Hi Skip to my Lou readers! My name is Mallory and I blog over at Classy Clutter with my best friend Savannah. I am so thrilled to be guest posting here today I can’t even stand it! Thanks so much for having me Cindy!
Today, I’m going to share with you a super easy, inexpensive and most importantly CUTE Christmas wreath! If you don’t have a wreath on your door yet this year, you’ve gotta try this.
You will need:
A wreath form
Red satin for bow (optional)
Let’s get started!
1. First, you’ll take your wreath form and wrap it in red ribbon. I used red, satin ribbon.
2. Next, cut out lots and lots of petals! I did two sizes of a tear drop shape with a point on both ends to get the look of the poinsettia petal.
3. Third, layer your larger size petals in the shape of a flower on your wreath form, using hot glue to hold them in place.
4. Next, take your smaller petals and run a thin line of hot glue along the bottom.
5. Pinch your felt petal where you’ve placed your glue to create a 3D look. This helps your top layer of the flower really pop off the wreath form.
6. Finally, Glue 5-6 petals in a cluster to create your poinsettia. I did some flowers with 5 petals and some with 6 depending on how full I wanted each flower to look.
7. Last, take some faux berries, pearls, or beads to embellish the center of each flower. I also added a few red berries poking out from behind the poinsettias just for fun.
Oh! I also decided to add a satin bow to the botton of my wreath. I sewed a long satin sash, tied it in a bow and pinned it to the wreath form. You could also use ribbon or a pre-made bow if you want to add one! I think it would be so pretty to do a contrasting color like white or silver or a fun ribbon!
Then, ta-da! You’re done!
I loved this project because it was pretty quick and inexpensive. I love the impact it makes on my front door! We’re ready for Christmas! Are you?
Thanks again for having me Cindy! Hope you’ll all stop by my blog and say “hello”!
