Our home is pretty over-the-top when it comes to Christmas decorations. Not that we needed one more thing, but I made yet another wreath. This time it was for Child #3 who thought he should have one on his door. Since I wanted to show you how I make wreaths, I thought I would use the opportunity to show you.
I want to be clear that I didn't buy a thing. Everything I used was already in the house and either repurposed or leftover from other projects. This one happens to be with Matchbox-type cars but you seriously could use anything. If I were doing one for Child #2, I would perhaps incorporate book pages, sheet music, scripts, or art supplies. If doing one for Child #1, it could be all about Star Wars or fishing. The youngest would appreciate balls or baby dolls. Notice in no instance did I say Christmas ornaments, but you can definitely use those too.
The only other materials I used were good fabric scissors, floral wire, and wire cutters.
- Attach beading.
- Cut ribbons into strips about 12-14" long, with angled ends. Space them around the wreath and tie them in place.
- Gather about 25 cars and disburse them around the wreath alternating colors and balancing sizes.
- Wire the cars into place.
- Add a festive bow.
- Hang the wreath in a place of pride.
Now you are thinking, 'What kind of blog is this? She didn't explain anything!' Hey, I've got your back! Sometimes a video is the best way to demonstrate so I made one for you.
