25  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Mid Century Modern Wreath (with tutorial) on: December 08, 2011 04:24:54 PM
I decided to finally make a wreath, so I sketched up some ideas and came up with this!



I started off by studying some sun burst clocks from the 1950's, then went to work!

I'll do a short tutorial, if you want to create your own untraditional wreath!

Supplies:

Styrofoam wreath
White Duct Tape (or ribbon)
Bamboo Skewers
Styrofoam balls (mine were already covered in glitter!)
cardboard
glue
modge podge or acrylic medium
glitter
Clear Protectant Spray
Paint



I cut out the diamond shapes, painted them, then covered them in medium to adhere the glitter.  After the glitter was dry I sprayed them with the Protectant Spray to hold the glitter in place.  I then covered the wreath in duct tape and covered with medium, then glitter, and a spray of protectant spray.  I painted the skewers white, then thread the blue glitter balls on.  I glued the red diamonds onto some more bamboo skewers and stuck them all around the wreath.



I decided to add a cardboard bow, also covered in glitter!  There you go!



Here are some close ups!  Hope you like it!





PS:  i know .... our door desperately needs to be painted, just try to ignore it, I do!

I used a 5mm hook i think ..... don't remember now!  To do the increase of the rounds, i did i think i did it like you'd normaly increase in the round.  start off with 7 sci n the loop, then do 2 sc in each st from previous rnd in next rnd 1 sc in first st and 2 sc in next st all the way around until you reach the end of this rnd.  then the next rnd you'd do 1 sc in the next 2 st, then 2 sc in the next st for the rnd.  and so on and so forth.  you can always adjust the size of the hat by doing more rnds of increases if it seems a bit small.  it's supposed to be a bit big on top, so you can gather it to form the forehead wrinkles!  good luck, can't wait to see your finished projects!!

Yay!!!! I am so so glad that you like everything!  I have to say, it was hard to part with that bag!  Glad you've used it already!  It had been so long since I sent the package, I'd forgot all the goodies I'd packed in there!  Smiley
