"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Willow & Grapevine Fall Wreath

There's no better way to celebrate the changing seasons than with DIY wreath ideas that really capture the mood. This Willow & Grapevine Fall Wreath is an eye-catching addition to a front door. The warm colors and unexpected design make this fall wreath DIY really stand out from the crowd. For this project, combine a small and large wreath together for a truly unique design. It's also important to choose silk flowers that reflect the season. Since this project doesn't require real flowers, there's no need to worry about keeping your piece alive. This is a low-maintenance craft project that you can keep well into November.

Primary TechniqueFlorals/Wreaths

Materials:

  • Larger willow wreath
  • Smaller grapevine wreath
  • Bunches of good quality silk flowers
  • Wire cutter to cut the bunches apart
  • Glue gun
  • Floral wire
  • Red, purple and orange sheer wired ribbon
  • Scissors

 

Instructions:

  1. Attach the first set of fern flowers by tucking them into the larger wreath and further secure each one with a dab of hot glue.


     
  2. Attach the second type of fern leaf flowers and further secure each leaf with a dab of hot glue.


     
  3. Now do the same thing with the maple leaf flowers. The larger wreath is now complete. Notice that I attached the leaves in different directions randomly but quite evenly around the wreath.


     
  4. Now secure an assortment of silk flowers to the smaller grapevine wreath. In this wreath there is no pattern but I tried to make sure the colours were evenly spread around the wreath. I also further secured each flower with a hidden dab of glue. Notice that you can hardly see the smaller grapevine wreath because it is so full of flowers.


     
  5. Now attach the smaller wreath to the larger wreath. I just used floral wire to connect the two wreaths at four different points so nothing would move or come apart.


     
  6. I also used floral wire to make and secure the bow to the top wreath.
