Hope everyone’s doing great and looking forward to Christmas! Well, I’m already in the holiday mood and feeling Christmassssy So, here I’m today with a Christmas wreath and would love to share a tutorial with you all!
Itsy Bitsy has actually stocked up a ton of exciting, glittery and colourful products which are perfect for the holiday season and can be readily used, but I wanted to play around with the raw material available in the store and create something unique which goes with the theme and ended up making a wreath!
So, this is the piece I worked on! Okay, so let me walk you through this project!
Step 1: I chose three different sizes of thermocole spheres
Step 2: Then I inserted craft sticks to each sphere and painted a few of ’em with antique gold and a few with crimson red and let them dry!
Step 3: I planned on decoupaging a couple of spheres, so I had to tear the tissue. Tearing a tissue can be done in two ways – either tear it along the design casually or dip a paint brush in water, run the damp brush along the design and tear it! I always go with the second method as it’s easier for me.
Step 4: When working with a tissue, we’ll always have to separate the layers and just use the top layer. So, here I’m peeling off the top layer which will be glued on the sphere with decoupage glue / mod podge. I used Little Birdie’s Decoupage glue.
Step 5: Then I applied decoupage glue on the painted spheres (which were dry) and dusted them with glitter and confetti and let them dry!
Step 6: Then I thought I could use a cardboard for the base and drew two circles in order to cut it in the shape of a ring.
Step 7: With a glue gun, I stuck the spheres randomly.
Step 8: Then it was the time consuming part – Sticking feathers (with the glue gun) in between and behind the spheres!
Here’s my pretty wreath ready to be used for decoration….
