We’re just at the beginning of December but my mind is on Christmas; planning meals, activities to do with the kids, finishing decoration… and talking about decoration, a Christmas without a front door wreath is like a beach without water, right?
We made ours last year and I’m still in love with it, so I thought I could share it in case you don’t have one and want to make it.
Basically, you need cardboard, scissors, nuts, pine cones, tinsel, spray paint, glitter and hot glue, but you can add baubles to replace any of the previous or just add them.
Wrap the tinsel around the cardboard, and hot glue all the elements you want to add. I previously sprayed paint in silver all I wanted to use.
The nuts are empty, we opened them carefully and ate the inside, and with some hot glue we put it back together and spray painted.
The stars are made out of regular plain paper. You only need to draw a star (I love 5 point stars), cut it and fold it. If you add a drop of hot glue at the center, backwards of course, it will hold the shape.
The little balls are made out of dough, covered with glitter.
For the rosette, I printed a music sheet of paper and folded in an accordion shape. I printed as well “Merry Christmas” in regular paper and Miss S cut it. Meanwhile, Miss A draw another star on a cereal box and cut it, added some glue and glitter on top. Have I ever told you how much I love glitter? lol
Here it is in our front door.
This year it is not alone, it has a new friend, our Christmas bauble tree.
Isn’t it easy?? Now, if you don’t have a wreath is because you don’t want, no excuses.
If you liked it you can Pin it for later.
