Again, I pulled this DIY from Good Housekeeping. I'm SUCH a fan of GH. I've been a subscriber for a few years now and I think I'm going to be a "lifer". :) I usually can't wait till I get a new magazine in and I read everything and look at everything, turning down corners for things I want to come back to. Sorry... I digress. Haha...
Pretty wreath right? It's so easy it's ridiculous! Here are the instructions:
*At your crafts or floral supply store, purchase an 18-inch grapevine wreath.
*At the floral supply area of the craft store, look for natural pods in a variety of shapes, pinecones, and seasonal nuts from an assorted-mix package to add texture and variety to the wreath.
*Using a hot glue gun, add these dried decorations to the wreath.
*To make stick stars, use sticks from outdoors broken into 3- to 4-inch lengths or use cinnamon sticks.
*Glue them on top of each other to form the star shape and add them to the wreath.
*When all the pieces have been added, place wreath on newspaper or another surface you don't mind getting messy, and spray-paint the entire thing white.
*Allow to dry.
*Loop with wire in back to hang.
That's it! Simple huh!?!? And just think, if you're a traditionalist like me you can tie it off with a big red bow. OOOOORRRRR if you like flair like me (what can I say, I'm a traditionalist with a side of flair) you can tie it off with a big silver, gold, purple, pink, OR WHATEVER color you want. AMAZING, I know. So now I have to decide if I'm going with my usual wreath, or if I'm going to jazz up my front porch with a brand new wreath... oh the decisions!!!!
