INDIVIDUAL WREATH PIN DECORATION
by Bluebonnet Crafters
(Click HERE to see an example.)
This decoration can be made as a wall hanging or centerpiece in the shape of a tree or wreath. It can be used as decoration and provide party favors guests can take home with them. Number of individual pins depend on number of guests expected but it is always good to have a few extra made for unexpected guests. As an option they can be used as napkin rings.
- 3" Grapevine Wreaths
- Pin Backs
- A Variety of Ribbon, Trims, Buttons, Charms, Fabric yo-yos, etc.
- Curling Ribbon
- Dual-temp glue gun and glue sticks
- Small Scissors
Using the grapevine wreath as a base embellish using collected items as you like. Each one can be decorated with a bow and a charm or 3 yo-yos and a decorative button, etc. They do look best with odd numbers and simpler is better than crowded. Apply the pin back to the center top back side of the decorated wreath with a glue gun. When you have finished the number of wreath pins you will need take 6" pieces of curling ribbon (can be all one color or several colors) and tie them together to form a large wreath or Christmas tree shape. This can then be hung or used as a centerpiece. Each guest can remove a wreath pin, to take home with them, with a small pair of scissors tied to the top of the arrangement. Tie scissors with a piece of curling ribbon that is long enough to reach the farthest point.
For the wreath wall hanging, make a circle of the individual pins with a ribbon bow tied between each wreath. Add the second row placing an individual wreath in each space between the ones in the first ring. Tie each to the individual ring next to it at 3:00 o'clock and 9:00 o'clock as well as the two at 7:00 o'clock and 5:00 o'clock below it.
For the tree wall hanging, begin at the top with one individual wreath, tie two wreaths below to form the second row, three wreaths in the third row and continue with as many as you need. You are tying with the curling ribbon and curling the ribbon so it can be clipped apart as the guest leaves.
Stand each individual wreath on edge and tie them in a ring, building one ring on top of the other, each successive ring with one less individual wreath in it so you build a cone.
