A Mini Wreath

posted in: Christmas | 4

Christmas crafting started a week or so ago at our Creative Crafting group.  Here is a little mini wreath made from a curtain ring, some twine, little bits of felt, some red berries or sequins and glue.  This can be used as a Christmas ornament on the tree or as a gift topper.

The curtain ring is about 7 cm or 2.5 inches in diameter. I’m showing the ring with a Toonie, the Canadian two dollar coin in the middle to give you an idea of the size. It already had a ring at the top to attach a hook for hanging.  The craft instructor picked up a bag of these at the thrift store for a really reasonable price.  The twine is looped and knotted around the ring using a macrame knot (you can find all the examples in a search)  You need about 3 meters of twine.   Be sure to push all the knots together so none of the white ring shows through.  When you are finished tie off the ends and use a dab of glue to keep it flat to the ring.

Out of green felt I hand cut some holly leaves and did a bit of stitching on them in a lighter green embroidery thread.  Then with some E6000 glue I fastened them on to the top of the wreath.  With a tiny bit of glue add the red sequins to finish off the wreath.

The finished wreath was complete in an hour or two, ready for the tree or a package.

    This is a lovely idea and would be a terrific for a package tie-on that could be hung on one’s tree – I really like the twine/jute.
