Here is a great wreath for the Holidays. Remember as we have mentioned before,
changing the colors or materials will allow you to make a wreath for anytime and any
decor. This is a fun project, let the kids help out this one, because you will be working
with less fragile materials.
(1) Salal (Lemon Leaf) Wreath 18"
(1) Pomegranate-bag of Smalls 3oz
(2) Berry Spray-Red
(1) Artichoke-bag Small
Scissors, Wire Cutter, Glue Gun or Glue Skillet.Step 1)
Starting with our Salal Leaf Wreath makes this project really quick.
Shake out any loose leaves and set them aside (DO NOT DISCARD THE FALLEN
LEAVES, WE WILL USE THEM LATER).
Unfold the Berry Sprays and carefully using the wire cutters, cut sprays
into smaller working pieces with one to two berry cluster on each stem.
As in previous projects, you may hot glue the individual items directly to
your wreath, or you may combine the different pieces into a separate assembly, that can
be added to your wreath as one unit.Tip: Always layout your accent
flowers and berries on the wreath base before gluing them in place. This way you get a
feel for the spacing and amount of accents needed..
Use some of your extra Salal Leaves to blend in where needed. Now you
can add a few Artichokes for contrast of color and form. Tip: I usually
work on a table that has a covering of white paper. You can get white paper from your
grocery store, bakery or meat shop. The paper makes for a bright work surface and easy
Congratulations! And Enjoy.
