Christmas Wreath Replacement
I love the look of Christmas Wreaths on all the doors in the neighborhood as you pass by. I love looking at each house and seeing the "creations" that go up instead of wreaths. I got tired of my wreath and made this snowflake instead. Very very easy. I believe I got the idea from Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Magazine 2 years ago. They had something similar to this so I thought I'd give it a try.
If you are looking for something a little different this year from your green wreath with pinecones you may want to try this.
- Paint Sticks
- Large Popsicle Sticks
- Regular Popsicle Sticks
- White craft paint
- Glue-Hot Glue
- Optional-pine bows and pinecone real or fake
Paint all of your sticks white. I watered down my paint quite a bit so it would look whitewashed and not white white. But you can do it as heavy or light handed as you would like.
Decide upon a pattern and lay out your sticks as you would like the snowflake to appear.
Glue your snowflake together.
Step 4- Optional
Spray your snowflake with a glitter spray. I did this and liked it quite a bit.
If you are using greenery and/or pinecones attach them to the back so they peed out through the holes.
Attach the ribbon in the back so you have something to hang it with.
Step 7 Hang and enjoy.
I had my snowflake hanging outside my door for most of the month but moved it inside to the kitchen pantry door as I had a new idea for the outside.
