As you may know I got an amazing preserved lavender wreath this year. CLICK HERE. I wanted to display it in a way that really highlights it, so I choose an antique frame of mine. I also grabbed some foam core CLICK HERE and some adhesive CLICK HERE.

Get ready for 2018! Listen to our thoughts on the new colors.
I used this technique on my wreath and a little portrait. The steps are the same.
I cut the board to the right size to fit in the frame, then applied the adhesive to the foam core.
Next I cut the velvet to a size about 1 inch larger in width and height as the board. I smoothed the velvet on the board, .
I placed the foam core into the frame and used tape to keep the board in place.
You can use tape CLICK HERE or glazer points CLICK HERE to secure the board in place. Then I used a ice pick to poke two holes in the board.
Lastly I threaded a wire through the holes to attach the wreath or the picture in place. I twisted the wire together on the back of the board. Actually I didn’t find the wire when I was looking, so I just used a paper clip. It was harder to bend than my wire, so I don’t recommend a paper clip, but if you are desperate, it will do.
That is all there was to it.
And now my hallway has a bit of color. You can see the reflection of our Christmas tree in the mirror.
You can see the wreath below.
With a neutral home, a little bit of color really makes a difference. I love, love this color.
It’s even more beautiful in person.

Ginger Valdes says
So clever and unique. Love them both! I’ve promised myself to use this idea with the frames I already have surrounding uninspired artwork. Someday.
Norma Rolader says
Oh my how beautiful and thank you for sharing a wonderful way to display items
What a lovely idea! It showcases the wreath while not overwhelming it. Your home is lovely and I plan to blame you for my change in decorating style…..just in case husband asks!
Cheryll, that’s what I’m here for! Blame away.

A great idea – and old frames are so interesting to use when you take the UNinteresting pictures out of them. They are sometimes works of art themselves.
Thank you for this lovely site. The little wreath is just what I needed to complete “my new look”. I have everything else and even the colors are perfect for us. One of my granddaughters copies “the look” and makes me proud. One day we’ll be taking care of wedding plans. Merry Christmas to you and your family. God Bless us all…….e

Anita, that is the most gorgeous way to display your wreath. The frame is beautiful and the turquoise backing with the lilac color of the lavender wreath are just perfect together. You have great ideas!
Aww hugs to you Naomi.
