Introduction: Monster Wreaths
Just a fun project, that only takes an hour or so and can most likely be made for under $15.00 - maybe more if you or a neighbor don't have access to pine cones.
Wire wreath frame
Glue (I used hot glue - lots of it)
Paint for wreath and teeth (I used 1 color of spray paint and 1 color for the teeth - but as it's a monster wreath, anything goes)
Ping pong balls
Teeth (I used craft sticks/tongue depressors)
Ribbon or other medium for additional decor (optional)
Step 1: Begin With the Corners
Start by flipping over to the back side of the wire frame and glue 4 pine cones into the "corners".
Step 2: Fill In
Fill in the spaces between the corners. Finding the right size to fit can take some patience, but it is well worth it.
Step 3: Inside Ring
After the outside ring, repeat the steps for the inside ring.
Step 4: Beef It Up
After the 2 rings are dry, flip the frame over and begin gluing as many pine cones as desired all over!
Step 5: Paint
Pain the wreath your desired color - no color or technique is right or wrong. Get imaginative!
Step 6: Details
Detail the wreath as desired.
I used ping pong balls for eyes, white painted craft sticks for teeth and added a bow.
Again let your imagination run wild!
Step 7: Finished Product
I also made an instructional video for this project.
