Hi everyone! I’ve been having so much fun decorating with my mini wreaths this Christmas season. I’ve got four ideas for you today, but believe it or not, there are more to come! Here’s hoping you don’t get sick of seeing them.
I’ve been using them in conjunction with vintage or vintage-looking supplies that I’ve had on hand. No rocket science here today, just some fun ways you can decorate for the holidays using vintage “junk” you have on hand and a few cheap craft supplies.
From the moment I “accidentally” laid some mini wreaths on a pile of vintage Bingo cards, I knew a star was born.
Combined, they create an attractive, monochromatic look that fits in with all sorts of Christmas decor. Just hot glue a wreath on the card, and then loop some string through a hole in the top to hang. I’ve made a dozen and have almost sold out at the Shaker craft fair at $3.50 each. Everybody seems to love them!
Once I began to realize the possibilities, I rooted around my work room and stumbled upon these cool, rusty stars. Again, I simply hot glued a wreath to the center and brought them over to the craft fair. All but one have sold for $5.00 each.
Before bringing them to the fair, I glued some plain antique white string to the back for hanging.
This glittery star ornament is one of my favorites. I die cut them out of vintage music paper glued to card stock, using my Sizzix Big Kick. Then I decorated the edges with vintage glitter.
While trying to decide how to decorate the center, my mini wreaths came to mind (of course). They are also for sale at my craft booth, singly, as well as attached to some vintage kitchen wares. (I’ll show you those soon!)
And finally, I hot glued mini wreaths to the center of small, vintage pie pans. Shortly, I’ll show you how I came up with a simple way to hang them easily. Out of the seven I’ve made, four have sold at $6.00 a piece.
Have I gotten your mind whirling with other ideas for decorating with these little wreaths? I’d love to hear suggestions. If you make some of the wreaths or end up decorating with them this year, I’d LOVE to see some photos. A sweet reader just sent a photo of my jute and mini wreath ornaments she made with her grandchildren. They. Were. Awesome. I’ll post the photo soon.
Wishing you all a blessed
and happy Thanksgiving!
