Dollar Store Grape or straw wreath (mine is grape vine)
Graphic of Santa printed out. (Source: The Graphics Fairy)
Pages from an old hymnal ( you can usually find these at church book sales)
Print out your Santa Graphic in the size you desire. I used a whole typing sheet.
Mount on cardboard ( use sides of cereal box)
Hot glue the wreath to the picture centering Santa.
Cut a hymnal page into quarters
Curl the page piece with your fingers making a cone and glue with glue stick.
Make as many of these cones as you want to fill the wreath. I used two rows of these.
Then hot glue them onto the wreath in layers. ( I went once around and then made another row on top of the first one.)
Just use a pipe cleaner wrapped around the top of the wreath for a hanger and finish with a bow placed at whatever point you would like it.
I have seen so many variations of this wreath and you could make it of any pocketbook pages but it is more meaningful at this time of year with the hymnal pages.
You could make these wreaths any time of year with whatever scene as the graphic in the middle to match the season or holiday. I think it would make a stunning gift and even in a smaller size.HAPPY HOLIDAY CRAFTING!! Come again soon for more ideas, sources and more!
