Make A Welcome Wreath With A Wood Billiard Ball Rack

A vintage metal welcome sign, a wood Billiard ball rack, and artificial flowers combine to make a welcome wreath for the front door.

Today is the Thrift Store Decor Tour, and the projects are fabulous. My wreath project was inspired by this rusty metal welcome sign.

At one time, the little sign was on a metal frame that you stick in the ground. Over the years, it’s decorated many baskets of Summer flowers. I threw the sign on a workshop shelf when it fell off its legs. 

Billiard ball rack

You’ve seen the billiard ball rack a time or two. A few years ago, I made a succulent hanging display, and then I reused the rack to make a Christmas display featuring a glittery church. I like having items like the wood rack in my junk stash because I can repurpose them over and over.

The wreath needed a floral element, so I went through my flower box and found a few small stems of pink flowers.

I hot-glued the metal welcome sign to the wood frame. I love my cordless battery-powered Ryobi glue gun! (Amazon Affiliate Link)

I applied glue to the right side of the triangle and the bottom of the rack between the wood and the metal sign. So the sign is attached in two places to the rack.

Next, I cut the pink floral stems into smaller bunches and hot-glued them to the rack. The hot glue did not hold all the individual flower stems in place, so I grabbed my stapler and stapled the flowers in place.

What a sweet wreath. I’ve always loved this soft, faded pink color.

I tried mixing in a few small yellow flower stems, but that seemed a bit much.

The wreath isn’t very big but it doesn’t have to be. This piece would look good hanging on the wall in your foyer or living room.
