I'm really excited to share today's craft with you guys! I made a split pea wreath for my back door an I'm LOVING it! This was a pretty easy project to make, but it does take time. If you're looking for a pretty DIY wreath that is budget friendly, this is your wreath. So if you're ready, let's get started!!
For this craft you're going to need:
- Foam Wreath
- Mod Podge Matte
- Split Peas
- Paint Brush
I found my foam wreath at the Dollar Tree. Total bargain I know!! I have to stock up on more asap.
I grabbed some split peas from the store and of course my “handy dandy” Mod Podge!! At this point I hadn't decided what color ribbon I planned to use. But you'll find out soon!
Step 1 – Add Mod Podge
I found at perfect container to put my split peas in. I just set my wreath inside and started painting on the Mod Podge. Once I painted on a section, I started sprinkling on my split peas. Pushing the peas into the wreath.
Once the wreath was covered as best as I could get, I let dry 30 minutes.
Step 2 – Fill in Bare Spots
Now that the wreath has dried I started filling in the bare spots. Adding my Mod Podge and peas again.
See how nice and full the wreath is!
Step 3 – Seal in Split Peas
So this last step is important. When I would pick the wreath up the split peas would start falling on the ground, I couldn't have that.
Since the Mod Podge dries clear I thought covering the entire wreath now would work perfectly, and guess what . . . it did!!
Now I don't have to worry about any of the split peas falling off. I've shaken the wreath and nothing. I decided on some white burlap ribbon and of course I had to add a coastal feel to it with a shell. I think the shell looks perfect on it.
Very simple and clean.
I hope you enjoy making one yourself. There will be a time that you think what did I get myself into. But take a “woosa” moment and continue on, believe me it's worth it at the end!
