I have been wanting to make a wreath like this for years – since I was originally inspired by one I saw in a Mary Engelbreit Home Companion magazine – gosh maybe 10 years ago. I have a penchant for somewhat tacky, plastic holiday decorating elements, and have been adding to my stash of them over the years. So if I’m still not busy enough getting our new house all set up, and figuring out where to put all our holiday decorations, why not start creating another project?!
This wreath survived the moving purge.
I had bought two cans of Santa Snow and held onto them all these years, for this purpose – to flock my wreath. So I did. It is sort of messy stuff, and took forever to dry. I did like the look.
The magazine article suggested attaching everything with wire. I went with a glue gun for faster results. I shook my completed wreath a few times to look for loose items, and gave them an extra blast of glue. I tried to take an ornament off to switch it with something else, and it wouldn’t budge. So I felt it was good to go.
It was worth the wait.
