Next on the list of DIY’s for the wedding was something for our sweetheart table. I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, and I thought it would be a great way to add a personal touch to our seat backs. I designed the wreath so that it would connect to the backs of our chairs by two ribbons. The “Myers” accent was made the same way as my Christmas stocking accents. (In case you haven’t seen the post, check it out here! It’s really easy.)
Heart Wreath shape: $4 with a coupon at Joann’s Fabrics
Assorted sprigs and decorations that match your theme: I used 5 cranberry sprigs and a white cranberry branch, total $5
Hot glue gun
I’m not going to lie, I have never made a wreath before. So if there were specific ways that I was supposed to wrap the ribbon and cranberries around the heart form then I’m pretty sure I did it wrong. But hey, it stayed put in the end and didn’t turn out too bad. 🙂 I just secured the cranberries with glue and covered the wire with ribbon. You could still see the gaps when I finished, so I covered them with pieces of the white berries. Its pretty self explanatory and very easy. The finished wreath was so cute and festive! I can’t wait to see it on the back of our chairs. Also when we get our first home, I want to put it on our door or mantle.
Obviously this could be recreated in your choice of color scheme by using fake flowers or different colored ribbon!
