Whitney’s Walnut Wreath Tutorial

Hey friends!  Hope you are all having a great day!  Let’s go NUTS!  We recently told you about a spotlight we were asked to do for the Gorilla Glue company HERE.  We loved our wreath hangers and had to adorn them with cute wreaths as well.  I went with a nut and pinecone wreath and this is how I did it…

I started by getting the supplies.  I purchased a grapevine wreath at Hobby Lobby for super cheap.  These can be found at almost any craft or floral store.
I also bought a bag of hazelnuts and 4 lbs of walnuts in the shells at the grocery store.  These too were super cheap:)  I also bought a bag of tiny pine cones from Hobby Lobby.  They were in the Christmas craft section.
My weapon of choice on this one was the hot glue gun.  I started by randomly gluing the walnuts around the wreath.  I used a grapevine wreath rather than a styrofoam one because I knew I could leave the sides showing which saved me money and I like the look better myself.
Once I had most of the wreath covered in walnuts I began space filling with my hazlenuts and pine cones.   Any space that was left between the walnuts was filled with either hazelnuts or pinecones. A look from the side…
My final step was to hang this baby up and take lots of pictures! Woohoo!! What do you think… Have I gone nuts??!  Hope you like it… Have a great Tuesday!!

    I love this! It would be great for fall and for Christmas. I might even be able to manage this project…if I didn't eat the project materials first 🙂

    Awesome, love the look! Also love getting decor "stuff" at the grocery, then the expense is buried in the grocery budget! 😉

    I love this idea – I made a Christmas tree using the same concept – will try this wreath as a compliment.

    A winner!! The problem is I'd want to pull out a nut cracker, sit next to it and have myself a little holiday snack. Janell

    Too funny I posted a 'going nuts' post last year. Made a walnut wreath too. But I used walnuts from a friends garden. You can find it here:

    Good Morning Sweetie…
    I have to tell you this is absolutely stunning. I just love the simplicity and elegance of it. Your wreath hanger is just so beautiful. I never would have thought about a post to a plague with a hanger on it for a wreath. On the fireplace hearth it would be beautiful. I may have to try this one. How devine.

    Thank you for sharing this morning. Please stop by and say hi. I love to have the company.

    Country hugs…Sherry
