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!
