Combine two of this year's biggest trends – metallics and geometrics – as inspiration for your DIY Christmas craft project.
The one decorative piece that is always a must-have at Christmas is the wreath. But instead of opting for the traditional circular design, a geometric version will give you the contemporary edge you need. Follow this step-by-step guide from the team at Rust-Oleum.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Rust-Oleum Metallic spray paint, Bright Copper (£9.49, Amazon)
- Geometric wreath (£8, Hobbycraft)
- Craft wire (£4.79, Amazon)
- Scissors (£5.87, Amazon)
1. Gather your chosen foliage and ensure it is completely dry before starting your project. Move the foliage to a well-ventilated space and place on top of a dustsheet (£4.50, Wilko) or some old newspapers.
2. Take your chosen can of Rust-Oleum spray paint and shake thoroughly. Hold the can approximately 30cm from the surface of the foliage and spray. Apply several light coats a few minutes apart. Leave to dry in a well ventilated place.
3. Once fully dry, attach your foliage to the wreath using craft wire, layering the leaves until you are happy with your design.
