Wood Round Wreath
Welcome to Christmas in July at The Apple Street Cottage. It's always nice to get a head start on projects before the holiday rush begins. Are you ready for the first project?
Let's get started!
Wood round signs are everywhere and I decided to make one when I found these at a yard sale:
They are 15" wide and were 3 for a dollar. Of course I took the picture after I got started - you know me! lol
They are made of plywood, which made me happy since they were not too heavy - better for hanging. To begin, I painted one with black spray paint and taped off half of it.
Some spray adhesive was used to attach a piece of burlap.
The edges were trimmed and folded over the back. Tacky glue was used to hold down those edges.
A piece of decorative burlap ribbon was added with a piece of satin ribbon on each edge to give it a more finished look.
I made a bow.
After fussing with it, the bow was glued on with tacky glue. I used a small clamp to hold it in place while the glue dried.
Design Space had 'Noel' in a beautiful font so I cut it on vinyl.
I applied it to the wood with transfer tape. (I use clear contact paper from the Dollar Store)
That was it. My project was done except for a way to hang it. I used thumbtacks to hold some string for hanging. Since the wood is thin, a staple may have gone all the way through. Thumbtacks were the perfect solution!
Before you go, let me clarify a couple of things. I realize it's July and Christmas ribbon may not be out in stores yet, although, you may only have to wait a week or two. Ha! That being said, this is a project that you can get started on now as long as you have a wood round, spray paint, and burlap. The ribbon can be added later. I just happened to have extra from last year.
I also realize that not everyone has a Cricut cutting machine. The text can easily be added with stencils or vinyl stickers.
So, are you ready to make a wood round wreath?
Be sure to stop back next week for my next Christmas in July project!
