Who said a wreath has to be a circle? Only you make the rules when it comes to decorating your space. I am loving hexagons lately so I decided to make a wreath out of three of them. The beauty of this “wreath” is that you can change out the hexagons each season with different decor. Perhaps for Christmas you can change the ribbon out to red, green and gold and add some ornaments hanging from the hexagons. For Valentine’s Day you can add pinks and reds and cute little hearts on the shelf. So let’s get started!
Craftwood Trio of Wood Hexagons
1. Start by removing the hangars from the back of each hexagon.
2. Position the hexes the way you want and then wood glue them together. Clamp them in place and let them rest until dry, making sure to wipe any glue that seeps out.
3. Stain or paint as desired. TIP: An old, holey sock works well for a stain rag 🙂 Once dry you can sand the edges if you like distressing.
4. Drill a hole on the top of the left and right hex. String jute through the hole and tie in place.
5. Next add a thumbtack to the top of your door. Tie the jute in place making sure the hexagons are centered and straight on your door.
6. Next add your pumpkins to the shelves. To hold them in place you can add a small glue dot on the bottom to make it stick onto your shelf and not fall off when you open and close the door. Removing the glue dot later is easy.
7. Find some coordinating ribbon and tie it onto the jute. Simple and elegant.
Jo-Ann carries a ton of small faux pumpkins, they even have velour ones that are darling. Mix and match and find your favorite combination.
