Use a Picture Frame for an Amazing Wreath

Use a Picture Frame for an Amazing Wreath

I love using these IKEA Ung Drill frames for so many home decor projects, but one of my favorites is using these frames as a base for a fantastic wreath.  These frames are so easy to paint and repaint over and over again.  I used Krylon Gloss True blue for this project. I use a piece of a pipe cleaner in an “m” shape, pull a a wire through the styrofoam using the “m” to keep the wire from being pulled all the way through styrofoam.  I attached this piece of 5″ x 4″ styrofoam to the bottom of my frame with the wire I pulled though it.  For more details on how to do this, you can reference my Fall Swag post.  I began with long pieces of florals and berries, securing them in the styrofoam and then wiring the two lengths up the edges of the frame.  Next I began adding my flowers into my floral foam.  I used my steel pick machine to add a steel pick to each stem to make them more secure.When I have all of the florals added that I wanted, the final step will be to add greenery.  Look what a difference just adding some greenery makes.  Flowers don’t grow without leaves, and the addition of the leaves completes the arrangement on the frame.Have you seen what I am doing on Instagram lately?

My patriotic decorations have been packed away for next year and my entry is now ready to greet guests for another month before I go full on Fall!

    Not that you ever really left, but I am sure you understand my meaning.

    I LOVE this wreath. How inspiring you are to take something like a picture frame and make it work on your front door. I also enjoy your step by step instructions as I need someone to lead me by the hand.

    Beautiful front entry.

    Beautiful! Perfect change from the usual front door wreath, and I love the placement instead of say, centering it over the knocker. Light bulbs going off everywhere here, LOL so much inspiration, thanks!

    1. Thank you so much Kelly! I love displaying something that is not the typical wreath!

  9. Beautiful. I check our Habitat for Humanity store frequently for frames U use for various projects with the great grandkids.
