Vintage Winter Wreath
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.
- Pearl Garland (I used three strands to cover a medium foam wreath)
- Medium foam wreath
- Various embellishments
- Hot glue gun
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.
Once you have your base finished, you can experiment with different embellishments!
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.
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.
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.
