Floral Painted Wood Wreath!

This project is super close to my heart! Paint a wooden wreath for the perfect Summer time that is low profile but super stunning. This sweet wreath is a beautiful combination of my mom and myself.

Okay, story time:

When I was young...like about 10-ish, my mom was really big into painting wooden art. Tole painting was all the rage and she loved it. She bought a bandsaw and was able to cut her own wood pieces. 

She started having regular classes of friends that would come over and paint with her. I don't think she made any money, but they covered the cost.

Well, one of the projects she did was this wreath. She spent a lot of time painting one wreath and then she decided to paint another to give as a gift. And...like most of us crafters, she never finished it!

She passed away from breast cancer when I was nearly 17. So this was just a reminder of a life ended too early.

Here's how it looked when I inherited it a few years ago. It is penciled in the designs that she would have painted. I knew I couldn't paint it the same way she did...so I went rogue. 

This unfinished painted wood wreath was started by my mom before she passed away.

I decided to leave the white and blue flowers that my mom had painted and then add my own style for the rest.





I used acrylic craft paint from Plaid. I simple gooped in on the wreath using a round paintbrush. This technique would work on just a wooden round disc or wreath.

I mixed colors and painted roses, tulips and the gerber daisy.

I gooped on some blue painted flowers...and the blue bird.

Then I added ferns and leaves with teal and green paint...with little details in yellow.

I sprayed it with some glossy clear coat spray for a perfect shiny finish. I love the combination of my mom and my own styles on this flat wood wreath. 

I'm especially glad that it's a project that is finished. I just tossed aside perfection and let myself give it a try. I love how it turned out!

That's it!

Perfect for the front door or part of the Summertime home decor. Low profile and nothing will fall off of it!
