Hi friends! I have a fun, fast and frugal project that will decorate your home all year-long. It is a DIY wreath with a plaque on it that you can write a seasonal greeting on and decorate to match any season because the colors are neutral.
I made sure the plaque was glossy so that I could use my new Crafty Croc Liquid Chalk Markers on it and the writing would be easy to remove with a damp cloth. I will be giving an 18 color pack away to one lucky blog reader so make sure you leave a comment on this post for a chance to win! Also Crafty Croc giving my viewers $6 off the 18 color pack with the coupon code FRUGAL06 now through September 14, 2015.
See how easy it is! I think they would sell really well at a craft fair (yes, you have my permission to make these to sell!) or be awesome housewarming gifts.
- Crafty Crock Liquid Chalk Markers, available in 8 pack neon, 10 pack earth tones or 18 pack mega kit. *note $6 off 18 pack with coupon code FRUGAL06
- Styrofoam wreath form (9″ from Dollar Tree)
- Old Book
- Die (optional, I used the Tim Holts Bigz tattered florals for mine)
- Hot glue
- craft wire and cutters
- Wooden plaque made from hardboard (painted black and varnished or you can purchase a small chalkboard to glue on)
All of the directions for making the wreath are in the video. It is really easy. If you can’t find a wreath form you can cut a ring out of cardboard and use that. Coffee filters would work really well in place of the die cut book pages too. Use what you have and experiment! I want to thank Crafty Croc for sponsoring this tutorial and offering the giveaway. Make sure you leave a comment for a chance to win a set of markers. I will draw a name at random next Monday. If you want to save $6 on the 18 pack of Crafty crock Liquid Chalk Markers make sure you use the coupon code FRUGAL06 before 9/14/15. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
