Tips for Making a Farmhouse Shovel Wreath

Here are some tips to keep in mind as you create your DIY farmhouse shovel wreath. First and foremost, consider your color scheme. You can choose any color that suits your home decor. Experiment with metallic hues, white, or gray to create a different look. You can also choose different colors for your bow and flower accents.

Using a strong adhesive is important to ensure that your wreath stays together over time. While hot glue works great for this project, you may also want to consider using a stronger adhesive like E6000 for added durability.

Be patient as you work through the project. Allow ample time for the spray paint to fully dry before adding any other elements to the shovel. Rushing this step may cause the paint to smudge or chip.

Get creative with your accents! While we used eucalyptus and gerbera daisies, feel free to use other faux flowers or greenery that you love. You can also add other accents like ribbon, or even small decorative signs to make your wreath uniquely your own.

Finally, don’t be afraid to experiment. This DIY project is all about letting your creativity shine! Try out different techniques or add your own personal touches to make your farmhouse shovel wreath a true reflection of your style.

  • 1 Large Kids Plastic Shovel
  • Black Spray Paint
  • Faux Eucalyptus
  • Faux White Gerbera Daisy
  • Burlap Ribbon
  • Twine
  • Zip Ties


  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue
  • Scissors


  1. Gather your supplies.
  2. Start by applying 2 coats of black spray paint to the shovel. Allow the paint to dry completely.
  3. While the paint is drying, create a bow with the burlap ribbon. To do this, take 12 inches of the ribbon and create 2 loops. Secure the loops together in the middle with a zip tie, then cut the ends of the bow to the length you prefer.
  4. Once the paint is dry, add a line of hot glue to the shovel and attach a few pieces of the eucalyptus to both sides of the shovel.
  5. Next, add some hot glue to the bow and attach one of the gerbera daisies to it. Then, add some hot glue to the backside of the bow and press it firmly onto the shovel.
  6. For the handle of the shovel, add a dab of hot glue to the top and start wrapping the twine around the entire handle, ensuring to cover it completely. Cut the end of the twine and use a dab of hot glue to secure it in place.
  7. Once everything is attached, fluff and adjust the bow and flowers as needed to create your desired look.
  8. Finally, add a ribbon or hook to the back of the shovel to hang it up as a wreath.
