Thanksgiving has come and gone and it's now time to 'Deck The Halls With Boughs And Holly'. This year I was invited by Home Depot to participate in their super fun Holiday Style Challenge. They basically sent be a whole bunch of mystery boxes filled with Holiday goodies to decorate decorate one of the rooms in my pad. Part of the challenge consisted in choosing materials found in their stores and giving them a different use for my Holiday decor. This is how this easy DIY Holiday Wreath project came about. Browsing through their isles I came across Felt Weatherseal which I felt was the prefect material to use in this challenge. Actually it was spot on to create this cozy Holiday ornament. Here's how you can make your own:
WHAT YOU NEED
HOW TO MAKE IT HAPPEN
1. Wrap the wreath form with one of the felt weatherseal rolls until it is completely covered. Use pins to hold it in place.
2. Cut the remaining weatherseal in approximately 1" pieces using the zig zag cut scissors. Make sure to cut them in diagonal to create diamond-like shapes in order to resemble leaves.
3. Attatch each piece to the wreath with a pin. Make sure you place them in a way that they cover the pins from the other leaves (see picture above).
4. Once the wreath is complety covered, decorate it as you wish. I used white ribbon to create a bow for the top and a felt nest and bird for the bottom, using White Jordan Almods to resemble bird eggs.
BY THE WAY, the reveal of my challenge will be published on Monday, Deceber 1st. Stay tuned!
