I got excited when I was asked to create this wreath for a work friend because I knew I'd get to do something fun. I love the traditional Christmas colors, but I wanted this wreath to be extra bright and cheery since it was going on a first grade teacher's door. :) The lime-ish green ribbon I used to wrap the wreath did just the trick-and the polka dots of course. When it comes to decorating classrooms, polka-dots are always my go-to move. Ha.
I was originally going to do a picture tutorial, but this wreath was so easy, I didn't take step by step pictures. You can do it.
Wide ribbon for the wreath(50% off at Michael's!)-mine was wired, but it doesn't need to be.
More wide ribbon for the bow.
Straw wreath form
Glue/mod podge, glitter
Berry sprigs (I used two different ones and trimmed them down to work for me)
Wrap your wreath with the wide ribbon, adding hot glue every now and then as you go.
Trim your sprigs some, mix and match, do whatever you like. Find a place where you think it looks right and hot glue it on. Hold it down for several seconds to insure it sticks since the sprigs will most likely be kinda heavy. Glue on some ornaments to fancy up the sprigs.
Paint large dots of glue dots on your initial. (Mine came white-from Michael's-, but you may need to paint yours if yours did not.) Sprinkle glitter over the glue dots and let dry. Once dry, tie a sweet little ribbon bow to your initial if you like! Glue the initial to the wreath over the bottom of the sprig. Make sure everything looks right and level.
Hot glue a fun ribbon on top and you're done! You can glue a knotted ribbon loop to the back of the wreath to use for hanging if you like.
Hope you love this simple, but bright and happy idea for a Christmas wreath!
