If you’ve been following my blog you might know that I love my big galvanized metal wreath form. I’ve switched out the inside of the wreath to create a Fourth of July Wreath, a Farmhouse Gather Autumn Wreath and a Christmas Wreath.
I hang the wreath on our front door. And it looks great!! The only downside is that the wreath is very large and it’s hard to get in and out of the door with the wreath hanging there.
Smaller Size Galvanized Wreath Form
So the other day when I was in Hobby Lobby I saw that they have a SMALLER size of the same wreath! Yay! This size works so much better with our door because it’s smaller and not as deep.

Add A Saying to the Wreath
Adding a saying is a fun way to greet friends on a front door wreath. I used paper from my Chasing Adventures line to create this summer saying — Never Stop Exploring. I think it’s perfect for Summer and all of our family adventures. And you can get Chasing Adventures at JoAnn Stores!! Yay!
Layer the Saying on Top of Patterned Paper
I mod podged a gingham print from my Chasing Adventures line onto a wood block. I actually made two of these wreaths. The one pictured above is a pineapple paper that is also from my Chasing Adventures line!
Mod Podge the Saying onto Cardboard
I used mod podge to attach the saying to a piece of cardboard.
Make Paper Water Resistant
Since my wreath is hanging outside I wanted to add an extra layer of protection to the paper. After the mod podge was dry on the wood block and the saying, I added a layer of Crystal Clear Glossy Accents on top of the paper. You can also use Outdoor Mod Podge if you want to do this. You might need to apply a couple layers of the coating, depending on how much exposure your wreath is going to get.
Attach the Saying to the Wood Block
I used 3-d dots to attach my saying to the wood block. I wanted to give the saying a little more definition. But you can also mod podge the saying right onto the block and that eliminates the step of mod podging the saying onto the cardboard backing.
Hot Glue the Block onto the Wreath Form
I put another block on the bottom of the wreath and then hot glued the saying block on top of that block. I also used hot glue to attach the front of the saying block to the inside of the wreath form.
Arrange Your Flowers and Succulents
Once my saying block was attached to the wreath form, I laid out the rest of my flowers and succulents. Then I hot glued them together and onto the inside of the wreath form.
Reusing the Metal Wreath Form
One nice thing about using this metal wreath form is that it is easy to change things out. The hot glue peels off and you can take the inside elements out and start over for a new season.
