Can you believe it? The Holiday season has long since begun to take full form and we’re only two weeks deep into December! If you know either Julia or I, you’ll know that Julia’s already enormous obsession with Target pales in comparison to my indestructible love for Michaels. You’ll also know that I am a huge sucker for DIY projects and spend a lot of my free time knitting and crafting in general. What better way to bundle up for the Holiday season than to play with glitter and create DIY projects!
I am delighted to share with you all a project that I will be making as well this season! All materials can be bought at a Michaels store (I recommend purchasing at the store as not all materials are available online).
- Plastic Ornaments by ArtMinds™, 67mm Ball, 12 Pack
- Beadalon® Supplemax™ Monofilament Illusion Cord, Clear, 0.3mm
- White Cordage (as shown in picture)
- Ceiling Hook (must support at least 5 lbs.)
- Floral Wire Cutters
- Celebrate It™ Christmas Grapevine Wreath 18″ – White
- 3 – Ashland® Christmas Floral Stem – Berry/Pine/Snow
- Celebrate It™ Christmas Wire – Silver
- Divide the grapevine wreath into three even sections. Tie a long piece of cording around the wreath at those points. Take the long cording tails from the tied sections and pull them to the center, allowing the wreath to hang evenly. Adjust the cords if needed. Once the wreath is even, hold all cords together and tie a looped knot above the center for hanging. Lay wreath on a table with the cords facing down.
- Position all three stems around the top of the wreath and trim off the long end. Wire on the stems. Cut pieces of floral wire 4″ long and weave through the grapevine wreath and around the stems to secure allowing parts of the berries and pinecones to hang loose. Trim any extra wire and tuck into the wreath. Hang the wreath by the cording knot to complete the next step.
- Thread transparent cord through the wreath and stems and tie a square knot. Repeat this step around the wreath every 5″. Allow the cording to hang 12″-14″. Onto each cord thread a clear ornament. Vary the lengths of the cord so the ornaments hang at different heights when finished. Tie a square knot to the ornament hanger and trim the ends. Repeat on all the cords. Attach a ceiling hook to the ceiling and hang the chandelier from it.
- Optional: Brush the ornaments with Mod Podge and sprinkle them in glitter! You can also fill them with fake snow as well!
