If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times. I am not a traditional wreath girl. I am not the one searching for a flowery wreath to hang on our front door. Don’t get me wrong, I think they are pretty, but I love finding “outside of the box” wreath ideas. If you saw our Christmas Home Tour this year, you saw something a little different than a wreath on our front door. Christmas wreaths are a lot of fun because they can be made so many different ways. These DIY Faux Reclaimed Wood Wreaths were simple to do and turned out great! They aren’t traditional and you won’t believe how they started out.
While making a quick stop at my local Restore, I found four round wood pieces. I immediately thought of wreaths and put them in my cart. The work was already done. Someone had cut the shape so I just had to breathe “wreath-life” into them.

To start, I painted the outside edge and the inside edge in “Picket Fence” from Fusion Mineral Paint.
Then, I grabbed my Reclaimed Wood Photo Back Drop roll of paper to decoupage on the front. This photo back drop if great for photos, but it has been great for projects too. It drastically changed my Country White End Tables. The paper roll is very inexpensive for the amount of paper on it. I know it is made for photo back drops, but this repurposing girl can’t leave things alone. If I can get great paper at a low price to make my projects easier, I am all over it. I do have another roll that I only use for photos, but believe me, I will be purchasing a new roll to use on projects once I run out.
When the glue dried, I used a Xacto knife to cut around the edges of the wreaths.
I hung three of the wreaths in our family room and the fourth one ended up in the play room we are working on.
As always, I had so much fun decorating this little spot to go with the new wreaths.
I shopped our home and brought things together that we already had.
I am a little obsessed with copper twinkle lights. They are great all year round, but especially around the holidays. They make everything come to life.
The DIY wood candlesticks we made for our Thanksgiving tablescape look so great in this vignette and play off the faux reclaimed wood wreaths.
This project was so easy to do. The longest part of it was waiting for the glue to dry. Restore is a great place to visit when you have time. Just like a thrift store or yard sale, you never know what you will find.
Would you have picked up these round wood pieces? What would you have done with them?
