JOY TWIG WREATH
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- Eucalyptus bundle
- Neon light kit (we used white)
- 2 x AA Batteries
- Paper and pencil
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- Fishing line/clear thread
- Scissors/Wire Cutters
Step 1 - Choose which word you would like to create for your wreath, we chose the word Joy. Draw your word in the font/style you like onto paper. If you are not confident in doing this by free hand, print off the internet.
Step 2 - Once you have the word on paper start to mould the wire from the Neon kit to follow the design of your word.
Step 3 - When you have finished the design in wire, it is now time to add the neon light rope to your wire design. There are ties that come with the kit but if you want it to be secured completely we used fishing line or clear thread and wrapped it around the neon and the wire to tie them together. Tie off the ends in knots to secure. This can be a bit fiddly but if you continue wrapping as you go it will give a neat finished look.
Step 4 - Now it's time to attach the light sign to your wreath. Use some fishing line to tie your sign onto the twig wreath at the beginning/end of your word. Insert the 2 AA batteries into the battery pack and secure. You can carefully hide all of this in the leaves of the wreath.
Step 5 - Your wreath is now ready to hang on display!
