DIY Vintage 70’s Wreath

This is the super fun DIY vintage 70’s wreath that is on our front door – perfect for spring.


DIY Vintage 70's Floral Wreath by


I’ve had this amazing vintage 70’s fabric sitting around waiting for a project.  I found the fabric at a yard sale, and it reminded me of my childhood bedroom.


Then I saw Jenna’s Lilly Pulitzer Inspired Wreath.   Check it out over at Rain on a Tin Roof.  I knew I had my project and I dropped a note to Jenna to let her know how inspired and excited I was.




The Supplies


The only thing I had to purchase was a wreath form.  I had the fabric and other miscellaneous supplies.




The Project


I laid the form on top of the fabric to make sure I had enough.




I cut a hole in the middle, and started spray-gluing the fabric around the form.  I went back and used the hot glue gun for the bigger pieces folded over.




I hot glued the adorable butterfly, and added a pretty yellow ribbon.  What used to be someone’s curtains is now adorning our front door.  Don’t you love re-purposing vintage materials?

I was going to add some additional flowers, but I think this butterfly holds his own.

    My mom had the silver star burst with pearl center brooch. I wore it for many years. I retired mine last year…silver was fading. Thanks for bringing back memories.
