Faux Fur Winter Wreath

4 Materials
After putting away all of my holiday decor, my front door was looking pretty dreary. I wanted something wintry, but wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to make. I purchased some faux fur in December planning on using it for a Christmas project, but that didn’t happen. Rather than packing it away, I kept it out thinking I might find a different project for it. Once I decided to make a winter wreath, I knew the fur would be perfect for it.
I started by cutting the fabric into strips about four inches wide each.
I already had a wire wreath form on hand which is a good size for this wreath.
I began by just tucking one strip of the faux fur between the wire of the wreath. I wrapped it snugly around the wreath form, overlapping it as I worked my way around the form.
I continued wrapping it around the wreath form until it was fully covered. I used just a little hot glue to keep the last strip in place. Once it was fully wrapped, I added a small piece of ribbon to use as a hanger
Using some pretty wired ribbon in blue and silver, I tied off a bow around the small piece of ribbon.
To add more interest to the wreath I used stretch cord and some blue beads. I made three strands of beads. To keep them in place, I tied a knot on each end of the cord. I also placed a dot of hot glue over the knot.
I slipped the cords underneath the small blue ribbon that is used for hanging the wreath. I looped the cords through and tied them off.
I love blue and silver ribbon for a winter look. I cut three strips of ribbon and placed them around the wreath. I decided to use pins to secure them rather than glue. It will be easy to change up the look of the wreath this way,
I love how the white and blue look against my black front door. It’s a great combination of colors that looks perfect for winter.
