I hope you, “Dig it, man.” I walked into the dollar store 2 weeks ago while my husband was in the shoe store next door, and I saw these bright beautiful garden gloves on the rack right in front of the door. I immediately picked up a few pairs, felt them, and tried to envision a “Spring Wreath”. It was hard…there were so many people people in there, and I was a bit annoyed to be honest (hint: avoid the dollar store on Saturdays). I took a few deep breaths, walked around and came back to the gloves. I knew this could work if I just took my time. Little did I know the “Garden Glove Spring Wreath” would turn out so darn cute.
I am so happy I stuck with this, and didn’t go join Rick at the shoe store! This “Garden Glove Spring Wreath” is probably the cutest wreath I have ever designed. It even blows away the “Garden Hose Wreath” as far as I am concerned 😯 . I totally dig how simple it was to make.
Lets’a not forget it only cost $11 bucks. I nearly croaked when I realized how inexpensive.
Here’s how I did it!
-1 dollar store round green foam wreath (see photos)
-8 pairs of dollar store gloves in preferred colors (I separated each pair and used 1 glove at a time on the wreath.)
-1 metal dollar store frog yard stick (cut off stick part with metal cutters-if no metal cutters, find another frog 😉 )
-dollar store garden name tag (w/ permanent marker)
-Cut off tags on all gloves and lay-out your design. If you decide to use my design, use 1 glove at a time. I used 3 patterns total, and alternated in groups of 3’s. The photo shows this. In other words: GREEN GLOVE, POLKA DOT GLOVE, CHECKERED GLOVE.
-Once you have your basic lay-out done, use a stapler (TIP:large safety pins will work too!) to connect gloves to themselves after you wrap it around the wreath. The photos below show this best.
-Slide your gloves around that are connected with the stapler so they are spaced out on foam wreath. Fluff those gloves!
-Use thin wire to attach frog to front of wreath.
-Have fun and write something fun on tag and stick in frog. I didn’t even need glue.
