Frozen Mesh Wreath & Pumpkin

With all the “Frozen” hype going on for the past year, I had to make a wreath with that theme, or at the very least with that color scheme. I used a 24″ white pine wreath base (from Joann), one roll of 6″ Light-ish Blue mesh (from the 99 cent store!), a jumbo roll of 2″ Silver, wired ribbon (from Michael’s), blue and silver plastic ornaments of varying sizes (99 cent store and Joann), and various Christmas picks and stems (Michael’s).

I LOVE the ribbon I used. It has beautiful snowflakes that are just beautiful. I was also lucky enough to find Silver Christmas stems that have petals with the same sheer quality as the ribbon. Score!

I found that the pine wreath was a bit more difficult for me to use than the metal frame with the pipe cleaners. Perhaps it is because it can get a bit confusing on locating the right place to attach the mesh. I had to redo it once, using a different method, since it look awkward the first time around.

Anyway, I hope this sparks some creativity in you to make your own wreath! You won’t regret it.

I also wanted to show you an Elsa pumpkin I finished a day or two ago. I found a tutorial on Pinterest by blogger apumpkinandaprincess and I just had to try it myself.

You’ll need:

  1. A plastic white pumpkin (usually sold at Michaels a month or two before October)
  2. Krylon glitter blast, “Sparkling Waters” color
  3. Krylon glitter sealer to help keep the glitter stay put (optional)
  4. Adhesive rhinestones of your choice
  5. Adhesive bling on a roll
  6. Snowflakes stickers
  7. Small tiara

This is how mine turned out. I had a lot of fun using the glitter blast spray and I plan to do more with them in future projects. I followed apumpkinandaprincess’ design up until the rhinestones. I couldn’t find the ones she used so I found ones that worked just as well and also a pack of snowflakes in two shades of blue that was just too pretty to pass up. The only thing left is to find a tiara, which I have been unsuccessful in. Hopefully, I will find one soon before Christmas. The only issue I encountered was that the adhesive bling and rhinstones don’t have a very strong grip on the pumpkin; thus, they can potentially peel or fall off if you mess around with them too much.

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing some DIY Christmas/Frozen projects.

Thanks for reading!
