IMPOSSIBLY EASY Natural Holiday Wreath
Here's how to make an IMPOSSIBLY EASY wreath for the holidays:
STEP 1: USE A FRESH OR FAUX GREENERY WREATH FOR THE BASE.
STEP 2: GATHER NATURAL ITEMS FROM YOUR YARD, SUCH AS LEAVES, TWIGS, FLOWERS, BERRIES, PINECONES, EVEN THISTLES AND BURDOCKS. WEEDS MAKE GREAT PIECES FOR THIS. SPRAY THEM WITH METALLIC SPRAY PAINT, I USED SILVER, BUT METALLICS IN GOLD, RED, BLUE, ETC. WORK WELL ALSO. DIP THE TIPS OF THE SPRAYED PIECES IN HOT GLUE, AND ATTACH TO YOUR WREATH BASE.
STEP 3: CLOSEUP OF SPRAYED PIECES - HERE I USED HOLLY BRANCHES, HYDRANGEA FLOWERS, AND TWIGS FROM MY YARD. ADD A BOW IF YOU'D LIKE, AND HANG WHEN FINISHED.
When evenly adding sprayed pieces around the wreath, use multiples of the same piece in odd numbers - for example, 3, 5, or 7. It's an old florist's trick for making an arrangement look balanced!
