UPDATE: This giveaway is closed. Congrats to Beth Kilgore who was randomly selected to receive the 12″ Gilded Wreath!
Joy to the World, it’s day 6 of our 12 Days of Christmas DIY and Giveaways! I’m excited to share this one with you. While the tutorial on it isn’t long, settle in with a good movie, or two and a cup of hot cocoa because this one while not difficult will take a decent chunk of time. The sparkly bright pay off however is totally worth it!
Remember to enter to win this Gilded goodie…
Step 1: Gather your supplies
- 12″ wreath form (though it can be brittle, I suggest a foam form)
- duct tape
- flat headed thumb tacks (You can get a box of 300 for $1 at the Dollar Tree and I burned through 4 whole boxes and into the 5th)
Step 4: When you reach a point where the final thumb tack of the row will over lap your first, raise the first thumb tack up slightly, and push the last thumb tack underneath the first so that you maintain a consistent look of your thumbtacks overlapping each other. (sorry for the blurry photo) Step 5: You can now begin your second row of thumb tacks. Start the next row above the first and offsetting the thumbtacks so that their spacing is staggered in between the thumbtacks of the row below.
As you continue, it will look something like this…
Repeat this process moving your way upward and outward along the wreath form until it is completely covered in thumbtacks adjusting as you go around since the surface area that you’ll be covering will get bigger as you work your way toward the outside of the wreath form.
