Christmas Wreath Made From Wood Biscuits Found in the Tool Department

The inspiration for this wreath was found in the tool department at Home Depot while shopping with my husband.

I saw several containers of wood biscuits used for miter joints and thought of how similar they look to leaves. I was able to find a flat wood wreath form at Michaels.

It was very easy to attach the wood biscuits using a glue gun.

This wreath would look very good painted all green or any other color as the base color, but I wanted to see what it would look like with stain and gold accents. However, after two coats of stain and randomly painting some of the leaves with gold metallic paint, I just wasn't convinced it was the right look.

In the end, I added some green and white paint as accent colors to the stained and gold leaves. My husband suggested the bright red bow as the final touch.

    I really like the unfinished and stained wreaths simply because they can be used all year. Just a smashing good idea! Gold Star for Andrea!
