I am so excited to be here at The Crafting Chicks. My name is Lindi Haws and I blog over at Love The Day. Now I took a very literal approach to my 12 Days of Christmas craft/gift. I was assigned the day of “four calling birds” and decided to make a Christmas bird-themed wreath (although I only used two, rather than four…that seemed a bit much). I went with a white and gold color scheme and made the wreath from supplies I purchased at Michaels. I love how this Calling Birds Holiday Wreath turned out!
Here is how I created the wreath:
FloraCraft Foam Wreath (I love these because you can pin in your decor rather than hot glue, allowing you to make alterations or a new wreath if desired).
Thick Gold Ribbon
White Glittered Pine Tree Branches
Gold Sprigs of different texture and size
Gold Christmas Balls
Glittered Pine Cones
Take your gold ribbon and wrap around the foam wreath. Using your pins, pin the white pine branches in alternating directions on the bottom half of the wreath. Next pin your largest gold sprigs and then pin your next sized sprig on-top of those. Pin your two birds near the bottom, center and then pin gold balls, pine cones and remaining sprigs as filler.
