DIY Wreath for All Occasions

I love do-it-yourself projects, but I’m not what you’d call very ‘crafty.’ So when I discovered Washi Masking Tape I was hooked–and bought more rolls of it than I’d ever need. So here’s a fun wreath I made putting the Washi Tape to good use. 

Porch Swings and Rocking Chairs

Where I’m from, we like to decorate our outdoor spaces more than our indoor space, probably because we spend a lot of time on our porches or outside in the evenings when the Southern heat still simmers, but is easier to enjoy.

That’s why I’m loving this project. It will go well with the trinkets and flowerpots I already have sitting around on my front porch–and is perfect for adding a little festive feel when I pull out the patriotic decorations for Memorial Day and the 4th of July.

DIY Wreath for All Occasions

Like most of my projects, everything else I used can be found at your local dollar store. I even spotted some patterned masking tape on my last visit–though obviously I didn’t buy it since I already have a year’s supply!

The great thing about this project, is that it’s REVERSIBLE. That way, you can easily tie another ribbon or scarf around it, flip it over, and you’ve pushed yourself into the next season or holiday.

Materials Needed for Your Own DIY Reversible Wreath

So here’s what you’ll need for this project:  

    • Clothespins
    • Cardboard
    • Felt, Cloth, or Posterboard (This is cosmetic to cover the cardboard ring. I used white poster board. But you could also cover the ring in a patterned cloth, felt, etc. Get as creative as you like!)
    • Circle Pattern 
    • Ribbon or Scarf 
    • Washi Masking Tape
    • Pencil
    • Scissors

Endless Ideas for Every Season

Though the materials are basic supplies, the patterns you use and the scarf or ribbon you choose will be based on the holiday or season you want to celebrate.

Again, I wanted to keep it simple and inexpensive, so the scarves I used were found at the Dollar Tree. I then used the patterned Washi Tape to create an Easter/Spring Wreath that I could then flip over to take me into Memorial Day/Summer all the way to the 4th of July.

  1. A double-sided wreath. What a great idea! I have not yet trusted myself to purchase Washi tape for fear of becoming obsessed with it.. You have temped me here . . .

  2. I saw these on Google + last night and just had to come over and leave a comment. These are so cute! I’m not the most crafty person but I feel confident I could make these. I also love shopping for washi tape- now I have something to do with it- thanks!

  3. This is such a great idea. I have heard many great things about Washi Tape, but I fear if I mess with I will become hooked on using it and go into an even bigger poor house. This is definitely something that even kids can make for their Mothers as a gift too.

  4. What a great idea! I’ve been wanting a simple washi tape project to try, and this may be it. Thanks!

  5. This wreath really is incredibly adorable… and looks so easy! I’ll have to give it a whirl.

  21. Hi Mitzi. Thanks for linking up at #Pintastic Pinteresting Party! This is really cute. Like so many of your other readers, I haven’t worked with the Washi Tape yet. (fearful of addiction,? maybe) I have so many other addictions, and lately so little time that I am still hesitant to go down that road. But I do enjoy seeing what others are creating. Thanks again for sharing.

  22. I love it
