Anthro Style Wreath

Craft night with the girls resulted in these adorable wreaths inspired by my all time favorite store....ANTHROPOLOGIE. They were so fun to make but more importantly, they were so easy! I just love projects that give you instant gratification!

Up close and personal with some of the details...
For mine, I decided to stick with a more neutral palette with touches of lime green, yellow, and robins egg blue.

We started out with these straw wreaths. You could use the styrofoam ones but we wanted ours to be really big and these were the perfect size. We gathered pearl pins, burlap, cloth flowers, vintage sheet music, ribbon and anything else we felt inspired by.

Vicki cut our strips of burlap for us. We needed 2 strips per wreath.

Once we got all of our burlap strips cut, Vick and I wrapped the burlap around the wreaths to cover up the straw.

We decided to leave the plastic packaging around the wreath so the straw wouldn't poke through the burlap. Using a straight pin, the burlap is held in place. And now the fun begins!

Here is my dear friend, Deanne embellishing her wreath with my daughter, Paige. Even a 5 year old can do this! So much fun!!

Using pearl pins and hot glue, we just kept adding yummy treasures to our wreath. Here is a rosette using white and natural coffee filters and topped off with a big pearl.

All 3 of our wreaths turned out very differently but all were quite fabulous! Here is what mine looks like hanging on my door...

Hope you have enjoyed our Anthro Style Wreath!!

Thank you so much, Jen! It is always a pleasure to work with you. I'm so excited to give away another original Crimson Clover design. Crimson Clover is unique handmade jewelry that is vintage and vintage inspired with a hip and modern feel...and sometimes a little edgy. I'm a stay at home mother of 5 who loves to create and everything that I design, make and carry is made here in the fabulous USA!
