Modern Brass Wreath

By Emily.

One thing evaded me decor-wise moving into our temporary rental was our glass front door. It has a giant pane and then terrible tan painted wood casing around it. To make a long story short in a row of the same types of doors it can be confusing which one is ours and so I’ve been trying to find something that fits my style and stands out amongst a sea of boxwood circle wreathed glass pane tan doors. Ya feel me? I freaking love Boxwood PS, I just needed something different to help our poor mail lady. 😉Modern Brass Wreath or Wall HangingSo how about a simple brass wreath with the option to add or take away seasonal foliage and floral? Done.

Here’s what you’ll do and a few links to other options I weighed before moving forward with this DIY.

1. Brass Tubing. You can buy this on eBay or Amazon but make sure you figure out your diameters. It is the actual width of the circle not the length of the circle if it was unrolled. Like I thought. Ahem. Anyway this is an 1/8th inch and knowing now I probably would’ve wanted 1/4th.Modern Brass Wreath or Wall Hanging

2. Using metal cutters I did one 1 foot piece and 2 2 foot pieces to get that elongated triangular shape. Once you cut the tube just take a hammer and hammer it back out so you can fit the fishing line through.

3. String the tubes onto a length of fishing line and then tie a knot tightly at the top.Modern Brass Wreath or Wall Hanging

4. Use extra line or a wreath hook and stick that baby up on the door or wall.Modern Brass Wreath or Wall Hanging

5.You’ll need to add your floral or foliage greens with either floral wire or that extra fishing wire (floral wire is way easier.) This is fresh lavender which smells and looks amazing but for my door I’ll be doing faux!DSC_5389
