A front door is a blank slate just begging to be decorated. I like to treat my front door just as I do any other space in my home. As the season's change, so does my front door décor. Updating your front door not only makes it pop, but it ups your curb appeal!
Normally, I would make or buy a standard round wreath for my front door, but this time around I wanted to think a bit outside of the box and go for a different shape. I really wanted to try out a square wreath. Since there aren’t many square wreath forms to purchase, I decided to make my own out of foam core board from the dollar store! This lightweight DIY square floral wreath is just what a plain door needs. The moss, flowers, and “hello” really add some texture and color to a boring door. Check out the full tutorial below to see how easy it is to make your own DIY square floral wreath!
- Foam Core Board
- Moss Sheet
- An assortment of Faux Flowers
- White Cardstock
- Cricut (you could also print the template, trace, and cut it out)
- Hello template
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Craft Knife
- Craft Cutting Mat
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
- Wire Cutters
- Draw a square on your foam that’s 14’’x14’’ and a smaller square on the inside that measures 4’x4’’.
- Place the foam board on top of your cutting mat and use your craft knife to cut out the square shape.
- Unfold the moss sheet, flip it over so the moss is facing down, lay your foam square on top and trace around the outside and inside.
- Use your scissors to cut the moss.
- Add a layer of Mod Podge to the back of the moss sheet.
- Place the moss on top of your foam square and press down.
- Use wire cutters to cut the stem off of your faux flowers.
- Add hot glue to the back of your flowers and glue them to the bottom of your wreath.
- Use the template to cut the word “hello” from cardstock using either a Cricut machine or by hand.
- Add hot glue to the back of the hello and glue it on top of the wreath.
- Cut a piece of twine 2 inches long, fold it in half, place a dab of hot glue on the back of the wreath, and add the twine.
You know have a DIY square floral wreath that will make your front door really stand out. This technique can be used to create any shape you want. So, get creative and have fun!
