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!


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

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!!
