I just love the idea of these little wreaths hanging in each of my 100-year old windows. Looking through the wavy glass at the sparkling candle light just oozes of romance, doesn’t it? You can hang these indoors or outdoors, and here’s a little secret, those candles can be 100% battery operated if you wish. Benefit from modern living without skimping on the charm of old-day methods.
To make this little beauty, all you need are the following:
1 round wooden coin
1 round cut of leather or felt
1 round wooden stand
1 package of florist wire (in whatever color you prefer)
1 sheet of white felt, cut 2 using Window Wreath Template for Leaves
leather string (or any kind of string)
large bowl (the size of the circle you wish your wreath to be)
hot glue gun
Carefully unwrap wire. Have your bowl ready with a roll of tape.
Using the bowl as a guide for the wire, tape the wire around the lip of the bowl. Be careful to keep the wire from kinking.
Continue around the bowl until your wire meets the beginning point. Snip with wire cutters and secure with tape.
Working quickly, add more hot glue to the leather round (or felt, if you are using felt) and secure the wooden coin to the top.
Once secure, beginning at the bottom, attach one end of your felt leaves to the base using hot glue. Wrap the felt around the wire until you reach the end of the felt.
Adjust the felt wrap, and secure with hot glue.
