Wreaths are a wonderful way to decorate the front door of your home. Just because we’re Jewish doesn’t mean our door should be bare this holiday season! To the contrary; there are so many different designs, sizes, colours and materials that you can use to make your wreath magical during Hanukkah. I like to keep my wreath within the silver, white and blue palette and use glittery foliage to enhance the wintery feel. Here’s how I made this one:
What you’ll need:
20 inch diameter wire wreath or a thick wire clothes hanger shaped into a circle.
Wired silver foliage
1/2 meter blue ribbon
Hot glue gun
Spray can of fake snow.
Step 1: Begin by arranging your wired silver foliage on top of your wire wreath or clothes hanger. Start from the centre at the top of the circle and lay a bunch of foliage flat at a 45 degree angle away from the centre. Wrap the spare wire at the bottom of the foliage tightly around the wreath circle. For extra security, use your hot glue gun to adhere both wires together.
Step 2: Continue with the next bunch of wired foliage moving clockwise around your wreath at the same angle.
Step 3: Once you have decorated your whole wreath, it’s time to spray it with the fake snow. Make it snowy!
Finally, add a bow at the top with your ribbon. Wrap the ribbon underneath the top centre of the wreath and tie a knot. Create a bow at the top and dress over your wired foliage.
Step 4: Hang your wreath on your front door for everyone to see.
