WINTER wreath making supplies:
how to make a winter wreath
STEP 1: Preparing Wreath
Your wreath may be a bit flat, so you will need to fluff up the branches to make the wreath have a fuller appearance. To do this, gently pull each wire branch straight in varying directions.
STEP 2: Glue Preparation
Before starting any messy craft project, it is always a good idea to protect the work surface. This can be done by placing newspaper, craft paper, or a dollar store table cloth atop the table.
After protecting the table, pour a generous amount of glue onto a plastic or paper plate.
STEP 3: Prepare Snow
To make it easier to sprinkle the faux snow, pour some into a bowl.
STEP 4: Apply Glue
Dip the paintbrush into the glue and gently apply the glue on a few branches. Do only a few branches at the time because you don't want the glue to dry before applying the artificial snow.
STEP 5: Apply Snow & Continue
Sprinkle faux snow over the branches that you just glued. Shake the branches lightly to get off the excess snow. Continue applying glue and snow until you have the desired coverage. You can add as much or as little snow as you want.
After the wreath is the way you like, let the wreath dry completely before moving on.
STEP 6: Decorate Wreath
The easiest way to attach decorations to the wreath is with a hot glue gun. Play around with the decoration until you have the desired appearance. Then, attach the decorations with hot glue.
STEP 7: Hanger (Optional)
Depending on where you are going to display the wreath, you may want to add a ribbon hanger.
To add a ribbon hanger, decide on the length. Join the two ends of the ribbon together by tieing a knot. So the knot does not show, hot glue it to the back of the wreath.
STEP 8: Bow
A bow is always an attractive accent to any wreath. You can make a bow yourself or purchase a pretied bow from a store.
Simply hot glue the bow to the wreath.
I must admit I was thrilled with the wreath results.
Making your own snow-covered winter wreath is a money saver. The cost of the supplies will be much less than the price of a similar finished wreath at the store.
