Goodwill "Framed" Wreath

Goodwill is always my store of choice when looking to up cycle anything and everything-

So, when I saw this large wooden frame, my first thought was I can make a rustic wreath for the front door-


Starting off with a thrift store frame, any size will work- I chose to make mine vertical vs horizontal because the frame is about 14" x 18".

The next step is to decide if you want to cover the whole wreath or accent a side.
This is one I made covering the whole frame-


so this time, I chose a one sided framed wreath.

I started with green leaves, vines, pods, sticks, and my glue gun!


Little by little, I added more-


I filled the vertical space, up and down







After finishing the side, and hanging it up, I like it hung the horizontal way!  Which way do you like it?

Take care, gotta fly-
