INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: If displaying the wreath outdoor, be sure to use a stronger glue.

  1. Begin to arrange the wooden slices into a circle. (Use approximately 10 of the large-sized slices for this circle. The largest of the slices should be positioned near the bottom of the wreath.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Next, choose 5 of the smaller slices to be the accent pieces. (They will be placed on every other joint or connection of the larger slices.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Glue all of the connections together where the slices touch.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Cover the smaller slices in glue.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Press the smaller accent slices into position on top of the connection areas.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Flip the wreath over when the glue has set and glue even smaller slices onto all of the connection joint on the back of the wreath.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Add a bit of water to Santa Red and Hauser Light Green so that the wood grain will still be visible when the slices are painted.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Alternate Santa Red and Hauser Light Green on the accent pieces. Paint the largest slice near the bottom with Hauser Light Green. Let the paint dry thoroughly before hand-lettering.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Hand-letter each accent slice with a holiday theme or simple design using a small detail brush and Zinc.
