Holiday Craft: JOY Wreath

Happy Tuesday to you all!  As I was decorating for Christmas I needed something to add to the chalkboard to complete my mantel (more like shelf above my couch, but I’ll take it).  I knew exactly what to make….a wreath of course!  You may have seen my JOY wreath before.  I made some to sell at the Bella Boutique that Alisa and I participated in in November.  You can see that post here.

The great thing about this wreath is that it is fast and easy and can add a lot to your Christmas decorations.  Here’s what you’ll need:

JOY Wreath materials

– Foam wreath

-Burlap ribbon

-glue gun

-lace

-doily

-JOY sign (I got mine at Micheal’s. There were other words as well)

Directions:

Step 1: Wrap the burlap ribbon around the foam wreath.  I fold my ribbon in half as I wrap it around so the foam does not show through.  Hot glue the ribbon to the wreath at the beginning and the end.

Step 2: Wrap the lace around the wreath as you want it and hot glue it.  Do the same with the doily and the JOY sign.  After I hung my wreath I added some crepe paper that I ruffled with my sewing machine.

That’s it!  So easy, right?!
