Christmas Wreath

Hello Foxy friends! It's the start of a new season, which means I have another Christmas wreath for you. I went to Hobby Lobby on Black Friday to check out their deals, and I scored all of this stuff for 50% off. Although when does Hobby Lobby not have everything for half off? Anyway, let's get to it.

What You'll Need:

Burlap Wreath (I've been using the same wreath over and over again, but click here for my full tutorial, click here for the video)
Sign to put in middle (I almost always start here, find the sign, buy the "fluff" to match this and this and this would work)
3 Fun Candy Themed Sprigs
3 Ornament Sprigs
1 Roll of Deco Mesh Ribon

Note: In the end I didn't end up using the Merry Christmas burlap ribbon, perhaps for my next wreath.


Start with a plain wreath, I took apart this wreath and this is what I had left:


Step 1:

Add in the deco mesh ribbon, if you don't know how to do it, follow this tutorial here that I made.


Step 2:

Add the sprigs of candy, I didn't divide them equally on purpose so there would be a space for the "bow"

Step 3:

Fill in the spaces between the candy with the ornament sprigs.

Step 4:

I felt that the ribbon I was going to use that said Merry Christmas didn't really fit the theme that I had in mind. I had some left over Deco Mesh, so I tried to make a bow, but it's super hard. I was just playing around with it, and realized that it rolled very nicely, so I made a rolled "bow". I think it's fun and matches the theme of the wreath really nicely.

Step 5:

Add the sign, I found one that said Santa Please Stop Here, but really any sign will do. And here is the finished product.

And on my door it looks like this:

There you have it, our Christmas wreath, last year I got the burlap part done and never finished, so literally on our door was a blank burlap wreath, pathetic right?  I bought enough supplies and have an extra burlap wreath laying around, so hopefully this weekend I can make another one...I'm thinking I might put that one over the fireplace...hmmm....where to put it, where to put it.
