DIY - Vintage-inspired Christmas Wreath

Posted by Administrator on 11/19/2012 to Tutorials / Craft ideas


What you'll need:

Step 1 - Cut the doily just past the centre mark.

Step 2 - Place the doily over one section of the foam wreath & stretch it in half. Make sure the edge of the doily covers as much of the base as possible.

Step 3 - Use the hot glue gun to attach the doily around the base. Glue about half of the doily circumference first. CAUTION: the glue will seep through the doily & could burn you if you're not careful!

Step 4 - Now stretch the inside of the doily & glue down to the half way mark again.

Step 5 - Glue the outside of the other half of the doily, & then the inside.  You will end up with about a quarter of the foam uncovered. You'll also have a little section bare where you cut the doily in half.  This won't be visible once hanging on your door!

Step 6 - Glue the first lot of fabric flowers around the outside of the uncovered foam.  Then glue a row on top of the foam, then lastly on the inside of the wreath.

Step 7 - Use the hot glue gun to attach your desired decorations ... and you're done!
