Introduction: Deer Bone Wreath
NOTE: This is NOT a full tutorial, in my haste to complete this project, I forgot to take step by step pictures.
I'M SORRY MY LOVIES!! Please ask me any questions you would like about the wreath and I will answer them.
Behold, this is the next phase in using the deer bones I collected. First were the Cain Blades, now a wreath.
The concept is essentially the same as the Ocean Wreath tutorial, this time, instead of shells and starfish, it's bones, moss and dried grasses.
-Deer Bones, cleaned
-Gray moss clusters
-Dried grass clusters (wrap floral wire around the stems of a few dried grasses)
-Bag of green moss
-Hot Glue gun and sticks
-Wreath base (recommend a straw wreath or grapevine wreath)
Step 1: Construction
1) Lay out your bones, moss clusters (the gray ones that have been
secured with floral wire, and the wire clustered dried grasses. The green soft moss gets put on last.
2) When you have decided on the placement of your items, begin by securing the largest bones to the wreath with floral wire.
3) Once the big bones are in place, shove in the gray moss clusters.
4) Now add the dried grass, use them to hide the floral wire you used to secure the bones as best you can.
5) Open your bag of green moss, gently pull apart the clumps so only the individual moss growths are scattered about. Using a low temp hot glue gun, glue the individual moss bits onto the wreath to hide any of the wreath base, floral wire and to fill in empty looking areas.
6) Cut off all excess wire and glue threads.
7) Hang up on a wreath hangar and enjoy creeping out your neighbors. Srsly, the little girl next door started crying!
