For the past week I’ve been working on a bedroom make-over for the ‘Princess’.
She is away studying at the moment, so I have an empty room to work with.
There’s been a little painting going on. . .
some furniture transformations. . .
and yesterday I made a pretty twig wreath.
I planned this quick and easy DIY a few weeks back and started collecting fallen twigs to set aside to dry out.
To make a firm base to attach the twigs to, I simply cut out a 10” ring from a scrap piece of cardboard.
A quick coat of white paint and it was ready to assemble.
Using a hot glue gun to adhere the twigs, I arranged them around the base. . .
overlapping each new layer until I had completed the circle.
A light spray of white paint was applied to the entire wreath. . .
allowing some of the raw wood to show through for a shabby, chippy look.
I liked it as it was. . . but felt it wasn’t quite pretty enough for a Princess,
so I inserted some tiny silk pink and white mini roses in amongst the twigs.
Next I added a vintage lace hanger. . .
and now it’s ready to hang in the ‘Princess’ room.
