VIM Tries It: Pinterest DIY Wreath

Winter break graces us students with time. Time to sleep in, catch up on shows, leisurely read books and create relaxing crafts. We created a modern take on the holiday wreath this year. Here is how we created this Pinterest DIY.

What You’ll Need:

  • Small to medium embroidery hoop
  • Fishing line or clear string
  • Lace or ribbon
  • A small wooden word
  • Fake leaves
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Mod podge with a sponge (optional)
  • Glitter (optional)

DIY Steps:

  1. Place out where you would like your word to hang from the hoop
  2. Decide if you would like to add glitter.
  3. If you want to add glitter, add mod podge and apply glitter on top of it. Let it dry.
  4. Insert the fishing line/clear wire through your wooden letter.
  5. Tie the wire to the embroidery clasp, making sure the wooden word hangs straight. Use hot glue to make sure the word doesn’t go anywhere.
  6. Cut your desired amount of fake leaves.
  7. Wrap the fake leaves around any part of the embroidery hoop. Add hot glue to certain spots for a better hold.
  8. Cut your desired amount of ribbon to add to the top of the hoop. Loop it through the embroidery hoop, closing the loop with hot glue.
  9. Hang it anywhere you like!

The good thing about this twist on a classic holiday wreath is that you can keep it out all year. If you try this DIY, tag us on social!
