I went to hobby lobby with no idea besides yarn that I knew I was going to use. So while winging it I was randomly picking things up and finally something struck me.
Stuff I used: 18 inch wreath form, red/white yarn, peppermint gift tags, one red sign and one hollow cardboard sign, chalkboard paint, foam brush, hot glue, scissors (n i think thats all) oh and white paint pen
wrap your wreath form and wrap and wrap and wrap...this part takes a while, watch a movie
done yet? ok wrap your white in sections around your form, up to you how far apart you want them
get all the way around, tie off and go back the other way, easy to cross over wreath and aim for the bottom of the cross before
done...not where you want them or not even? best part is you can play around with them until you like what you see.
next I placed everything where I thought I wanted it...
but maybe i was wrong...
nope I was right, then hot glue in place
While wrapping the wreath ( did I mention it took a while) I got bored and painted my first sign
I free handed it, think it looks funner that way...I used a paint pen (see it on the very edge of the picture) pick on up at walmart, best idea ever...eventually I went over this again and added little dots to the corners of each letter
subtle but cuter I thought
stuff for chalkboard sign, never used chalkboard paint before
I had previously added chalkboard paint to the cardboard sign, 4 coats just to make sure I got it right, and then I took my paint pen and made little dots around the edges of the sign. I think I like dots today.
attach with hot glue and DONE!
Just add Chirstmas lights and yay...my front door is green and this doesn't look very green but thats why I made a red and white wreath!
Definitely the longest tutorial type thing I've ever done on here, but I'm pretty proud of my project that didn't only take me 15 minutes.
