Hey there! It’s Kira and I am back with a fun, festive Christmas project to get your house ready for the season! Today we will be making a fun wood bead wreath. Let's gather our supplies and get started!
- Cardstock Warehouse Cardstock Papers
- Wild Cherry Pop-Tone 100lb
- Forest Green Colorplan 100lb
- Paper Bag Kraft 100lb
- Wood beads
- Embroidery hoop
- Hot glue gun
- Tombow Mono Glue
- Electronic die-cutting machine
This is technically a Christmas project, but this could be easily modified for ANY season by simply changing the colors and embellishments. Let’s get started! First, grab your supplies. I found the wood beads on Amazon in a variety of sizes, but for this project, I used the largest size I had. For the hoop, I used a 6” embroidery hoop, but any type of hoop that can be glued on will work.
Start by hot gluing your beads directly onto your hoop.
Since this is a Christmas wreath, I decided to decorate my hoop with poinsettias. I used an older cut file from Citrus Twist for my poinsettias, but there are a ton of options on Cricut Design Space/Silhouette Store for similar options. Just search your machine's software for "poinsettia." I cut out the petals from Wild Cherry, the leaves from Forest, and the flower centers from Kraft Paper Bag.
Assemble your flowers with your Tombow adhesive.
Then, you’ll want to place your flowers on your wreath. I attached the first flower with hot glue slightly off-center. The other two flowers were trimmed down so they could be easily tucked behind the first flower. I cut apart the leaves so I had more control over where I would place them.
I attached some ribbon to the top of the wreath so I could hang it up.
And done! This was such a fun, easy project that I can’t wait to make more of these for other holidays! These would also be great ornaments in a smaller size. I hope you are inspired to make your own!
I can't wait to hang this in my home!
