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!
