Christmas Wreath

I finished this star wreath last night,

I love how it turned out!

Here's a quick tutorial.


1. Grab Kasiercraft BTP star wreath(no photo of packaging sorry)
separate pieces & sand to remove any rough edges. 
2. Gather your favourite supplies/tools
(paint, mod podge, paper,embellishments, 
ribbon & ink etc)
3. Paint backs & edges of the stars(I used Kaisercolor olive green) apply a second coat for a
deeper colour & allow to dry
4. Carefully cut paper (I used kaisercraft belle) 
& glue to stars
5. Sand/neaten edges of stars
6. Ink edges of stars to create depth.
7. Allow to dry completely
8. Arrange stars on wreath backing & glue once
your happy with their layout.
9 Add Some wooden flourishes (I used peace, hope & holly). Tie ribbon & glue them randomly in between the starsEmbellish as desired (I used kaisercraft pearls chino)
