Hello Friends! Are you ready to make some adorable Mini wreath ornaments? These cute ornament are great to double as a gift tag! This post will tell you everything you need to know to make these for your tree and your gifts.
The things you need for this project are:
Or (if you have a laser cutter)
1. First, you will gather your supplies. (If you have a Laser cutter, cut out the design).
Tips for cutting on the Glowforge:
2. Start out by Taking your mini wreath and pick a side you would like the greenery to be located on. I like picking a side with a strong vine. Then place one of the greenery pieces under the vine.
3. Grab another piece of greenery and place it next to the first one you added in.
4. Take 2 more pieces of greenery and do the same facing them opposite way. (I do these under a vine as well.) Next , grab the piece of floral wire (about 5" long) and place it under the vine wreath where the ends of the greenery meet up.
5. Grab the last 4 pieces of greenery and place 2 facing the top the the wreath and 2 facing the bottom. These will slightly overlap in the middle over the floral wire.
6. Take the floral wire and twist it around the wreath and the florals. You will want to make sure this is as snug as you can make it.
7. Next, you will decide what color you would like to paint the wooden ribbon. (Red and White are included in the kit). You could also choose to leave it natural or stain it!
8. You will then want to glue the smaller pieces of the ribbon on the back of the large wooden rectangle. Making sure they are as close to the edge as possible so the ribbon will fit on the wreath.
Next, take the wreath and place hot glue on the greenery where it overlaps each other. You will also want to add Hot Glue to the center of the opposite side (middle of the bare vine wreath). Place the ribbon in place and let cool a bit before flipping it over (don't ask me why I tell you this, lol).
9. Flip the wreath over and add a bit more hot glue to where the wreath and ribbon meet. This will help secure it in place a bit more. At this time also hook on the swirl hook.
Tips: You can choose to place a bit of hot glue where the hook and the wreath meet as well to secure it in place.
You made it, now show that ornament proudly on your Christmas presents or tree!
