Christmas Wreath Tutorial!

Last week I showed you my Christmas Wreath! Wanna know how I made it?! Well, here you go!

Take a plain grapevine wreath:


Start tying ribbons into knots onto the wreath. 


Then add more sizes and lengths (Look familiar? I used the left over ribbon from my Christmas Ribbon Garland!) until you get the "look" you want!


For the "P", I got a plain wooden letter from Hobby Lobby and spray painted it red. It was a little plain for me, so I decided to get some lime green paint and put polka dots on it! 


The eraser of a pencil makes the perfect dots (a little trick I have used for years!)!


...keep "dotting!"


Then I decided it needed a little "sparkle," so I put green glitter onto the "P!" (make sure your "dot" paint is still wet so the glitter will stick!)


And then...



A cute "P" for my Christmas Wreath!

It got late and I got tired so I don't have picture for the next part, but I think you can handle it! I added red and green ornaments on the wreath to fill in the gaps that the ribbon didn't quite cover. I tied the ornaments into the wreath and then put a tiny dot of hot glue where the ornament touched the wreath to hold it into place. This is what it ended up looking like:


Yay! That was easy, right?!
