Guest Project: Anthro-inspired Wreath & Giveaway


I’d like to introduce you to my guest crafter today — Tia @ Two Junk Chix. Tia is such a fun and bubbly girl. And so creative! She has done a couple giveaways here for some of her gorgeous Crimson Clover jewelry. This is one of her newest creations that I am obsessed with:

Today she is sharing a fabulous project and a giveaway! Take it away Tia!


Anthro Style Wreath

Craft night with the girls resulted in these adorable wreaths inspired by my all time favorite store….ANTHROPOLOGIE. They were so fun to make but more importantly, they were so easy! I just love projects that give you instant gratification!
Up close and personal with some of the details…
 For mine, I decided to stick with a more neutral palette with touches of lime green, yellow, and robins egg blue.
We started out with these straw wreaths. You could use the styrofoam ones but we wanted ours to be really big and these were the perfect size. We gathered pearl pins, burlap, cloth flowers, vintage sheet music, ribbon and anything else we felt inspired by.

Vicki cut our strips of burlap for us. We needed 2 strips per wreath.Once we got all of our burlap strips cut, Vick and I wrapped the burlap around the wreaths to cover up the straw.

We decided to leave the plastic packaging around the wreath so the straw wouldn’t poke through the burlap. Using a straight pin, the burlap is held in place. And now the fun begins!

Here is my dear friend, Deanne embellishing her wreath with my daughter, Paige. Even a 5 year old can do this! So much fun!!

Using pearl pins and hot glue, we just kept adding yummy treasures to our wreath. Here is a rosette using white and natural coffee filters and topped off with a big pearl.

All 3 of our wreaths turned out very differently but all were quite fabulous! Here is what mine looks like hanging on my door…
Hope you have enjoyed our Anthro Style Wreath!!
Thank you so much, Jen! It is always a pleasure to work with you.
I’m so excited to give away another original Crimson Clover design. Crimson Clover is unique handmade jewelry that is vintage and vintage inspired with a hip and modern feel…and sometimes a little edgy. I’m a stay at home mother of 5 who loves to create and everything that I design, make and carry is made here in the fabulous USA!

Thanks Tia – I’ll be right over to enter!

  9. Mrs.19034 says:

    This is super cute! I noticed using the wrapped straw wreath was a lot cheaper and larger than the styro. It worked perfect too for the wreath I made, just wrapped in burlap. I should have left the plastic on because the straw was annoying and made a mess and it could have been left on.
