Wooden Glitter Wreath With Wooden Petals

Earlier this month, my husband and I had to run into Home Depot for lightbulbs and somehow, I ended up in the Christmas clearance aisle.

Funny how that happens.

Isn't it?

I mean, really, the last thing I need right now is more Christmas decor, but the pull was strong, so I peeked.

Anyhoo...among the marked down tree timers and red stickered Island of Misfit Toys lawn ornaments was a very sweet Home Accents Wooden Shell Wreath.

Hmmm.

A little bit rustic and a teeny bit glam, it was different, so I went in for a closer look.

With a sale price of about ten bucks, when the original tag said thirty, it was a no brainer. A bargain, even if it only lasted one season.

I told my husband it would be the perfect winter accent for the front door and placed it in the cart.

On the way to check out, I explained how it would bridge the gap between Christmas and Valentine's Day and would look stunning with all that natural wood and glitter popping against the black paint and silver hardware.

I was convinced I had a curb appeal winner.

However, once I brought it home, something in me needed to try it out in the kitchen. I had just taken down all the trees and put away the Santas and I was craving a more muted palette.

Wreath On Kitchen Hood

It was a bit shocking since my glorious red hydrangea wreath has served as a bold focal point mounted to my hood, well, forever. Was I really going to replace it with something so...bland?

Valentine Love Puzzle Piece Garland

Turns out, yes. Yes I was.

As soon as I hung it up, I knew it was right. I'd been looking for a change in this room for quite a while now and in addition to the new drapes and the kitchen sink skirt, a cleaner look in the stove area was just what the space needed.

A touch of winter white.

Farmhouse Kitchen Decor

I love the aesthetic and the light, airy, fresh feeling it gives to the whole room and I'm totally smitten with my new neutral vibe.

Now, like I said, I bought mine. However, I've been eyeing this baby for a few weeks and I think it'd be pretty easy to make.

The construction is very basic.

I would start by purchasing some of those elongated wooden ice cream spoons (like these). You know, the ones that normally come with those little cups of chocolate and vanilla.

Then I would coat the tip of each one in a shimmery white (like this) or clear glitter and I would stick the other end into a flat styrofoam wreath frame (like this one).

That's literally all they did.

How To Make A Wooden Floral Wreath

Yes, their petals, or shells as the box says, are a little arched, but I don't think that would make a huge difference. If that did bother you, you could use actual wooden spoons, but you'd have to cut some of the handle off.

Of course, while I've been typing this out and investigating supplies, my curiosity has gotten the better of me and I think I'm going to have to make one of these to see if it really works.

Unless one of you beats me to it! And if you do, by all means, please, let me know.

In the meantime, I know you're all wondering, where exactly is my beloved red hydrangea wreath hiding? Well, it didn't get very far. In fact, I haven't even been able to take it out of the kitchen.

I'm just a little attached. Can you tell?

It's on the Deacon's bench, across from my desk. Waiting.

For a well deserved sprucing.

For winter to end.

And spring to arrive.

So it can reclaim its rightful spot on the hood.

Because it's still tops in my heart. ❤️

Did you find anything fabulous in the after Christmas bins?

  1. Ohhhh I love the new wreath on the hood. That looks awesome. You could even use your red wreath on your door for Valentines decor. With that said I do like it on the bench. It is amazing how one little change up can make a big impact. Lookin good. Happy Thursday.

  3. Oh Kim I love the new wreath on your hood. I'm to chicken or maybe lazy to see if your idea works for the wreath. When you make one and give the tutorial I'll be reading 😏

    Have a great day my friend!

  8. When I saw the blog title I was so excited....a tutorial I thought! Yes, someone needs to make this wreath. I saw them at Lowes & loved them but not at full price. Even though it looks simple to make it does look time consuming to me. I do so love it!

    I love the red wreath too. I would keep both to change out when your mood changes. The red wreath would make a gorgeous centerpiece on your table with a big pillar candle sitting in the middle of it.

    1. I really want to give it a try, Jenny. I tell you, they don’t make it easy. I scoured the internet looking for those wooden petals, or shells as they call them, but I couldn’t find anything close. I know years ago, plastic spoon wreaths were big, but this is a little different. I ordered my supplies, so I will definitely keep you posted…and yes, time consuming indeed. Wish me luck! Also, I love the idea of keeping the wreath on the table with a candle. Genius. And done. Thank you!!

  14. Kim,
    I chuckled when I saw this post!! I save these wooden ice cream spoons from the little cups of ice cream we buy for our family dinners....They are our dessert..I finally got a chance to use them this year and made 2 Christmas trees with them and now you have given me an idea on how to use the rest of them!! Looking forward to seeing how yours comes out if you make one before I do and if I do one first, I will let you know how mine comes out!!
    Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!
    Hugs,
    Debbie

    1. Oh please do, Debbie! It's on my list and my supplies have arrived. I just have to make the time. And I saw your trees. Beautiful. Maybe with the 1,000 spoons I ordered, I'll have enough leftover to make one of my own! 😉

  15. I can relate to shopping at Home Depot or Lowe's with my husband and just wondering off to do the same thing. I like the wreath and it looks great in the kitchen. I know you could make one just like it. The red wreath would look great on your LR fireplace or on your front door. :)

    1. Thanks Julie...and yes, I can't stand the plumbing and electrical aisles, so I venture off to see if I can find anything home decor related. Most times, my wallet is safe, we don't need another fridge, but at Christmas or gardening time, it's trouble! Ha!

  17. What a pretty wreath, Kim, and perfect for winter and after the holidays!! I think we all need a break from color after Christmas....I always tone it down until Spring.

  21. I love the new wreath, Kim. I love pale and calm colors for winter, I suppose they work best with a snowy white winter (which we do not have) but they are nice here as well. I was a bit worried about the hydrangea wreath, good to know that you found a place for that as well. I hope both wreath can play nicely together.

    1. No worries, Amelia, she is close to me at all times. She still hasn't moved from the bench near my desk. It's actually been nice to have her at eye level for a bit. 😉
