12 Days of Christmas Inspirations, Day 7: A Christmas Wreath

FC Wreath (2)

Hi everyone, Miae here with a fun Christmas décor idea for the upcoming holidays! Wreaths are popular and they’re a great way to add a festive feel to any room, doorway or mantle. I decided to make a wreath out of mini bulb ornaments and my Faber Castell Design Memory Craft® Gelatos®.

Start by covering the bulbs with tissue paper. I first stamped all over the tissue paper then tore out strips. I used Mod Podge to paste the tissue on.

Next color your ornaments with the Gelatos®.  I colored the ornaments directly with the Gelatos®  then took a wet paintbrush to them.

I went with slightly non traditional colors and decided to attempt an ombre effect. The whole Mix & Match concept works very well here, I just grabbed my blue Gelato® and worked from with light blue, metallic blue and dark blue.

I repeated the process with some even smaller ornaments and colored them with the metallic Silver Gelatos®.

Now pull out your glue gun and wreath backing and glue the ornaments on. I glued my ornaments from lighter to darker blue.

Emboss your sentiment on the tag and color the edges with the Gelatos™. Use your finger to blend.

Tie a tulle bow and add your tag and you’re all done! Enjoy!

MiaeMiae Rowe Sometime ago I discovered this thing called scrapbooking and it's fair to say I'm an addict! I love color, I love texture, I love putting all that together! Life with my Aussie husband and our 2 daughters is full of plenty of adventures for me to photograph and get creative with...fodder for the fuel!
