With only a couple more weeks until Christmas, I thought it was about time that I take my spring wreath down and replace it with a Christmas wreath! Yes I said “take my spring wreath down” and I’m slightly embarrassed haha.
I swear you guys, it literally feels like it was just spring and the whole year pretty much got away from me. But I won’t let winter come without a winter wreath so here it is!
I saw these wreaths at World Market as was inspired to create my own version.
- White Floral Wreath Form
- Faux Fur Grizzly in White (1/2 yard) – I got mine at Joanne’s for 40% off.
- Snowy Owl Figurine
- Accents: Snowy Pinecones, Twigs, & Pine Sprigs
- Hot Glue Gun
This was such an easy project and I’m pretty impress that it came out the way it did.
STEP 1 CUT
Cute the faux fur in strips. I only used two strips to cover my wreath.
STEP 2 WRAP
You’re going to add glue and start to wrap your fur around your wreath adding glue as you go.
Note: You will use a lot of glue! I used about 5 sticks with my mini glue gun.
You’ll just go around and around until you have the wreath fully covered.
STEP 3 GLUE ON ACCENTS
Once your wreath is fully covered, start to attach the twigs and pine sprigs. I left some room in between for the pine cones.
Make it how you would like. It doesn’t have to be perfect or a certain way. Obviously the twigs from our yard were a bit straight compared to the inspiration but that was ok.
I then added the owl. You will have to hold it in place while the glue dries and keep adding some to get it to stay in place. Like I said it doesn’t have to be perfect and it’s trial and error. So do what works for you. I put the pine cones on last to cover up the owls feet.
Here’s my finished wreath! 🙂
I think it came out pretty darn good and it cost me under $15 with Joanne’s coupons and sales. Now I finally have a wreath to hang up and put me in a festive mood for my Ugly Sweater Christmas Party this weekend.
