Holiday Blue Deco Mesh Wreath with Silver Star and Ornaments
I decided to change it up a bit for this wreath instead of using the standard red and green for Christmas.
I started with a 12" wire wreath form. I wrapped the wreath with this beautiful bright blue deco mesh.
had a large metal star left over from a previous craft project and
decided to cover it with silver glitter. I also added a couple of coats
of acrylic sealer to keep the glitter from falling off. The star
I also added several mini silver ornaments to accent the entire piece.
Someone also mentioned to me that it could be a great wreath for a Cowboys Fan!!
I was digging through my craft
supplies and noticed that I had a good bit of the lime green fun fur
left over from a spring project. I sat there trying to figure out how I
could incorporate this into a holiday wreath....and it hit me....The
I used a 14" Styrofoam Wreath form and wrapped it with
Lime Green Fun Fur Yarn. Yes....this could definitely be The Grinch. I
pinned the hat to the wreath to make sure that it would not come off. I
also added a small piece of cardboard inside the hat to keep it in just
the exact shape that I wanted.
The eyes and and nose are cut out
of foam sheets and then glued to green floral wire. I inserted the
floral wire into the wreath and now I have a face!! I thought...this
is starting to look awesome.
I took black tinsel cord and made the mouth shape and then attached it to the wreath and The Grinch was created.
I also added a yarn loop in the back for hanging.
The completed wreath is about 19" tall (to the tip of the hat).
Overall, I am quite pleased with the way that this guy turned out. Probably one of my favorite wreaths I have made to date!!
This particular wreath will be made to order. Processing time will be approximately 3-5 days.
The first one of these I made sold on Etsy in less than an hour after I listed it!! Quite a popular guy!!
