Before you even say it, I know it isn’t even Halloween yet 😉 Don’t worry, I haven’t lost my mind and decorated for Christmas…promise! I have, however, started planning, and want to share this simple DIY. Like it or not, it’s creeping up fast, and the closer it gets, the less time we will seem to have for projects such as this.
As you already know, I love to style tablescapes. This year I am upping my game and adding these mini Christmas wreaths to my chairs. They were so much fun to make and super easy! I made 4 wreaths, so supplies needed will depend on how many you plan to make.
- Mini wreaths – I used grapevine
- Greens – fresh or faux – I used faux
- Faux berries or beads
- Hot Glue Gun
- Thin piece of craft wood
- Americana Chalkboard Paint
- Americana Chalkboard Coating
- Chalk – I used a pen
First, I cut the thin piece of craft wood into 4 equal sizes.
*Always protect your work surface with newspaper or an old sheet.
I painted 1 coat of Americana chalkboard paint. After it quickly dried, I painted 1 coat of Americana chalkboard coating. I recently became familiar with DecoArt, and love their products.
Season your chalkboards by lightly rubbing chalk over the entire surface. Erase with a damp cloth.
I began constructing the mini wreaths next. First, I planned how I wanted them to look by just placing items without gluing, in order to know how much of a particular item I would need and where to place it.
Once I knew how I wanted it to look, I began hot gluing the items to the wreath.
I measured my ribbon and laid it around the top of the wreath so I knew where it wouldn’t interfere with the garnish.
I added some sugared berries as a final touch.
I folded the ribbon at the base and hot-glued it to secure.
Next, I wrote Peace, Joy, Love, and Family on the mini chalkboards.
Flip the wreath upside down gently on your surface and simply center the chalkboard on back and hot glue 4 corners. I did this the hard way. Adhering the chalkboard with script already written before applying the items to the front of the wreath would have been smarter 😉
How cute, right!
I used velcro to secure the mini wreaths to my chairs. I placed a piece on the front of my chair, and a piece at the top of my ribbon. I adhered the two pieces and gently draped the mini wreath over the back of my chairs.
They just add a little more ambiance to an already, glamorous Christmas table. I hope you found this rewarding <3 I will share my full Christmas tablescape in a later post.
