It’s Friday, woohoo! Break has officially begun and I’m headed to the mall to pick up some last minute gifts (wish me luck!). But before I head out I had to come and share the last of my holiday crafts! I like to think I saved the best for last. In case you missed the title it’s my winter wreath! Last year I made my Snowman wreath which is out again this year. My favorite thing about that wreath was that after the holidays were over I was still able to keep it up because he was more of a winter wreath than a Christmas one. I wanted to do the same thing this year.
My inspiration for this years wreath came from a post that Censtational Girl did. I had this idea to do felt snowflakes on my wreath and here is what I came up with!
Once I had all the snowflakes cut it was super easy to put together. The tough part was cutting out the snowflakes. Well, it wasn’t so much tough as it was tedious. I used a white wool felt fabric and a snowflake that I printed and put on card stock that I used as a tracer. I cut a few out every night here and there while catching up on some shows.
I used a very fine black marker and cut inside the marker so that you wouldn’t see the black on the snowflake. Once I had all of them, about 50, I took the felt and cut strips and wrapped it around the foam wreath form.
While the red bow is quite festive, once the holidays are over I’m planning on taking it out and replacing it with something a little less Christmas and more winter! Of course I’ll let you know what I end up doing!
