I just made this easy DIY house number 8 wreath craft in 5 minutes! It couldn’t have been simpler and turned out so much cuter than a five-minute craft has any right to. I’m very happy with the house number wreath – it’s natural and bold – and the fact that it cost less than $20 to make doesn’t hurt either.
At first, I had no plans to blog about this craft. It seemed way too specific: how many people could want to make a number 8 wreath?!
But then, I realized that likely most streets in the world have a number eight on it. Unless it’s a very short street? Maybe this craft isn’t so specific to just me after all.
Also, what’s fun for me about this craft is it reminds me of the olden days of blogging. Meaning 10 years ago when the blogging pioneers like me started. Back in the day, you could share an easy fun thing and not overthink it to death.
Death by overthinking seems like the current blogging standard, for good reasons of course. But thousand-word posts with 50 pictures that answer 75 questions are not always much fun to write. They often take days to perfect – not even including the time it takes to actually make the project. It can be a slog.
So this very simple tutorial for a very simple craft is refreshing and fun for me to share! I’m not going to overthink this for even a second. This feels like pure retro fun for me!
Quite simply, here’s how to make a cheerful and cheap number 8 wreath craft…
- 2 of this affordable boxwood wreath (there are two in the package)
- 3 zip ties
- Optional: heavy-duty (wreath) magnet (similar)
