Cute and quick Christmas wreath idea.
I started by cutting a small wood circle out of plywood and used small nails to
attach the pickets to the wood circle.
My recycled pickets were a weathered brownish/gray so
I brushed them with watered down apple green paint.
The watery paint gave them a nice stained effect and let the wood grain still come through.
This wreath is quite large and about 36" across. You could also cut
the base of the pickets down to create a smaller wreath.
I had a black metal bow on hand and painted it red with white dots.
The bow hangs on a small screw on the wreath so it is removable so
the wreath can be used for other seasons.
