How to make a new door Christmas wreath with sequins and beads

  • - The day before.
    Cut a strip of modelling fabric whose lenght must be twice the wreath one.
    Dip this strip in a bowl full of cold water for 1-2 seconds and then apply it along the wreath without squeezing it. Try to make a lot of waves.
    Then press the modelling fabric on some points along the border to fix it on the base.
    Put aside in a cool place and let it dry very well for at least 24 hours.
  • - The day after.
    Paint the wreath with the acrylic colour. You have to make this step two times.
    Let all dry very well.
  • - Then arrange the little self-adhesive decorations along the front of the wreath.
    You can apply them with a spatula or a flat brush.
  • - Distribute the 3D glue, drop by drop, in the empty spaces among the liquid beads and glue the paillettes (sequins).
    The more you fill your wreath, the better your work will be.
  • - Let your wreath dry very well and then tie the ribbon.
    Your wreath is ready!
    You can hang it on a wall, a fireplace or your main door.
