How to Make a Natural Wreath

A Wintery White Wreath

You will need:

Vines, Twigs from your yard

Florist Wire

Dried Leaves

A Sharpie

Flat White Spray Paint

Seed Pods

I gathered my vines and twigs and removed all  the leaves.

 

My grandsons picked up fallen leaves and I placed them between the pages of a magazine until they were dry.

I wrapped the vines in a circle and added wire in several places to hold everything together.

After my circle was complete I used hot glue to attached the leaves. I added some artificial seed pods too.

After hot glueing everything, I spray painted the whole thing with flat white.

I used a black sharpie to draw the veins back.  As you can see, I didn’t want the spray to be solid, I left some areas natural.

I used some of my Dollar Tree ribbon to hang it with.  I just tied a knot on each side.

I like the contrast on the brown door.

I was inspired by Martha on the this project.  I didn’t buy anything, I used what I already had for this wreath.

When you scan through your magazines, think about the supplies that you have and recreate things you love.

It’s a good thing~as Martha would say 😉

I will be joining the Copy Cat fun at Debbiedoo’s on Dec.10th~get busy with your copy cat 🙂
