Well a change of season at my house means a change of wreath for my front door! Earlier this year I shared our Easy Fall Moss Wreath, and now for winter I’ve swapped it out for this DIY Flocked Wreath that was so easy to update and the result was just so amazing that I knew I had to share it with all of you!
I’ve created and updated plenty of wreaths over the years but this one may be one of my favorites! I’ve been seeing a lot of white this winter and I love it! Living in Phoenix, we don’t get any snow so we have to incorporate that fresh, chilly winter feeling in other ways – an easy way being decor. So a flocked wreath it was. But I wasn’t loving the price tag on all the finished flocked wreaths I found in home decor stores so I set out to update a simple evergreen wreath (just $10 at the local craft store) with just a few easy steps!
What you’ll need:
- Evergreen wreath
- 2 bottles white craft paint
- White/iridescent glitter
- Paint brush
And the steps:
- Pour your white craft paint into a small bowl or ramekin.
- Dip your paint brush in the paint and “pounce” the paint brush onto the wreath, covering just a small section with your desired level of “snow”.
- While that section is wet, sprinkle with glitter so that it sticks to the paint.
- Continue in small sections, covering the rest of the wreath.
Once the wreath is covered, simply let dry for a few hours. Once it’s dry, I would recommend taking it outside and giving it a good shake. Get all that extra glitter that didn’t adhere off of the wreath and not on the inside of your home!
And after just an afternoon of crafting fun, you have a gorgeous DIY Flocked Wreath that you made for a fraction of the cost of one from a fancy decor store! And let me tell you, up close you cannot tell the difference! I spent forever just admiring the wreath – I can’t believe I haven’t done this sooner!
