    I made a wreath with a hot glue gun recently and it was so fun! (and pretty!) I can’t wait to make another.

      What can stop a girl and her hot glue gun? HA! I use it for everything, it definitely makes crafting so much easier.

    Way cool! I thought grapevines wreaths were out- but you made it look fantastic and easy! Thanks!

      Thanks Crystal! I have no idea what’s in or out, I just work with what I’ve got. I see alot of the Magnolia leaves though…I bet you could take a few of those and do the same thing here.

    I’ve never thought of making wreaths interchangeable! What a great way to save a few dollars and some storage space. Plus, I love the tip of upcycling wreath forms. I’ve rescued a few that way too!

      Isn’t that such a cool idea?! I can’t wait to make a Christmas one next. Why buy them when you can just leave it there on the wall, and change the pieces?

    This is so cute! I’ve never seen one of those wreath things that you have that is shaped like a house. It’s so unique!
    I love making wreaths and sometimes the thought of taking everything off the wreath fills me with dread! I’m going to try this when autumn comes 🙂

      Claire, neat right? I found the two of them at a yard sale and got them for such a steal…I couldn’t say no. Interchangeable pieces are the way to go. Have fun with it!

    This is so smart! My BFF made me an adorable Olaf themed wreath, but I really can only get away with displaying it during the winter months. I absolutely love the idea of creating a wreath that can be interchangeable with the seasons or holidays. Your directions are so easy to follow that I know I can create this without the assistance of my very crafty BFF! I can’t wait to make this!

      Brittany, I’m so glad the directions made sense….sometimes I wonder…HA! I really try not to choose difficult or time consuming crafts, we’re all just way too busy for that. I know you can do this, just tie some flowers together, hot glue accent pieces and attach to your wreath. Have fun!

    Making this changeable is a wonderful idea. Have the base. Easy to get the rest.

      Thanks Candy, the idea really just comes from a lack of wanting to change my decor at the current moment. Then being able to just pull off a piece and put on another made me look around the house and wonder what else I could do that too! Now’s a good time to grab up both summer and fall pieces, they’re both on sale.

    What a great idea! I was just thinking that I wish I had a wreath up that was easy to change out for each season!!

    • Reply Jen E. August 7, 2017 at 9:23 AM

      YAY! Perfect timing Kristine!

    Those turned out so cute! It was so smart to make it changeable for each season/holiday!

    • Reply Jen E. August 7, 2017 at 9:24 AM

      Oh thanks! Now I won’t have to store away those entire wreaths.

  • Reply Mariah August 2, 2017 at 2:07 PM

    That’s a great price for those wreaths and I love your idea of taking an old one instead of paying high prices for a blank one! I made interchangeable wreaths for our home last year and loved them!

      You made them too!? Isn’t it just a brilliant idea? Great minds…Right?!

  • Reply Chrissie August 2, 2017 at 9:24 PM

    Both of these are so cute! Love it that they’re interchangeable for the seasons too.

    • Reply Jen E. August 7, 2017 at 9:42 AM

      It just makes sense to change them out. You can keep it up through the year and still be festive. Thanks Chrissie.

    Ooh this is beautiful. What a great idea to have it changeable.

    • Reply Jen E. August 7, 2017 at 9:52 AM

      Thanks Becca. I may make a few more of the fall versions, (I’m a bit obsessed with Fall)!

  • Reply Rebecca Hicks August 3, 2017 at 11:22 AM

    Oh. My. Goodness. That was an INGENIOUS idea! Why have I never thought of making a wreath interchangeable?! I LOVE what you did, and your arrangements turned out so pretty!

    • Reply Jen E. August 7, 2017 at 9:54 AM

      THANK YOU! I immediately began to look around to see what else I could make changeable-I may have started something… I’ll be grabbing up some more fall pieces to make another arrangement.

    You have done some phenomenal work and given me some ideas in the process. Now I’m going to have my eye out for wreaths that need some TLC. Thanks for sharing!

      Definitely keep you’re eyes peeled at the flea market & yard sales. Summer’s not over yet, so more will be popping up. This is the perfect time to grab up those craft store sales too. They’re putting out the Christmas stuff, so deep sales are happening right now on Fall items.
