Beaded Spring Wreath

Hi Friends, Mindi here, from MyLove2Create.  I am happy to be back at Oh My! Creative.  I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for spring….it just isn’t coming fast enough!

I decided to make a Beaded Spring Wreath to brighten my spirits, since it was snowy and cold this morning.  Do you think subliminal messages work with the weather?  “Think green, think Spring!!”

Beaded Spring Wreath

Even if the weather isn’t going to listen, at least I have a fun wreath now!  Let me show you how to make one, it is pretty simple.

Wreath form and gorilla tape

I started with this wreath I had in my craft stash.  I needed it white, so I grabbed some Gorilla tape, and wrapped it around the whole thing.

Repurpose beads for wreath

I wandered around looking for something to cover it with.  I ended up remembering these car seat cushions that my father-in-law gave me.  He never used them because the thread holding all the beads together was falling apart.  So of course he thought of me!  And of course I would use them for something eventually…which happened to be today!

Hot glue beads to wreath

I started on the outside and hot glued them in rows.  When I got to the front of the wreath, I started adding some of the brown beads to add some color.

Wrap ribbon around wreath

Once all the beads were glued on I grabbed some ribbon, and wrapped and glued it on.  Then I made a bow for the front.

All done!

So do you have any beads laying around?  This is a great way to repurpose them!
