We love Mid-Century Modern Design so for our front door we wanted a wreath that keeps with our home decor aesthetics. For this Mid-Century Merry Makers Project we are going to create a festive and swanky Mid-Century Modern House Wreath. Get started with The Mid-Century Modern House Collection from The Retro Christmas Card Company and a few supplies. Here’s the list of supplies needed:
• Mid-Century Modern House Christmas ORNAMENTS Variety Pack
• Northlight 24″ White Canadian Pine Artificial Christmas Wreath – Unlit – from Amazon
• 4 Silver + Red Sisal Tree Picks from Hobby Lobby
• 6 Metallic Straw Picks Hobby Lobby
• Tiny Bottle Brush Trees Hobby Lobby
• Dollar Store Silver Ball Ornaments
The first step is to place the elements of your wreath on to the wreath itself in the position you like them. Just be sure to leave room for the bow. Some times I like the bow at the top, but sometimes I do an asymmetrical bow at the side. It’s up to you. Flatten out the areas you want the ornaments to fit onto. Once you have them arranged then heat up the glue gun.
Go piece by piece, glue the backs of the ornaments with a good 1 inch square of hot glue and position. Then add in the trees at the ends of the houses. Clip the ends off the sputnik straw picks so that they are about 2 inches long. Glue them into place, making a nice balance all around. Add in your sparkle balls ornaments with a generous application of glue at the tops and position for added glam.
Tie a big bow, add a double loop to make the effect more colorful and fluffy. Hang and enjoy!
