Easy glitter wreath…

It was a beautiful snowy day here in Connecticut yesterday and I was in the mood to make things for the holidays.

I’ve been digging through boxes and bags and found these small grapevine wreaths that I’ve had for years and never done anything with.  In the same bag was a pile of little silk flowers.  Well, I say to myself, why not combine the two and add a little silver German glass glitter?

I’m delighted with the results and it only took a few minutes.  All you need is glitter, craft glue like Elmers or Aleens, wax paper, a stiff small brush, silk flowers, grapevine wreaths and a hot glue gun.

Pour your glue in an old tin or container and same thing with your glitter.  I use old styrofoam meat containers.  I use a combination of 80 and 90 grit glass glitter, I order from Meyers Imports,  which really covers and looks gorgeous!

Take your silk flowers and remove stem and any little plastic piece in the center.

On a piece of wax paper, put your flower down and brush glue on both sides.  Be sure to cover well.

Lift your flower and put right into your glitter, spoon glitter over the top so your flower is buried.  Press down gently with the spoon so your flower makes good contact with glitter.  Lift out and place on wax paper to dry.  repeat this on as many flowers as you plan to use.

When your flowers are really dry (they should be stiff) hot glue to your grapevine wreath.

finished wreath, I couldn’t help myself and also glittered the wreath!

 

There you have it, easy and I think a really sweet little wreath.
