wrong.   Lately I've been going for more simplistic vibe and decided that for my spring wreath I wanted to jazz up one of my basic grapevine wreaths.

 I first attempted this DIY after being inspired by a wreath that I saw on the Better Homes & Gardens website.

 Seriously, how cute is this?  A wreath wrapped with thread!?

I automatically thought to myself, How hard could it be?  Welp . . . Not hard at all, but truth is, there is a certain level of patience needed in order to take on a project like this.  As usual, I attempted this project with items I had on hand . . . and sometimes that just does not work .  Mainly because it was very tedious!  I attempted to create this project using regular thread when in actuality I should've used yarn or better yet . . . embroidery thread.

I began wrapping some thread around, and around, and around, and quickly realized I did not have the patience for that at that moment--After failing at that attempt, I decided it would be easier to just go ahead and pull out my craft paint and painter's tape to attempt the look.

All I had to do was decide on my color scheme and the width of my sections.  I created a few different wreaths using this technique, some for the interior of my house and one for our front door.

Once I accomplished this, all that was left to do was paint and let dry.  I alternated between a paintbrush and a simple q-tip to apply the paint to the sections.

And this resulted in (several) super cute color-blocked DIY  wreaths, just in time for spring!

Kinda cute? and understated, right?  I kinda love 'em!
