I can’t resist vintage Christmas colors and they work perfectly for this Joy Vintage Style Wreath I made for my super red front door! It’s a little tricky finding wreaths that look great on the door but I love how this turned out!
You can really switch up the center of the wreath too – I used this fun pallet style star but you could do a snowflake or something else wintery!
You could also make up a wooden background and glue the JOY pieces to the wood as well. It would look so cute propped by your front door or even by the Christmas tree.
Here’s how to make your Vintage Style Joy Wreath Set:
- Wooden J and Y
- White Artificial Wreath
- Wood Pallet star
- FolkArt ® Acrylic Colors: Dutch Aqua, Titanium White
- Apple Barrel ® Acrylic Colors: Princess Pink, Flag Red, Timeless Gray, Crisp Green
- FolkArt Brush
- Wreath decorations – small bottle brush and pom poms
- Fine sandpaper
- Hot Glue
- Command Strips and Hook
Decorating with wood letters is sooo easy now that the craft stores are carrying all sorts of styles, colors and sizes! You can really get creative with them and you don’t have to haul out the saws.
Apply a coat of FolkArt Acrylic Dutch Aqua paint to the letters. A large flat brush works great for this.
Once the base coat of the paint is dry, brush on a little white and gray paint to add some extra texture. Once all the paint is dry, sand the corners and edges.
Repeat the steps with the pallet star, changing up the colors in each section. Add some of the other colors lightly to each section to add a distressed look.
Wire or glue your star to the wreath. Once your star is in place, glue the little bottle brush trees in place and add in some little pom poms for color.
Command strips work great for hanging the letters and a command strip hook is perfect for the wreath. That way they’ll come right off after Christmas!
Such a bright and happy way to decorate your door for Christmas!
