Hey Decocrated family! Boy, do I have a fun post to share with you today! I’m going to walk you through, step by step, how I made my stunning Wooden Snowflake from the Winter 2022 Box into a wreath. I love the snowflake as-is so don’t worry, this hack doesn’t require any permanent changes to it. Everything can easily be undone later. However, with a few little tips and tricks, we are going to transform it into a completely different decor piece! Exciting I know!
Here’s what you’ll need for this fun transformation…
- Wooden Snowflake
- Garland of your choosing (I used the Fall 2022 Box garland). You’ll need at least 40 inches of garland in order to make it all the way around the snowflake sign. My garland wraps twice for extra fullness!
- Clear mini command CLIPS (I ordered mine from Amazon, linked here: https://amzn.to/3xo1EC7). You’ll need about 4 at a minimum.
- Clear plastic hair tie - I used this to tie the ends of my garland together!
- Optional: Holiday sprigs of choice. I decided to add a touch of holiday to my wreath by adding sprigs to my garland, you can pick these up at your local craft store!
Step 1: add your command clips
Once you have all your items assembled you can start applying the command clips to the outer edge of the snowflake. They’re clear so your wreath should hide any that might be visible during this stage. Press and hold each clip firmly for 30 seconds to ensure they stay attached to your sign when adding the garland!
NOTE: I left the brown string attached to the sign, I just tucked it behind the garland. That way I could use it to hang later if I wanted to!
Step 2: insert garland into command clips
Wrap the garland around the winter sign. Insert individual strands of your garland into the clear clips to secure it around your sign. The length of my garland let me wrap it around the sign twice. Once you get to the end, use your clear hair tie to tie the ends of the garland together. Secure that with another command clip if needed!
Step 3: grab your sprigs and insert them
My sprigs were fairly large so I decided to cut them down into smaller pieces.
Once you have the size you want, nestle them into the wreath branches until they are secure. Make sure you spread them out to the color is dispersed evenly.
Step 4: hang your wreath
Now you get to hang up your masterpiece! What I love about this hack is that depending on the materials you choose, everyone’s wreath will look different! There are endless possibilities!
