Vintage Winter Wreath

By:

With some simple pearl garland and a variety of vintage brooches and embellishments, you can create a stunning Vintage Winter Wreath that would look beautiful hanging either indoors or out.  This wreath from Mitzi Curi is simple, yet elegant and makes a lovely winter decoration.  Pick from one of Mitzi's several designs for a wreath that you love.  These projects are quick and easy and a great way to enjoy the beauty of winter all season long.

Materials:

  • Pearl Garland (I used three strands to cover a medium foam wreath)
  • Medium foam wreath
  • Various embellishments
  • Hot glue gun

 

Instructions:

  1. Put a dab of glue on the end of the garland to secure it, and begin winding it around the wreath form.  I put the occasional dab of hot glue here and there to keep the garland in place as I wrapped it around, and a big glob to secure the end.

  2. Once you have your base finished, you can experiment with different embellishments!

  3. First, I tried three vintage enamel brooches from the 1960's.  I clustered them at one side of the wreath, using their own pinbacks to secure them.  Thinking they looked a little sparse on their own, I added a velvet bow with a vintage earring center at the top.

  4. Well, that's one version.  I decided to try another, with two brass brooches I purchased recently.  And I added a loop of leftover Prima ribbon at the top.

  5. Well, that version didn't seal the deal for me either.  I decided to hot glue a snowflake ornament on the wreath as a base to give the jewelry I select some additional pizzaz.  In addition, I looped a soft blue vintage satin ribbon at the top for hanging.  Then I went back to my stash of jewelry.  Instead of gluing them permanently, I pinned them in place using their own pinbacks and additional straight pins.
