This was inspired by a super cute wreath I saw on Pinterest from semiglossdesign.com !
What I used:
- Cardboard box
- Maribou craft feather (total: 3) or tinsel
- Metal ornaments
- Hot glue gun
I got a metal wreath ring (I bought it with the idea that I would attach the cardboard ring to the metal wreath ring, but I didn't end up needing it.)
First, I did use the metal wreath ring to trace out a cardboard ring. You could also use a plate or a tray.
I planned to glue the ornaments and then fill in with feathers.
Before gluing any ornaments down, I planned which ones would go where -- with different colors and different sizes. I used some pieces of tape to help keep them from rolling around while I was planning the design. Then I took a photo of the colors and design I wanted in case they rolled around.
Then I added on feathers. The feathers came in a 3-foot strip. I cut little pieces and glued them in.
Then i thought it looked a little plain. So I got 2 more feathers and added them on. I had to take little pieces of cardboard and glue them to the back, so that I would have something to glue the feathers onto and make the wreath bigger.
Ta da! Here is the finished product!
That's it! Give it a try! We are good at this!
