Easy Winter Wreath

easy-winter-wreath

I don’t know why, but I have an obsession with Wintery looking things!  I almost love decorating in January as much as I do for Christmas! Put me anywhere near White, Silvers, Golds, Mint, Light Blues, etc and I’m a happy girl!  So, I decided to create a wreath that I could use all the way until I decorate for Valentines Day!  I originally shared this tutorial a few weeks ago on Create. Craft. Love – if you haven’t checked Jill out – head on over there!  She’s crazy talented!

I was visiting my family and one evening my sister and I decided we wanted to make some wreaths!  So, we ran to Michael’s and got her a wreath form and all our supplies!

supplies

Supplies needed:

16″ Floracraft Foam Wreath Form
2 Ribbons – 1 to wrap your wreath and the other to make your bow
Craft Wire
Large Floral Accent (Cut into 2 pieces.  Ashland is a great brand to look at!)
Pick (Cut into 2 sections)
1 Garland (Cut up into mini picks. Again, Ashland is a great brand to look at.)
Wire Cutters
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Start by wrapping your wreath in a ribbon.  I like to put a dab of hot glue every few times around the wreath!  Also, I prefer a wire ribbon!  Also, for winter, I love if the ribbon has a glitter look.  It stands out so much better!

Next make your bow!  My sister is a bow making fool and helped me make this tutorial for Bow Making a few years back.  Feel free to reference it when making you bow.  

When choosing the ribbon for your bow, I suggest finding something with a texture to it.  This crochet looking ribbon turned out SO fun!  

Once we tied the bow and attached it to the wreath using hot glue, then we cut our Large Floral Accent into 2 sections and attached them underneath the bow using hot glue.  Initially we just hot glued the top section down.  Then after we finished up the wreath, we stood it up to see how they would fall and just added dabs of glue to a few spots to attach them how we wanted the accents to fall.

Next we cut our white picks into 2 pieces and attached them, barely under the large floral accent, but to where they could still be seen well.

Last, we cut up our garland into tiny pieces and added them where needed using hot glue.  They really finished the wreath off!  We were beyond happy with how classy and wintery it turned out!
