Easy Gnome & Snowflake Wreath

I’m not sure where you can find the gnome, as I’ve had it in my stash for a year or so and don’t remember where I got it from. Sorry.

Take a foam wreath from Dollar Tree link :https://tinyurl.com/2p85cbpt and wrap the entire wreath with white ribbon, holding it in place with hot glue. I used a combination of white satin ribbon, and seam binding ribbon to accomplish this. The snowflakes were cardboard from Stampin Up, and although they’re retired, I did find some on ebay, link: https://tinyurl.com/2p82bnvs. I painted the snowflakes with white paint from Dollar Tree link: https://tinyurl.com/bde6njk8 then once they were dry, added Brutus Monroe Glitter Glue link: https://tinyurl.com/57tt5w7a to them with a paintbrush, and added clear fine glitter link: https://tinyurl.com/22hzmuaw, then let them set until they were dry.

I took a popsicle stick and cut one end so it came to a point, and jammed it into the inside back of the wreath, so I could prop the gnome against the stick so it would stay in place. Added hot glue under and behind the gnome so it wouldn’t move, then placed the snowflakes around the wreath. stopping so about 1/6th of the wreath only showed the ribbon I’d wrapped around it. I had some smaller foam glitter snowflakes that I added in spots where the larger snowflakes wouldn’t fit, and here’s a link to snowflakes similar to the foam ones I used. https://tinyurl.com/298bkd8p. I took a piece of extra ribbon that was about 8″ long and made a knot about one inch from the end (after folding the ribbon in half) and then I took three small straight pins with pearl heads and attached the ribbon to the inside back of the wreath as the holder.
