Vintage Window Wreath Tutorial

I’m hoping this is my last tutorial for the next several weeks. If all goes to plan, I will have the baby this week {or it could be next, and while I’m out I have 12 amazing bloggers taking over for me.

I will still have the Link Parties on Wednesdays,
so be sure to look out for those. :)

I wanted to show you today how I made some decor for my bedroom.
I must say, our bedroom gets the shaft compared to everywhere else in the house, but for once I decided to make something cute to hang above the bed.

I had bought this vintage window at a local store for $15 a few months ago.
Just a few weeks ago I decided what to do with it.
I went outside to take measurements and the glass had shattered everywhere!
It had fallen over THAT DAY!
Of course!
Well, the hubby is super kind and fixed it for me.

This is what I did with it…

All I did for it was design, cut and peel vinyl for it.
I included words/phrases I associate with us:

“You’re everything I never knew I always wanted”
{from “Fools Rush In”}
Bliss.
Eternity.
Family.
XOXO.
Merkley.
Fun.
Joy.
Together Forever.
Invincible {the Muse song}
etc.

I added it to the window,
and then added a wreath I bought for a BUCK at Savers.

I LOVE how it turned out, and am glad that it adds a little something to the bedroom.


What’s even better was that it was
QUICK & EASY!

 

I LOVE how it turned out! It’s perfect right above our bed. :)

Hope you like it too.

ENJOY!

UPDATE – 4/2013

Since we’ve moved I’ve kept the window but ended up ditching the wreath (it was just covering up too much of what I LOVED about the window – the words).

I stenciled the master and still put the window above our bed. I LOVE how it is. :)

What’s crazy is we just finished decorating most the master, and now we’re moving. Looks like we get to start over fresh next month when we move. Oh, the joy! ;)

    Autumn Hassell :

    Where did you get all those vinyl stickers from??

    • 41

      I have a vinyl machine that I cut them with. There are several etsy shop owners who do custom vinyl or if you would like a personal recommendation, email me, and I’ll send you to my friend who cuts vinyl. :)
