If you are a wreath maker, you just might need one of these! This is one of those projects that I failed to take photos of while I was working on it. Perhaps I wasn’t sure this was even going to turn out! I was lucky to have a couple of old doors left in my garage. Looking at those doors, I knew it would help me if I had a door to make my wreaths and swags on.
A trip to the Home Depot was the first job at hand. They will do simple cuts of lumber for you, which made the lumber a little easier to manage to bring home. Beginning with 2′ x 6’s. I had them cut into 48″ lengths. Eleven pieces would be needed for my project. Three pieces were cut to 28″ lengths. I then screwed the three pieces to the five longer pieces as shown above.
While I had the bottom of my project exposed, I screwed heavy duty casters into each corner.
On the other side I used two 48 ” pieces attached perpendicular to the base I already had. I cut a piece of 1/2″ plywood the same size as the door and screwed it to the back side of the door. Then I slid the door down in the opening and screwed the support pieces into the door and plywood.On the backside of the door, the plywood side, I drilled 40 holes with a 1/2″ drill bit and cut 40 1/2″ dowels. Each dowel was stuck into a hole and secured with a dab of wood glue and I had a perfect place for ribbon storage.
After I had my door and plywood attached to one another, I secured them between the perpendicular upright pieces of 2′ x 6′.
After I inserted my door/ribbon holder I felt it needed a little more stability. I added a 2′ piece of 2 x 6 as shown at the arrow above.
Add a Command hook and you have a base to style wreaths on and all of your ribbons are neatly hidden on the backside!
