'Tis the season to beautify our homes with great ideas from Martha Stewart! I am so excited to be a part of this year's Christmas Workshop, a six-week online workshop that helps you get ready for the holidays. You can create Christmas crafts, cards, cookies, and much more.
I decided to tackle a project from the second week of the workshop. It's an urn topper you can place atop an urn or on your table as a centerpiece.
First, I purchased a selection of Christmas ornaments, wire, craft glue, and a wreath.
I decided to use a string of battery-powered holiday lights (20 on the string) since I could place the decoration in any area of my home and not worry about a power source.
After securing some of the ornaments to the wreath using the wire, I glued the ornaments to each other, slowly building the height of the decoration. The Christmas Workshop also suggests using floral wire to secure the ornaments to the wreath. I decided to glue them since I plan to use this decoration every holiday season.
Make sure you check the ornaments so they're adhering properly. Also, place a towel on your workspace to avoid any glue sticking to the table.
The next step involved winding the string of lights through the wreath -- make sure the lights are hidden among the greenery.
Here is the finished project in full light and with the lights dimmed!
Again, you can place it atop a table, an urn, or large vase to bring the beauty of the holidays indoors!
Check back with this blog next week -- I'll have a new creation to show you from the Christmas Workshop! What's your favorite project in the workshop?
