Christmas Wreath Making Directions:
- Apply 2 to 3 coats of spray paint on the wooden letter. Let it dry or use a hairdryer to speed up the process. Use the foam brush to apply polka dots in Martha Stewart Satin Craft Paint. Keep aside.
- Take 3 to 4 pieces of almost 12-inch long greenery, tie them up together with floral wire at the stem, and tuck into the wreath.
Make the second bunch and attach it to the wreath similarly with its stem covered under the head of the first bunch.
- Keep filling up the wreath in the similar fashion until the entire wreath is covered. Use floral wire where needed to secure the greenery to the wreath base firmly.
- You can add extra one or two layers of greenery alongside the first one if you don’t want any part of the wreath to be visible.
- Arrange the berry stems throughout the wreath, and use floral wire at different points to secure them to the base.
- Make a bow with the red silk ribbon and attach to the wreath with hot glue.
- Tie the monogram to the opposite point of the bow with a piece of twine.
- Hang the wreath on your front door.
The polka-dotted monogram letter adds a personal touch and fun to your Christmas wreath. The bow and monogram on the opposite sides balance out each other while the greenery and colorful berries create a unifying look.
