Pottery Barn Knock Off Wreath

You know what’s pretty?  Pottery Barn stuff.  All of it.  Every season.  Every stinking item in the catalog.

You know what I can’t afford?  Pottery Barn stuff.  Any of it.  Any stinking item in the catalog.

But I really want a pretty PB house.  I’ve started a board on Pinterest of things I think I can recreate.  I’ve started frequenting this amazing site called Copy Cat Crafts.  It’s chock full of knock off tutorials.

That’s where I got the inspiration for this wreath.  I think it just may be the prettiest wreath I’ve ever made.  {And I’ve made a lot of wreaths.  Two which were awarded Grand Champion at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair.}  Doesn’t it look sharp on the piano?  Don’t mind those roughed up keys…It adds to the primitive look.

This is the tutorial that inspired this project.  I followed pretty closely, but here is the process I used.

I bought:

1 Wire floral wreath form | A tiny can of silver spray paint | A stack of silver snowflake ornaments {they came in a tube} | An assortment of pretty glittery/silver snowflake ornaments

I used about 15 ornaments total for my 14″ wreath.  You may want a few more.  I did all my shopping at Hobby Lobby.  But Wal-Mart and the Dollar Tree are known to have good sparkly ornaments too!  This is one project where a little gaudy can still look classy.  The key is to stick with one color {like silver} and motif {the snowflakes.}

Here is what I did:

1.  Spray paint a wire wreath form silver.

2. Snip off tags and hooks from ornaments.

3.  Arrange them on the form.

4.  Hot glue them in place.

Done.  It is so easy…I just couldn’t even believe it.  I think it’s a classy wreath.  Like snowflakes each one will turn out unique.  And I plan to hang it the day after Thanksgiving until January 31.

While it is super pretty, I don’t think I’d recommend hanging it outdoors.  I think the elements may be a bit too harsh for this dainty project.

The best part?  The PB wreath retailed at $70.  Mine cost $15!  Yeah baby.  That’s what I like.  Thank you Copy Cat Crafts for being so inspiring!

Happy crafting.  And remember, friends don’t let friends craft alone.
