Recently while perusing the aisles of Michaels checking out their holiday eye candy I spotted the burlap ribbon. The light bulbs went off and From A Card Holder To Rustic Wreath was born!
I used my Modern Masters Metal Effects Kit to give it a faux copper look. The rings were painted with Copper Metal Effects Primer, the tree base with Copper Reactive Metallic Paint and I took it a step further by oxidizing the tree with Green Patina Aging Solution.
Next I simply weaved the entire roll of burlap ribbon loosely in and out of the card slots, wrapping it about three times around and leaving strands on both ends.
During that trip to Michaels I also purchased six wooden ornaments for another holiday project. But after finishing the wreath I decided it needed some embellishing and so I changed up the plan for the ornaments. But first I gave them the same oxidized treatment as the tree.
I had some brass bells leftover from another project and painted them with Copper Metal Effects Primer. Next I strung them with two star ornaments and jute twine on the base at different lengths.
And there you have it, an easy peasy unique wreath for someone who prefers a more rustic holiday theme!
You may recall several months ago I did a review of the Modern Masters Metal Effects Kit with my Turning Tin and Wood into Faux Oxidized Copper project. I had so much fun I did a couple more projects using this technique Faux Oxidized Copper Topped Table and Tin Pumpkin Art.
