What's better than Fall? Fall and football season! Of course we have been watching a lot of football in this house starting just a few months ago and with Hockey and Basketball season starting too, there will be many more nights of sports for us.
Whether you are a die-hard sports fan or a casual one, you'll love this DIY tutorial for the ultimate sports wreath.
I have made quite a few door wreath in my year and a half of living in our house, but I had yet to make a sports one.
Danny and I have a somewhat divided football household. We root for different football teams, but since they're not rivals, we are civil about it.
Here is a step by step tutorial of how I created my DIY Football Wreath:
-Burlap wire ribbon
-Wire Wreath outline
Step 1: Paint the logo.
I found two pieces of wood at my local JoAnn's store, a small "B" for the Bengals logo and an oval that I was able to paint into the Green Bay logo.
Step 2: Tie the burlap ribbon around the wreath.
I found this great burlap wire ribbon on sale at JoAnn's and luckily they had all three colors that I needed. It was really thick, so I ended up cutting it in half to make more pieces to give the wreath a fuller look. The burlap ribbon also had wire in it which really helped to conform to the shape of the wreath.
Step 3: Tie on the logos and the football.
To finish the look, I added our Family name on the football and then glued the wooden pieces to twine which then I tied to the back of the wire wreath. I first used hot glue to secure the logos and the football, but because of the weight of the wood, it wouldn't stay. I ended up using craft glue and that worked much better.
The wreath turned out so well that I decided to make my in-laws one too! They are Bengals fans that now live in Steelers country, which is why I thought this Bengals wreath would be perfect on their door!
