Christmas Wreath with Re- Purposed Vintage Jewelry
Don’t throw away broken or unwearable pieces of vintage jewelry. Use them to make interesting DIY projects like this pretty Christmas wreath.
Hot glue gun
Wreath Form (from craft stores like Michael’s or use a swim noodle from a dollar store as a thrifty second choice.
old enamel flower pins
single beaded earring
three strands of pearl garland
Piece of velvet ribbon
Put a dab of glue on the end of the garland to secure it, and begin winding it around the wreath form. Put an occasional dab of hot glue here and there to keep the garland in place as you wrapped it around, and a big glob to secure the end.
Once the wreath is covered with the garland, group your enamel pins in a cluster and stick the pin backs right into the foam to secure them.
Form a bow and put a single beaded earring in the center for a nice accent. That’s all there is to it and you have a professional looking Christmas wreath re-purposed from pieces of vintage jewelry and a few inexpensive craft items.
