Phew, I’ve been in a decorating frenzy the last three days! My halls are officially decked.
Today I’m sharing a fun little ornament project. We are coming up on our 14th Get Your DIY on Challenge: Ornament Tutorials. After this week, there are only two more challenges left!
When I was deciding what kind of ornament I wanted to make, I thought I could make my DIY Twig Wreath on a smaller scale and that’s just what I did.
Here is what I started with:
Don’t mind the painted mason jar lid ring, that was part of a project fail. It happens 🙂
I started by breaking my twigs into 3″ pieces. Then I hot glued them to the flat side of the ring.
I continued adding twigs all the way around.
Then I added a second layer and a few stems from a cranberry cotton easter plant from my front yard to add interest.
I spray painted my mini-wreath white. I also spray painted my star silver.
I decided to add a monogram to my mini wreath, “J” for my last name, James. To add a wintry texture to my letter, I used “Buffalo Snow Flurries” from Michaels. If you have a Christmas Village, this is the most life-like snow! To apply it to my wreath, I spray painted the letter and while it was wet, piled the “snow” on top.
Then I shook off the excess. I did the same to my mini wreath.
I hot glued all of the elements together and added a small piece of silver ribbon to the back as a hanger.
Voila! The red ribbon really pops against the white wreath.
This would also be pretty as a keepsake for each guest at your dinner table. You could even just make one for each family.
