Window Frame Decor – How to Make this Animal Wreath
Window Frame Decor is everywhere right now in interior design! It is a fun way to add texture and visual interest to any boring space in your house!
Do you have any old window frames that you’ve been wondering what to do with?! This animal wreath DIY is a really fun and whimsical way to get new use out of a window frame!
Last week, I stopped at this antique/estate sale shop that I drive by frequently in Chamblee, GA called My Favorite Place. I had my girls with me and it was a lot to take in! I saw so many things I wanted to scoop up and give new life to! My girls were also pulling me in a million directions trying to show me all the fun trinkets and antiques they were finding. Needless to say, I’ll have to go back alone to fully explore!
One thing I had to get was this arched cathedral window frame. If you’re in Atlanta, go here – they have a lot of these cathedral style window frames in the back. Just take a look!
I also picked up this adorable metal tray that I’m using to keep everything organized on our coffee table
In our living room we have a mirror above our couch that I put a small wooden boxwood wreath on, but it just looked too small. So I thought it would be perfect to take down and use for this project!
The girls directed me specifically that they wanted to be in this shot. Summer hair and all!
What you’ll need to make this window frame decor with an animal wreath
- Old window frame
- Gold Animal Bust – I found mine at Target for only $6!
- Small Boxwood Wreath – Like this one
- Ribbon of Choice – I used this black and white version
- Hot Glue Gun
1.) First you’ll want to start by threading your ribbon through the back of your animal bust. The version I purchased was perfect for this!
2.) Next you’ll want to line up where you want the animal to fall on the wreath and wrap the ribbon around. Leave some extra ribbon to make sure you have enough to wrap around the window frame to attach it.
3.) Cut the ribbon to the correct length. Then hot glue the ribbon together where it meets in the back on the wreath. There should be an extra tail of ribbon to wrap around the back of the window.
4.) Take the extra tail of ribbon and hot glue it to the back of the window frame to affix it in place.
That’s it! Easy peasy! Now you have a beautiful and whimsical window frame decor piece to place anywhere in your home. It would look fantastic on top of a fireplace mantle.
