Ceiling Medallion Wreaths

Posted on

I have been looking for just the right thing for my front door for a long time now.  When searching wreaths on Pinterest  I found a few images of ceiling medallions that were used as wreaths.  I had to make one!!  The hard part was finding a good price for the medallion.

The Medallion I ended up with was $17 from Amazon that was much better than the 40-60 at home depot and Lowes for the same size or smaller.  The only draw back was mine came in two pieces.  They had a lot of styles available.
What was needed:
*1 ceiling medallion in 2 pieces
*liquid nail
*spray paint
*felt to line the back (my back was visible through the window)
*craft glue
*roll of ribbon
*cardboard (if medallion is not 1 piece)
  1. I laid the medallion on the cardboard box it was mailed on and traced it.  Then cut it a little smaller.
  2. Spray paint the medallion in color of choice. (I had planned to do a brown color wash on top but loved it just the way it was)
  3. After the paint dries flip over and cut felt like cardboard.
  4. Glue felt on the back of wreath.
  5. Cut ribbon in 2 pieces.
  6. Loop the one around the wealth to use as hanger.
  7. Then add bow with the 2nd piece of ribbon.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!

Hi! I am Danielle Interior designer turned stay at home mother of 3 wonderful kids. I love to do crafts, projects, parties, and photography. With this being said I am a not a pro by any means and have had many many failed attempts. Some funny and some just plain ugly:) I do not care for cooking and house work. My goal is to find a better, faster, more organized way to just get it done so I can spend time with the ones. This is where Pinterest has come into my life. Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship. I have spent the better part of a day looking up great ideas and never putting them to use. What a waste of time... or is it? Sometimes I find something that rocks and I try it and the world is a better place:) But the worst is when I try something and it’s a big bust. A how did that ever pass for working, did they even read the steps they were giving, or do you think they get a laugh out of my attempt. Many friends have told me that I need to post the bad ones so they don’t bother and let them know the good pins so they can give them a try. So here goes!
