Faux Fur Winter Wreath
Welcome to day two of 25 Days of Christmas! To see day one, click here. And to follow along on the interactive advent calendar, click here.I can’t believe that December is here and we are already two days into our advent calendar. This is my most favorite time of the year! And, I’m so excited to be a part of this wonderful count down to Christmas.
I’m sharing my winter wreath today! It’s the perfect addition to Christmas decor that will transition nicely into winter. So here goes.
DIY Faux Fur Winter Wreath
Straw wreath (got mine at a yard sale for .50! yay)
Glue gun and glue sticks
Faux fur (about 1/4 yard)
So the directions here are really simple. Lay out your faux fur in strips about 8 inches wide.
Lay your wreath on top of the strip of fur with the fur facing down. Fold the fur around the wreath and glue to the wreath back side of the wreath. You’ll need to snip the fur every inch or so to make sure the fur lays flat on the wreath. Once you’ve glued the first piece onto the wreath cut another strip about eight inches wide to complete the next section. Be sure to get the seams lined up as best as you can. They don’t have to be perfect because once you fluff up the fur you won’t see the seam.
Once you completed all the sections (I did mine in three sections) fluff up the fur. That will hide the seams and give a nice fullness to the wreath. Lastly tie a ribbon to the top. I’m going with a silver and gold color scheme this year so I decided on a gold ribbon. Keep in mind that you can always change out the ribbon when you transition your wreath from Christmas/holiday to winter wreath.
All that’s left is to hang and admire your winter wreath! Mine is above my sweet little vignette that you’ll see more of tomorrow!
Don’t forget that is this a 25 day affair with some wonderfully talented ladies! You’ll have to check the advent calendar tomorrow to see day three!
