Tamera Mowry-Housley Winter Wreath - Home & Family

MATERIALS:

  • Macrame hoop
  • Oil rubbed bronze spray paint
  • Faux greenery like
    • Eucalyptus
    • Evergreen
    • Lamb’s ear
    • White or cream flowers
  • Pinecones
  • Floral tape
  • Floral wire
  • Wire snips
  • Scissors
  • Wide ribbon
  • Narrow ribbon
  • Fabri-tac
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Spray paint the macrame hoop, set aside to dry. Spray paint the other side later when the first is dry.
  2. Cut sprigs of the faux greenery to size to create four bouquets, two matching sets, make one set smaller than the other.
  3. Layer the sprigs to create the larger two identical sets of bouquets with greenery like lamb’s ear and evergreen.
  4. Wrap the stems of each bouquet with floral tape to secure together.
  5. Layer the sprigs of eucalyptus and small sprigs of evergreen to create two identical sets of bouquets that are smaller than the first two sets. Clip as needed with wire snips to make the sprigs the right size.
  6. Wrap the stems of each bouquet with floral tape to secure together.
  7. Arrange the bouquets on the wreath. Place the two larger bouquets fanning outward from what you’d like the focal point of the wreath with some space in between. Then place the smaller bouquets fanning outward, on top of the first two, but closer to the center focal point.
  8. Attach the bouquets to the hoop with floral wire. Leave the floral wire attached to the spool as you tightly wrap the end of the wire around the macrame hoop under one end of the greenery. Loosely wrap the wire through and around both the greenery and hoop until you reach the opposite end. Finish by tightly wrapping around the macrame hoop on the other side underneath the greenery.
  9. Create the focal point arrangement. Hot glue flowers and pinecones in place.
  10. If you’d like to create the layered ribbon bow, glue a length of the narrow ribbon on top of the wide ribbon with fabric glue. Allow to dry for a few minutes before the next step.
  11. Fold the ribbon into a loop then pinch in the middle to size the bow. Cut to size then glue the ends of the ribbon together.
  12. Cinch the center of the bow and attach it to the wreath. Tie a knot around the loop and the macrame hoop using the excess ribbon. Position and secure in place with hot glue.
  13. Cut the bow tails to length.
  14. Hang as desired and enjoy!
