Revamped Christmas Wreath

By:

What's old is new again!  Take an old wreath and transform it into something new and fashionable with this Revamped Christmas Wreath tutorial from Amanda Formaro.  With a few basic crafting supplies, you can turn this blah wreath into something you'd be proud to display on your front door.  Feel free to add whatever you'd like when you revamp your wreath.  I think cinnamon sticks, craft birds, and a few cranberry sprigs would look great in a holiday wreath!

Materials:

  • Garage sale wreath
  • Pink spray paint
  • Sparkle snow texture paint
  • Copper glitter paint
  • Floral wire
  • Silk roses
  • Wide ribbon
  • Hot glue gun

 

Instructions:

  1. I found a tattered Christmas wreath in a "free" box at a garage sale. I decided to revamp it and give it a fresh look.

  2. First take the wreath apart by removing all of its embellishments. Mine had pine cones, holly leaves and berries, and some Poinsettias. There were a couple of embellishments I decided not to include in the new wreath. I also decided to add some velvety red roses I picked up at the same garage sale.

  3. After disassembling the wreath I took the Poinsettias apart. Spray paint the Poinsettias with pink spray paint and let dry. Up to 3 coats may be needed. When dry, add copper glitter glue to the edges of the leaves.

  4. Use a palette knife to add sparkle texture paint to the pine cones. This takes a while to dry, overnight is best.

  7. Use floral wire to add all of the elements back on to your wreath. Use hot glue to attach heavier items like the pine cones. Attach bow with floral wire.
