Did you happen to catch the reveal of my winter fireplace for this year?  If not, you can take a look at it HERE.

There are lots of things that I love about my winter fireplace this year, but one of my most favorite elements is the wreath.  Of course, I’m kind of in love with those snowflakes too!

These two projects are so super easy – I know that you can do it!  First, I want to show you how you can make this super easy wreath.  It only took me about ten minutes – from start to finish!

WREATH SUPPLIES USED:

STEP 1:  Cut a two yard piece of batting in half (lengthwise).  Attach one end of the batting to the wreath form using several greening pins.

STEP 2: Wrap the first strip of batting tightly around the wreath form.  When you reach the end of the first strip of batting, lay the beginning of the second strip over it and attach with more greening pins.  Continue wrapping tightly and attach the end with greening pins.  If you have sections where your batting bunches up or won’t lay flat, insert a greening pin to hold it in place.  Two yards will likely be more batting than you need, so cut away any excess and save it for a future project or discard.

Here’s the backside of the wreath, completely wrapped with batting.  See the pins?

STEP 3:  Cut the two yard length of flannel fabric in half (lengthwise).  Leaving an 8″ – 10″ tail (this will become the part that hangs below the wreath), wrap the first strip of fabric around the wreath using the same method as with the batting, making sure to cover the raw edges of the fabric as you wrap. You don’t need to actually attach the first strip of fabric to the wreath – all of the wrapping and your tie at the end will hold it in place.  If you have any areas that won’t lie flat or bulge where you don’t want it to, use a spot of hot glue to hold it down.

Attach the second strip of flannel fabric to the back of the wreath with hot glue, where the first strip ended.  Make sure to completely cover the end of the first strip.  Continue wrapping the fabric around the wreath until you meet the place where you started with the first strip of fabric.  You should have several inches of fabric leftover.  Tie the two lengths of fabric together with a single loop.

STEP 4:  Trim each end of the hanging down fabric at an angle.  I trimmed one side to be shorter than the other.  Attach the mini pompom trim to the ends using hot glue.

SNOWFLAKE SUPPLIES USED:

STEP 1:  Using the cutting pliers, cut each dowel to the length that equals the height that you want your snowflake stand to be.

STEP 2:  Apply a blob of hot glue to one end of a wood dowel, then slide a toy wheel over the dowel until it reaches the bottom.  Stand up and allow to the glue to dry.

STEP 3:  Apply the dowel to the back of a snowflake, using hot glue.  Here are my snowflake stands all glued together.  The yellow spot under two of them is a piece of tac putty that I used to help hold it upright, since these two snowflakes were a bit heavy.

STEP 4:  After the glue has dried on snowflake, paint the entire thing with white spray paint.  I painted right over the glitter that was on some of my snowflakes.

STEP 5:  If necessary, use a piece or two of tac putty underneath the snowflake to help it stand upright.
