Harvest Wreath Video Tutorial

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Step 1:

    Wrap the stick or vine into a wreath (or use a store-bought wreath)

  • Step 2:

    Deconstruct the cardboard egg carton, so that you have individual cells

  • Step 3:

    Trim the edges of each cell to clean it up

  • Step 4:

    Cut the edges of the cells, to transform them into flowers. Use pointy cuts to create sharp petals and/or rounded cuts to create softer petal shapes. Consider cutting flowers to layer inside one another, to create depth. Turn some of the scraps into leaf shapes.

  • Step 5:

    Paint the flowers and leaves on both sides. Let dry

  • Step 6:

    After the first layer has dried, add details to the flowers with more paint. Let dry.

  • Step 7:

    Use hot glue to attach the flowers to the wreath form.

  • Step 8:

    Twist the wire onto the top of the wreath to create a hanger.
