STUNNING & EASY DIY CHRISTMAS WREATHS
Hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving! At my house we started decorating for Christmas on Thanksgiving. Whether you have started or the idea sounds daunting we have fun ideas for you. Throughout the next few weeks we will share fun do it yourself decoration ideas!
Ornament Wreath How To
Supplies Needed: Straw wreath form, hot glue gun/glue, Ornaments
Begin by hot gluing the large ornaments to the wreath form along the inside and outside edges of the wreath.
Then slowly layer the ornaments until the wreath is covered. Once you have no more room for large ornaments fill in any gaps with the smaller ornaments.
Sweater Wreath How To
Start with your supplies – All you need is an 18 inch styrofoam wreath and a sweater.
First you will need to cover the foam form with the sweater. Cutting along the seam that would start at your armpit and go down your arm.
So now you need to glue it to your wreath form. Lay the sweater right side down and glue a little bit at a time one edge on top of the other.
You will have an ugly seam at the bottom which you will hide with the felt flowers and there will be another seam at the top which you will hide with a sign.
Twine Star Wreath How To
Lay 10 wood shims on a flat surface in a star pattern. Arrange the shims so a thin end on one shim rests on the thick end of another.
At each place where the shims overlap, apply wood glue and press the shims together. Use weights, such as quart cans, to press the wood pieces together for two hours.
Start at one point on the star and wrap twine around the frame until you reach the opposite side. Avoid putting too much tension on the twine. Keep the twine from slipping off by dabbing hot glue on strands at the back of the star.
Cut a piece of twine about 8 inches long and tie a loop in the center.
On the back of the star along one of the five points near the base, glue one loose end from the loop to each shim to hang the ornament.
