Every door needs a wreath so I figured I’d throw one together that isn’t specific to a season so you could use it all year round! I absolutely love copper piping and loved the way it popped on my black door. The best part about this project is I think it took me all of 10 minutes! If you didn’t want to put foliage on it, it would take you 3 minutes tops.
This is the first part of my little series telling you how I made over my porch to be a little moody and dramatic entry way! Stay tuned to see how simple it is to paint your door and planter makeovers galore! Also, this makeover was a perfect addition to my front porch area and I think you’ll love it.
What you need for your copper wreath
- three 2 ft copper pipes
- Foliage (optional)
- Floral Wire (optional)
You will start by cleaning your copper pipe. Copper pipe comes pretty dirty so you can see exactly how I clean it on this post where I created a copper triangle mobile.
Tie the rope at the tip of the triangle to form a tight triangle. I double knotted it to make sure it was tight.
Next you will attach your foliage. This was on my previous wreath so I just decided to use it again. I liked that it made it look a little over grown and jungle-y. I hung up the wreath and attached it as it was hanging so I could see what it looked like.
Then I was all done! I have the previous wreath on my door for about four months and not one person mentioned it. I’ve had this one on my door for 4 days and have already had so many compliments! My favorite kind of DIY, looks expensive, but it’s not.
Here are some more DIY wreaths I’m digging:
