My Fall Wreaths

Note: This is an extra post over and above my 31 Days to an Organized Home series. If you are looking for today's Organizing post, click here.
A few of you have commented on the wreaths around my home, so I decided to share with you how they were made and the blogs that inspired them.


The first is a bubble wreath with a twist:  I used dish clothes.  It hangs happily in my kitchen near my sink and makes me smile.

I started by making a foam wreath form out of pipe insulator.  I got the idea from this site.


I wrapped the foam in some white bed sheet cloth left over from my DIY throw pillows and then followed the directions on this site to make the bubble wreath.


On my pantry door there is a simple square burlap wreath.


It is basically just cloth folded back and forth over a wire coat hanger.  The silver teaspoons were a last minute stroke of genius that I love. Click here for those instructions.



Thanks so much for stopping by the Complete Guide to Imperfect homemaking!

Have you made a wreath from anything a little bit unusual lately?

  1. Thank you for posting this! When I came over via Pinterest for your 31 days, one of the first things I noticed was the wreathes in your kitchen. I looked all over for an easy way to make them, with not much luck, so I'm glad that you put up this post!
    My pantry door looks JUST like yours, and I'm thinking that square wreath would be perfect!!! Love it! Thank you!
