My little thrift store wreath score is making a big impact. All it needed was the right companion.
Thrift Store Wreath
Today is Thrift Store Décor Day. As I always say, it’s one of my favorite tours. Thrifty is my middle name. Really it’s Diane. I bet you guys didn’t know that. Fun Kathy fact for the day!
I put these two thrifty finds together to make one beautiful wreath.
I found the wreath at Goodwill for 99 cents and on the same day I found the reclaimed chair back at My Favorite Junk Shop. I knew I had the perfect mate for the wreath when I spotted the chair back. Win-Win.
I cleaned up the chair back and gave the wreath a little love by straightening and primping the flowers.
I cut off the dowels and sanded the rough parts of the chair then I did a wax job with Howards Neutral (clear) wax.
To attach the wreath to the chair back I used wire. I find it holds better than string or twine.
I used wire pliers to twist the wire tight and then cut off the excess with wire cutters.
A little camo Duck Tape and you can’t even see those wires (insert smiley face). No, really I applied the tape over the wire to protect whatever the wreath is hanging on. I could have swiveled the twisted cut ends of the wire around to the front under the wreath but that was too much trouble.
No need to attach a hanger to the chair back. It just slips over a nail or wreath hanger.
See how easy that was. The day I took photos it was raining so instead of the wreath on the door the wreath is on the mantel. I also like to show off the little earring girl. I just love her. Another of my thrifty finds.
