Christmas Wreath with Clear Scraps!

Hi, Connie here with a Christmas wreath using some of the festive embellishments by Clear Scraps.  I used chipboard trees, a mini star pallet shape and a large birch wood script word to create this Christmas wreath.

I started by adhering pine cones to the front of the wreath.  I had collected the pine cones a couple of years ago while on vacation.   If you have some pine cones and fear they are buggy, just put them in the oven at a low heat for about 30 minutes.

After the pine cones were attached to the front of the wreath, the script word, trees and star were painted with acrylic paints.   The script word and star were sanded down to create a distressed look.  The embellishments were speckled with watered down white paint.

The elements were adhered to the wreath with hot glue.  It really took no time at all to put the wreath together once the embellishments were decorated and painted. Goes pretty fast!!!
