How To: Make your own wreath from scratch

Make your own wreath from scratch

In this video, Meg will show you how to make your own wreaths. You'll be creating two scenes on your wreaths : a woodland and an aromatic one. You'll need 2 cardboard rings (one slightly smaller) cut in wreath forms, green moss, a hot glue gun, a knife, some pretty fabric, and a handful of old corks.

For the first wreath, take the larger cardboard piece and lay your green moss on it. After laying it out where you want it, use your hot glue gun to glue it to the cardboard. Make sure each piece is securely in place. Now, cut corks in half lengthwise to get your mushroom's stem shape, and then cut a 2nd cork widthwise to get the top of the mushroom. Cut the edges of the top in a dome like shape. Then using pins, attach one needle through the head and stem of the mushroom. Then use another to push through the bottom of the stem, halfway, so you have something to attach the mushroom onto the wreath. Paint your mushroom heads red with white polka dots. Attach by putting hot glue on the needle and sliding it into to the green moss. Now, go hang it up.

Grab your smaller cardboard piece, and a long piece of pretty fabric that's 3 inches thick. Tack down one end with glue, and wrap the fabric around the cardboard. When you get to the end, glue it in place and tie a not at the end to hang it. Break long cinnamon sticks down to 3-4in pieces, and glue them to the wreath until you can't see the fabric. Hang up, and now you have nice-smelling wreath to hang in your home.
