Silver Twig Christmas Wreath

Due to my crazy house that sports two front doors, I needed two different wreaths for Christmas this year.
I wanted the wreaths to be complimentary, but not matchy-matchy. I don’t do ‘matchy-matchy’.
(Go here to see my other wreath: Whimsical Christmas Wreath)

I made my one-of-a-kind ‘Silver Twig Wreath’ in less than an hour. And that’s even with the time it took me to smash my thumb and say a PG word when trying to hang it up on my second front door.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your very own Silver Twig Wreath:
Metallic Silver Spray Paint
1’ to 2’ sections of Tree Limbs
Needle Nosed Pliers
Wire Snips
20 Gauge Galvanized Wire
Plastic or Paper drop cloth

For fun decor on the wreath: scavenge the house for sequins, tiny little birds, metallic circles, feathers, old ornaments, etc. I used a hot glue gun to apply the fun decor. (Hot glue gun not pictured due to my brain fart).

I cut my twigs into 1’ to 2’ sections, using my wire snips. I know this isn’t what wire snips are for, but…I am naughty that way. Using 3” sections of the galvanized wire, I joined my twiggy sections to one another.

Wrap the galvanized wire around the joined limbs, tucking the pointy ends underneath.

I continued this pattern until I had a nice wreath shape. I wasn’t worried about it being perfectly circular, and neither should you when you are making this. Perfection is highly overrated when it comes to crafting…

I sprayed my imperfect circular wreath with my spray paint of chose, as of late-Metallic Silver. It makes everything look very ‘ooh and ahh’…

Once the wreath was dry, I added birds and metallic circles here and there at my leisure. I even used the decor to cover over the wire. Pretty sneaky, eh?

In order to hang the wreath from the door, I simply tied a black ribbon onto what I deemed as the ‘top’ of it. I also added a vintage jingle bell to the center of the wreath-alerting me of intruders-or visitors…whatever you want to call them. You say ‘potato’, I say ‘puh-tah-toe’…

Simple, different, pretty and sparkly. The ‘Silver Twig Wreath’ is a fanciful addition to the second front door. And I like fanciful things very much, let me tell you.
