I made this project with an old pair of garage sale Plantation shutters.

I removed the hinges on the side of the shutters then using a wire cutter, cut off the stick that moves the slats up and down. 

I reused the stick from the center of the slats.

I nailed it to the back side of the frame to hold down the slats so they wouldn't move.

This is the side I am going to use for the project. 

All the slats are secured in place.

I painted the shutter with Fusion Mineral Paint in Raw Silk



It's a beautiful white that isn't to bright white.

I added a reclaimed hook from another project.

Then I gave the shutter and the hook another coat of paint. 


D ring hangers were added to the back of the shutter for hanging.

Finding the perfect wreath to hang on the hook from around my house was easy and it can be changed up for every season or holiday.

  1. It really is the perfect backdrop! I have some old shutters so I could do this, too. Never too many places to hang wreaths, right? xo Kathleen
