In the Spring, I saw the cutest wreath on Shelley’s blog, Prairie Cottage Rose. She made it by wiring lots (and I do mean lots) of clay pots onto a grapevine wreath.
I was totally inspired to make my own. Shelley graciously emailed me with the particulars. My first stop was Michaels, to pick up an 18″ wreath. Then off to the Dollarama (you’re shocked, I’m sure!) for all my clay pots.
Due to the fact that I am just a tad impatient, I wanted to “help” the pots develop a bit of a weathered look. I took out my jar of White Lightening, which gives a white washed look, and painted on some areas of the pots. I also added some white and green paint in a few areas as well.
What do you think? I’m pretty pleased with the way it turned out. Shelley cautioned me about the weight of the finished wreath. Wow! She wasn’t kidding. That’s one heavy wreath. Hubby helped me hang it on the side of our new shed at the trailer. He used L O N G screws and wired it to the screws, at the top and bottom of the wreath.
