My friend who I have mentioned before because when she cleans her craft room gives me first dibs gave me a big bagful of embroidery hoops. So naturally, I decided to make a wreath using one. But when I got the bag out I spied a grapevine wreath and the project came to life.
Looking the worst for wear, I took beading wire and wired the wreath so it would stay together. I got out the silver spray paint and it perked the wreath right up.
The next step, run to the Dollar Store to get some embellishments. I decided on a monochromatic color scheme and bought silver poinsettias. I already had the silver snowflakes and ribbon mesh from a Halloween project.
Pulling the poinsettias apart I placed them on the snowflakes. Just play around with the placement until it is pleasing to your eye. Once I liked it I hot glued it in place.
A bow was fashioned from the mesh and glued and wired to the wreath. But it needed a little something more. Back to the Dollar Store. I bought the clear lights that work on a battery. Use the wire to tie it on the wreath. Now the battery pack was tricky. I wired it behind the ribbon with thicker wire and dabbed a little glue on the back. Place the battery pack so the batteries can be changed without removing it from the wreath.
It was an easy project and adds elegance and style to Christmas decorating. Now be sure to check out everyone’s wreath projects. Scroll down to the bottom and you will be so inspired. Will you make a silvery wreath for the Christmas Season?
