I am so excited about this project! It turned out way better than I hoped and will be the perfect centerpiece for my new mantle! You could also hang this on the door if you want, but I want to look at it all the time!
Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores asked me to create something fun for the holidays within the theme “Winter Woodland.” This Winter Woodland mantle wreath is what I came up with.
Right now you can enter the #Makeitgiveit sweepstakes! It’s a partnership between Jo-Ann and the National Military Family Association this holiday season. To celebrate, they want to give you a $100 Jo-Ann gift card as part of our Holiday Make it – Give it Sweepstakes! Entering is easy, just share a picture on Instagram of a holiday project you are working on and tag it with #MakeItGiveIt and you’re entered! You have until December 25th, so start snapping pics! They’ll pick 5 winners and announce them on December 30th. They’ll also be donating 5 – $100 gift cards to the National Military Family Association to distribute to families. See official rules here: http://bit.ly/MIGI14. All entries will be featured on the Make Gifts Merrier Holiday Hub at http://share.joann.com, so be sure to check it out!
I had about a million different ideas, but I couldn’t settle on anything, so I did what I usually do; wander aimlessly through the store putting things into my cart hoping to come up with something by the end of the trip.
Here is what I ended up with:
- Rectangle foam wreath form
- 2 bags of moss
- 1 bottle brush tree with the stump removed
- a snowflake floral pick
- white reindeer figure
- wooden Peace cut out
Winter Woodland Mantle Wreath
I started out by gluing the moss on the front of the wreath with my hotter than the gates of Hades glue gun and I have a huge blister on my thumb to show for it. Be more careful than me!
Next I placed my deer and tree into the wreath and glued them down. I added moss around them on the inside.
I kept adding moss around the sides until I ran out. I didn’t put any on the back or bottom because I want it to be able to stand up.
I thought about paining my little wooden peace cut out, but I liked the natural wood look for my winter woodland project. I did use some Extreme glitter Mod Podge to give it some fun little sparkle though.
Because I am just using it on my mantle I just put it in front of the wreath, but you could definitely attach it if you want it all one piece.
I pulled the snowflake pick apart and then just hung the 3 separate snowflakes behind the wreath. It took me about 30 minutes start to finish and I am SO happy with it! This would make a great gift to give to someone…like yourself!
Where would you put this little beauty?
