Difficulty level: Moderate
Time to complete: 2+ hours, depending on amount of detail added
Things you’ll need:
Wire Wreath Form
Pretty in Pink Polymesh Ribbon
5/8″ Pink with White Polka Dot Satin Ribbon
1/8″ Acrylic Rhinestone Silver Trim
Unfinished Wood Princess Crown
Pink Nylon Artificial Butterflies
Silver Glitter Curly Picks
White Pearl Loop Sprays
Pink and White Mixed Flat Turkey Feathers
White Pipe Cleaners
Light Pink Acrylic Paint
Things to do:
1. Cut pipe cleaners into thirds with wire cutters or scissors. Bend each pipe cleaner in half, making a V”.
2.Using the pipe cleaners, attach end of polymesh ribbon to wire frame. The placement doesn’t really matter, as you will work your way around. Twist the pipe cleaners tight, leaving the ends- you will use them again.
3. For each loop, pull approximately 6″ of the mesh and secure to the wire frame. Continue making loops and attaching to the frame, moving back and forth and around to fill in the wreath. I did approximately 20 loops in each section of the wreath.
4. With polka dot ribbon, go back into the loose ends of the pipe cleaners and attach. Making loops in random directions, I went around the wreath 3 times. A princess can never have too much bling! Tuck in the ends of the pipe cleaners so they are not visible from the front of the wreath.
5. And now-the fun! Hot glue feathers, pearls, glitter curly picks, and butterflies into the wreath. You may want to determine the top and bottom of the wreath before adding the butterflies if you want them flying” toward the top of the wreath.
6. Paint one side of the wooden crown and let dry. Then paint the other side and the edges, and let that dry as well. I glued a strand of rhinestones across the lower edge, and individual rhinestones on the points of the crown. Personalize the crown, if desired, with paint or a Sharpie. When embellishments are dry, hot glue the crown to the wreath.
