Welcome to the first Craft Room DeStash Challenge of 2019!!! I am excited to see what everyone has decided to work on this month. As for me, I decided to do a winter wreath makeover for the white wreath that I have used for the last two winters.
The original post for this wreath can be found at A Winter Themed Wreath.
Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C’mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! Everyone is allowed a $10 allowance for necessities to complete their project (i.e. paint brushes, glue, etc), but the bulk of it must be created from their own stash of goodies.
Let’s meet this month’s bloggers!!
I have to admit, this wreath was looking a bit sad and worn when I pulled it out of the bag. I really like the blue and gold sparkly ribbon I used on this wreath and just wanted to try to use it for one more year.
Just one more winter season.
Before throwing something out, try to see if it is worth giving a makeover first.
The first thing I did was to remove all of the tiny yarn hats on the wreath. Then I fluffed up the bow and the wreath a bit to see if the wreath was even worth using for another year. It’s a bit faded and and some of the stems are slightly yellow but for the most part the wreath is okay. This will definitely be it’s last year hanging at the door though.
From my craft stash, I pulled out three wood slices left over from my Rustic and Modern Christmas Tree project back in December. These have already been heat treated, sanded down, and cleaned up so it was an easy choice to use them.
I hand lettered in pencil the words “Let It Snow” on the three slices and painted in the design with black acrylic paint.
I attached the wood slices to the wreath with hot glue.
Another thing I pulled out of my craft stash were these glittery blue floral picks. I had used a these picks few years ago on my Retro White Christmas Tree. The blue matches the blue in the ribbon and just give some whimsy to the entire wreath.
By finding a way to reuse my winter wreath for one more season I not only saved money but also used up some of my craft room supplies.
