A Merry Farmhouse Christmas

[Check out my 2019 vintage Christmas projects available now in my shop!]

My favorite place to rescue junk is from individuals. I love talking with them and hearing the stories behind the pieces. The thrill of the hunt is always a great high and at this lovely car restorer’s home, I found this fabulous oil drip pan.

It may be plain looking and dirty, but with a little elbow grease and cleaning, I made a gorgeous farmhouse Christmas wreath! This oil drip pan is too fabulous for just Christmas! You can easily switch out the floral and the sign for any season!

Here’s how I made this Farmhouse Christmas Wreath:
– After cleaning, spray the pan with a clear enamel to protect from rust (found in spray paint aisle)
– Cut up pieces of green floral foam to fit securely into the well.
– Two bunches of Christmas greenery from the craft store.
– Cut up the stems in the bunches with a wire cutter.
– Insert them individually into the foam and arrange evenly.
– Tie the sign to the front handle.

This wreath is 19″w x 7″d. I discovered that it also looks great on a mantle!
