I love to Decorate for every Holiday! But we all know, how hard it can be to store all of your Holiday Décor and Wreaths. I decided a while back that I wanted to make some sort of smaller decoration to add to the wreaths already in my home. I love this idea and hope you will to. Here is what I made for St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. It’s double sided so that makes it easier to store.
The Supplies I will be using are:
12 x 12-inch Wooden Circle (I purchased mine from Amazon)
Off White Paint (I used Apple Barrel Antique White)
Waverly Wax in Antique
Vinyl Sticker that says March 17
Easter Print Out (I got mine from a Dollar Tree Calendar)
Next you will paint both sides of the Wooden Circle with the off-white paint. I used Antique White from Apple Barrel.
After the paint is dry, I took my Waverly Wax in Antique and dry brushed it onto the Wooden Circle. I only did this on one side of the Circle. I always use a chippy brush to dry brush.
Wait until the Antique Wax is dry and then apply the Vinyl to this side. I cut out this Darling March 17 vinyl to use on the St. Patrick’s Day side of my sign. It is so simple and CUTE!!!
Now flip the board over. This is the side you will apply your Easter print out on. I used this Darling page out of the Dollar Tree “Simply Blessed Calendar.” I cut closely around the wreath so the print out is circular and will fit on the wood circle nicely. I used a glue stick to apply the print onto the board. I put the printout on the side of the circle that was not dry brushed.
Next you will need to cut 4 pieces of jute string 24 inches long. These will go through the holes I drilled into the Wooden Circle. To make the strings easy to thread through the holes I applied a small amount of hot glue to one end of the jute string and let it dry. Each string should be threaded through the holes. You will use the strings to attach the Wooden Circle to the Wreath.
Look how cute my wreath looks with the wreath insert attached. This is such a fun way to decorate your home for all Holidays. I hope you will try to make this.
