How to make a Festive Holiday Wreath – by Jenn Shurkus
Hello Everyone! Jenn Shurkus here sharing with you how you can create a festive holiday wreath using Graphic 45 papers and embossed letters created with ColorBox® Gold Sparkle Embossing Powders.
Embossed Sentiment Wreath Supplies:
- ColorBox® Gold Sparkle Embossing Powder
- Top Boss® Embossing Stamp Pad
- Graphic 45 St. Nicholas Papers
- Heat tool
- Hot Glue Gun
- Paper Trimmer
- Burlap Ribbon
- Wreath Form
- die cut letters
Step 1: Cut your patterned paper to be 1″ x 6″ . It works best to use double sided patterned paper. I would suggest cutting 8 sheets of paper to have enough strips for the wreath.
Step 2. Staple the loops together.
Step 3: Hot glue the loops around the wreath form. Alternate your pattern papers. You will want the loops to fill 3 quarters of the wreath.
Step 4: Wrap the burlap ribbon around the remainder of the wreath form, using hot glue to secure.
Step 5: Wrap ribbon around the wreath and knot at the top to be able to hang it
Step 6: Die cut the letters to spell out m-e-r-r-y.
Step 8: Heat/melt the embossing powder.
Step 9: Adhere the letters with hot glue
This wreath makes a fun project and gift for a friend. Heat embossing with ColorBox® Gold Sparkle Embossing Powder really adds some nice shimmer to the project!
