How to:

1. Trace a circle on a piece of cardboard with a marker that is the size of the wreath you want. We used a 5 gallon bucket.

2. Find the center between the vertical lines and mark with a pin or nail. Measure the length from the nail to the edge of the arch. This is radius of the circle that will become the arch. In our design, our radius is 21”.

3. With the foam brushes, paint the sticks as desired. We chose a two-toned design using  Miller Premium Eggshell Green Glow | 0788 and Frog Green | 0779 for more depth and interest. Let dry.

4. Once dry, reassemble the wreath, using the hot glue to secure the sticks. Work slowly and watch your spacing as you go around. Attach a bow and hang. Happy Holidays!
