Like the idea of creating a BoHo Inspired Spring Wreath for your home? Well, get your crafting hats on my friends! It’s time for another DIY project using just a few items that I picked up at my local dollar store.
BoHo Inspired Spring Wreath – What’ You’ll Need
You shouldn’t have any trouble finding these three pieces at Dollarama, Dollar Tree or any other discount store in your area. But feel free to buy what works for you and your tastes based on availability. All you need is:
- 1 Hanging Wall Ornament
- 1 Mop Head
- 1 Bow
You can customize any of those items. For example, if white is not your thing, I’ve seen some interesting coloured mop heads that would be just as cute! Don’t like gingham bows? Get a different ribbon you like! Prefer a square shape over round? Pick whatever hanging wall ornament suits you, just be sure it has an outside edge where you can attach the string.
There’s a lot of flexibility in this simple project that you can hang outdoors or indoors.
How to Create Your BoHo Spring Wreath
This project can be completed in less than an hour. I probably could have been done in under 30 minutes but I was spending time taking pictures as I went along 📷 I’m thrilled with the results and since I have some extra supplies, I may make some more for my sisters 👯♀️
Below is a step-by-step guide on how you can make your own BoHo Inspired Spring Wreath or you can watch the video here:
Remove any tags or extra decorations on your hanging wall ornament. You want to only be left with the frame that you can attach your strings to.
Separate the mop strings from the base using scissors. Each string should be approximately 6-8 inches long and one mop head should give you enough string to cover a 12-inch metal frame.
Attach your strings to the frame using a Lark’s Head Knot. Continue adding strings around the frame until it is completely covered and loops are snug.
If you’re happy with how your wreath looks, you can skip this step. Personally, I like the shaggier look so I separate each of the mop strings to create a curly, frazzled look. You can also use a fine-toothed comb to achieve this look but depending on your mop string, it may create a lot of fluff. I found hand-separating the strings was much more effective.
Attach your favourite bow and you’re done!
