My crafting tends to ebb and flow. Sometimes I am a flurry of projects churning out one thing after another, while there are other times (particularly when I am feeling pressure or stress) I feel I don’t have a creative bone in my body. I am also a bit of a procrastinator. Needless to say, I am a bit manic about creating during the holidays. Right now, I am in the midst of a wreath making frenzy. I’ve got a wreath up on the front door, in the kitchen, the entryway closet…I even made a wreath for both my mom’s door and my boyfriend’s doors. I’m currently operating on a strict no door left behind policy.
I don’t think I will get around to showing you all of them, but today I wanted to share the fun winter wonderland fur wreath I made for the closet door in my entryway.
It coordinates perfectly with the neutral holiday decor I have going on AND it’s a bit different from other wreaths you find this time of year. I mean, a FUR wreath???
Winter Wonderland Fur Wreath
To recreate this project, you will need the following:
Foam Wreath Form + Faux Fur Trim (like this or eyelash yarn like this)
Small Christmas House or Chapel (maybe something like this)
Tiny Bottle Brush Trees
Electronic Cutting Machine (this is the one I use)
Hot Glue Gun + Glue
Start this project by wrapping a foam wreath form with faux fur. I use FloraCraft’s Styrofoam forms. They come in a variety of sizes and I can always find exactly what I am looking for. For this project, I used a 16″ wreath form.
Next, wrap the wreath with faux fur trim. I couldn’t find faux fur in the color I was looking for so I used a piece of faux fur fabric. I purchased one yard of faux fur, though I probably could have gotten away with half a yard had I draped it differently.
Once the fur is secure, add the small focal ornament. I used a tin chapel found in the ornament bins at Michaels, but a ceramic chapel (like this), small house or a barn would also look cute.
The chapel is surrounded by miniature white bottle brush trees. I used floral wire cutters to adjust the height of the trees before securing them to the wreath.
I secured the chapel and the bottle brush trees to the wreath with hot glue, pressed down into the styrofoam.
I cut a small banner out of glitter paper for the top of the wreath on my Silhouette machine. The only glitter paper I use is the POW brand, made by American Crafts. The glitter does not come loose so it’s PERFECT for crafting (especially if you’re scared of glitter). I also cut the word “wonderland” in vinyl using my Silhouette machine. I used the Siser brand from Expressions Vinyl. It adhered perfectly to the glitter paper.
I used a bit of hot glue to secure the ends of the banner to the wreath. Because it hung a little loosely, I also used some straight pins near the banner layers to ensure it remains secure.
I love how it turned out and it’s neutral enough I can leave it up through January if I want to!
