I am super excited to share this easy craft idea with you that is inspired by the Hearth and Hand Magnolia line from Target? Have y’all checked out their amazing Christmas goodies this year? OH MY GOODNESS.
It sold so fast that some of you may not have even got a chance to scoop up one of their yummy wreaths. Luckily I snagged one, and I was inspired by it, and knew I wanted a few more for the back of my chairs. So…
I came up with my own….
Here is my supply list:
- holiday pine pick 2. Eucalyptus pick 3. Brass wreath rings(pack of 6) 4.Smaller bells 5. ribbon of your choice (no link) 6. Bigger bells 7.floral wire 8. gold rub-n-buff 9. gold spray paint
You are going to start by spray painting your bells from the garland gold, and cutting them off the garland.
Then use the gold Rub-n-buff and rub it around the bell and the wreaths to give them both an antique look. I like the sponge brushes for this.
Using a small sponge and your black ink pad, rub a little black ink around your bells to give them a little bit more of a vintage/antique feel.
See how the ink and rub-n-buff gives them some character?
Next, gather all your stems and supplies; then you will want to cut them apart. I bought one pine stem, and one eucalyptus stem per wreath. Then I cut them apart to put on each side of the wreath.
Cut them apart and put them in their bunches.
Then use your floral wire and just start wiring your floral bunches together. Then you wire the bunches to the gold hoop in the center of the bunch.
Cover the wire with ribbon, by wrapping it around, and hot gluing each end. Then attach your bells by adding twine or the same ribbon to your bells, and hot glue them as well.
Hot glue a ribbon that you have tied into a bow, over the ribbon you have wrapped over the wire.
Then loop a ribbon over the wreath top for hanging.
This makes it super simple to attach it to a door, or the back of a chair; which is how I used them. I also added another small bow to the top of my wreath using hot glue.
TIP: because I was making 7 wreaths for the back of 7 chairs; I found it easy to cut everything out together, and have each step done, and work in an assembly line type process.
When I was finished I just tied them to the back of all my chairs. They look so amazing.
Tip 2: If need be, you can add a little hot glue to the pine and help it stick to the wreath on the sides.
I hope you are inspired to make some of these lovely wreaths this holiday season.
Just as I was inspired by the beautiful ones from Hearth and Hand…
I would also love to know what Inspires you?
