Ever have a great idea…
only to forget to implement! 🙁
I had a great idea years ago. Take one wreath, and each month, redo it for the season, holiday, or an event. I thought this would be great for anyone who doesn’t have space to store several wreaths.
So December, as I was putting together a Christmas wreath, I thought, what if I take one wreath and redo it each month as a post. Great idea, right?
Then the new year came, and I forgot. So, I’m now posting my winter wreath for January.
Next Monday I’ll get the February wreath done.
January Winter Wreath
I decided to use grapevine wreaths…that’s two. I wanted a thick wreath, so I bought one about 18 inches and one 12.
Then wired them together on the back.
I also wanted a good way to hang the wreath. I use a piece of 16 gauge wire and looped each end into some branches.
Popsicle stick snowflakes
Now for snowflakes! It’s not a very cold or snowy winter around here in Northern AZ. But I wanted a wintery wreath.
Nine craft sticks or popsicle sticks painted white….
And then hot glued into star shapes with a hot glue dollop on the back to hold a floral wire piece.
More dollops of white craft glue on the ends, midway, and center of the snowflakes and then dipped into Epsom salts gives a snowflake look to the craft sticks.
While gathering the supplies for the winter wreath, I came across these clear crystal looking grapes. I didn’t like them as grapes…even though the wreath is “grape”vine!
So I took them apart.
A toothpick makes a quick floral pick to gather a few of those clear grapes. This makes it easy to stick between the branches of the wreath.
My winter wreath…
for one week!
