Father's Day Wreath
By: Rhonda Unruh for Home.Made
Get in the spirit for Father's Day with this simple and fun Father's Day Wreath! This decorative wreath can hang either indoors or out and is a great way to welcome friends and family to your summer BBQ! This wreath also makes a great gift for dads and grandpas!
- Styrofoam Wreath Form
- White Button-Down Men's Shirt
- Jute twine
- D, A, D letters (mine are foam but you can use wood or chipboard)
- Paint and Mod Podge
- Fabric for a bowtie (or the real thing, if you have one)
- Hot Glue
- The first step is a little tedious, but so worth it. Wrap your wreath form in the jute twine, securing with hot glue as you go.
- Take your wreath form and lay it on top of your men's shirt, with the top of the wreath form at the top of the collar. Cut off the bottom of the shirt about two inches below where the bottom of the wreath lies.
- Now, carefully cut along the button placket towards the collar, following the seam as closely as you can.
- When you reach the seam where the collar is joined to the front of the shirt, continue cutting along seamline around collar. (Be sure to cut on the bottom collar seam - you want it to be able to fold over later.)
- When you reach the seam for the opposite button placket, cut down it along the seam as with the other side. It will look like this when you're done. Set this aside until later.
- Now you'll want to decorate your DAD letters. I painted mine with some turquoise blue acrylic paint (adding a coat of Mod Podge once it was dry for shine.) You can mod podge fabric if you like or do glitter. Be creative!
- While you're waiting for those to dry, now's the time to make your bow tie (if you're making one).
- Alright, time to get dressed. Put your bowtie on the shirt collar and fold collar down. Then center your collar over the wreath form.
- Secure back and front sides of the collar to the wreath with hot glue.
- Pull your button placket straight down and center on the bottom portion of the wreath, wrapping around the circumference of the wreath. Secure with hot glue.
- You should now have an almost finished wreath!
- Now it's time to add the letters. Place them on your wreath to your liking and hot glue those bad boys down.
- And you're done! Easy, right? Now go hang this on your door to say Happy Father's Day to all who enter!
