There’s just something so peaceful and so magical about the forest, don’t you think? No matter what time of year it is, but especially in winter. The sweet forest animals that leave their tracks in the snow, the glistening slow flakes on pine needles, white pinecones… there’s just something so neat about it. I’ve always loved the forest. Maybe it’s because I am a desert native and our winters look very different. This year I decided my holiday wreath would reflect a cozy, forest winter. Check out my Woodland Plaid Winter Wreath…
Thanks so much to Floracraft for providing me with a wreath form for this project…I love how big it is!
Here’s a list of supplies you will need if you want to create one for your front door or mantle:
- wreath form
- plaid fabric
- bottle brush tree
- plastic deer
- gold dots
- gold glitter
- Mod Podge
- sponge brush
- hot glue gun + sticks
- burlap & gold ribbon
The first thing you want to do is rip your fabric in 2 inch wide strips and wrap your wreath form, securing with hot glue at the back of the wreath. Once you cover the wreath, hot glue the gold dots sporadically on the tree.
Then using Mod Podge and your sponge brush, paint the deer’s antlers and sprinkle with gold glitter. Hot glue the tree and deer to the wreath.
Use the burlap and gold flecked ribbon to make a bow and hot glue it to the top of your wreath.
If you have any extra gold dots, you can hot glue those on the wreath as well. I just LOVE the way it turned out! What do you think?
Thanks so much for checking out my Woodland Plaid Winter Wreath today!
