I have seen several crafters make moons out of wire wreaths and I was so excited to give it a try! I put a little bit of a different look to it by adding colorful beads and lace!
- 2 Wire Wreaths
- White Chalk Paint
- Paint Brush
- Beads of your Choice
- Wire Cutters
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
This is a very simple but fun craft! The first step is to cut a section of each wreath out with your wire cutters. This does take some strength! I had to give it a few tries. Below is a picture of how I cut mine. You will want to be sure that more ends are free from the vertical bar.
Once you have cut the sections out. You can paint the wreaths white. I used chalk paint, but it would be easier to use spray paint. ￼
Once the wreaths are dry then you can add your beads to the middle of the moon. The wreaths have a natural curvature in them. The goal is to clasp the beads between the curves of both wreaths. So the typical “backs” of the wreaths will be facing each other.
I then cut a piece of lace and wrapped it around the sections holding the beads to secure them.
Then I cut two more strips of lace and folded them in half and wrapped those around the ends to hold the loose ends together. You will want to wrap them ends pretty tight to give it a crescent moon shape. I used hot glue to hold the lace in place.
Then you have your own moon decoration! You can use this as wall decor or as a shelf sitter! I hope you give this a try!
