Holiday Wreath Trio

Christmas Wreath Trio

Without fail, winter eventually comes around to knock on my door and I end up with winter scowl syndrome.  This morning I woke and looked outside to see the sure sign that the season is here… white stuff on everything.  That means I must go into survival mode to ward off seasonal hibernation and blues, which basically means wintertime DIY.

I am participating in The Home Depot’s Virtual Workshop, where I build and share my own version of their workshop project.

Create your own Christmas Wreath Trio display at your local Home Depot DIY Workshop on Saturday, November 21st, at 10 am.

Register for the workshop HERE.

This season’s project is this Christmas Wreath Trio:

*The Home Depot hosts organized workshop classes at local stores across the country.  Learn how to build décor projects, how to make easy home repairs and how to operate tools through demonstrations and step-by-step instructions.  There are three types of Workshops offered – Do-It- Yourself (DIY), Do-It-Herself (DIH) and Kids.

Learn more here.

Now let me introduce you to my take on a wreath trio.

(The following materials list used for building 3 wreath boxes.  You’ll find all the items for this project at The Home Depot.)

Materials

  • 3- 1″ x 8″ x 8′ boards
  • 2– 1″ x 2″ x 8′ boards
  • 3– eyebolts or hooks
  • wood glue
  • caulk
  • paint
  • wire/wire cutters for wreath decor (I used tin snips to cut wire.)
  • fishing line, twine, or ribbon to hang wreaths

Tools

  • miter saw
  • nail gun
  • sander

In an attempt to get as much “box frame” out of each board, the overall dimensions of the box ended up being: 24″ wide, by 25.5″ tall.  (I wanted  to give each wreath box slightly more height than width, because they would me hanging vertically within the frame.)

After I cut two sections of one board at 23.5″ in length, I cut two more at 24″.  (Image above)

*Note:  I applied a coat of primer before I assembled the box, to save time.

Next, I used wood glue and my RYOBI Airstrike nailer to assemble a basic box frame.

I measured across the opening to install a section of 1×2″ board in the center.

Next, I measured and installed the two vertical sections of 1×2″ board.

Next, I caulked at all the seams in preparation to spray paint the wreath boxes.

After the white spray paint was dry, I installed a hook to the inside “roof” of the box.

As an extra, I decided to make small snowflake ornaments out of a sheet of decorative aluminum.

Keeping with my color tones I’d already incorporated, I spray painted them metallic copper.

And that’s it!
