Present Wreath: Unwrap
a new wreath idea this year.
Small Boxes or Containers (like jewelry boxes)
Weather Proof Paper
All Weather Tape
Flat Wooden Wreath Form
Cover small containers, such as old jewelry boxes, with weatherproof paper, which will hold up outdoors, unlike wrapping paper; seal with all-weather tape. Add decorative bands in contrasting colors, if desired, and tie with ribbon. Attach to a flat wooden wreath form using a hot-glue gun. Affix a satin bow.
Hard Candy Wreath: A yummy looking wreath that's easy to make.
1 coat hanger
Approximately 30 pieces of assorted, wrapped hard candies, suckers, etc.
Approximately 30 pieces of colorful curling ribbon, cut into 8" pieces
Pliers to bend the hanger
A dull pair of scissors to curl the ribbon
Unbend the hanger and cut it in half (this will be enough for 2 kids).
Bend the 1/2 hanger into a circle leaving about 4" at the top to make a hook. Twist the end to make it look like a circle with a hook on it.
Cut your curling ribbon into 8" pieces.
Fold your ribbon in half. In the middle of that ribbon tie one piece of candy. Tie it on the end of the candy where the paper twists.
Now tie the candy with 2 knots tightly on to the hanger. Tie the candy right next to the wire to help cover it up. Use the scissors to curl the ribbon on each end. Repeat the process for all your candy pieces.
Fourth of July Wreath: Make this simple Independence Day wreath and look like a star this 4th of July. Hang it on your front door to welcome your friends and family to your get together.
11 yards 1" wide red-white-and-blue ribbon
20" grapevine wreath
three 4" x 6" American flags
Weave 2 1/2 yards of ribbon through the grapevine wreath. Glue the ends of the ribbons together; this is the bottom of the wreath. Arrange three flags at the bottom of the wreath in a fan shape so they slightly overlap; glue the flags in place. Use a small amount of glue to secure the edges of the flags where they overlap. Cut two 36" lengths of ribbon and fashion a small multi-loop bow from each piece; tie with floral wire. Glue a bow to each side of the wreath. Use the remaining ribbon to make one large multi-loop bow. Glue bow to the bottom of the wreath to cover glued sections of ribbon and flags.
