Christmas for us has always been about glitter, lights and harmonising many different decorations. So when it comes to decorating our own home, we love choosing from colourful materials and accessories to create something original. While doing so we always bear in mind that Christmas is first and foremost about love so we do our best to send this message when making our decorations or setting our table.
Create a Breathtaking Silver Christmas Table Wreath in 8 Steps
This easy-to-make table decoration helps to create an intimate and glittering atmosphere and keeps the warmth of Christmas around even after the holiday is over. Just have a go at it!
1. What You’ll Need
You will need a straw-wreath, a grey knitted scarf, 4 silver candles, silver paint, a wooden plate with a Christmas greeting, a small wooden deer, 4 small (2cm) Christmas tree bulbs, a length of silver bead garland, white beads, silver glittering balls, acorns, casuarina, mini pine cones.
2. Things to Prepare for the Base
To create the base of the table piece you will need a straw-wreath, a grey scarf, a pair of scissors and a glue gun.
3. Glue the Knitted Material to your Wreath
Cut a length of the scarf to match the diameter of the outside of the straw-wreath and use pins and the glue gun to attach the knitted material to the wreath.
4. Attach the Candles
You will need some wire, pliers and a lighter to attach the candles.
5. Use the Wire Pieces
Cut four equal pieces off the wire, use the lighter to heat one end of each, then with the help of the pliers stick the hot end of the wire into the candles and the other end into the wreath.
6. Gather the Materials for the Decor
Now collect the nuts, the cones and any other pieces that you’d like to use to create the decoration. You can use practically anything you like as long as they are grey or white in color.
7. Start Painting
Paint the acorns silver to give the wreath an even more special look. Let them dry for about ten minutes before you glue them to the wreath.
8. Add the Materials you Want to Use
As a last step, attach the nuts, the cones and the other pieces to the wreath. Start it at the base of one of the candles so that you can arrange them neatly. Once all the nuts are in place, you can place the wooden plate and the deer on the wreath.
