Faith Inspired Wreath

Katrina Hunt | Maya Road

Bible journaling is gaining in popularity, but I think creating faith based items in general is on the rise.  A wreath is a perfect way to create something to hang on your door, in your room or even as a gift for a fellow church goer!

Start with a basic wreath form from your local crafting store.  There are a couple of different types, wooden and foam.  The one pictured here has a wooden base and the smaller wreath form is also wooden.  You can find both in the floral section.  To decorate the base, you can do several different things: cover with twine (pictured below), cover with strips of fabric, paint (wooden frame), cover with paper (paper flowers are fun for this) and so much more.  I had specific items that I had been asked to work with, so I incorporated them as much as I could here. 

Note about this wreath, it's side heavy, which I didn't realize until I tried to hang it!  Remember to think about how and where you will hang your wreath.  I could easily add some wire to the back top section to make this easier to hang.

Foiling is also hot right now, so I thought I would add some DecoFoil to my project. I did this with sheets of  foam adhesive that are made made specifically to work with the foil.  You can use this foam with manual or electronic die cutting machines.  Here I used it with steel dies from Maya Road and ran them thru my Cuttlebug. The brand of foil and foam adhesive I used was DecoFoil by ThermOWeb.  

I had a little area that I didn't like how the twine laid, so I just covered it up!  I actually planned this by making it opposite of the smaller wreath.  This balanced out the sides.

I offset the cross, as I had the "amazing grace" saying that I wanted to use. I knew I wanted the cross to be gold and making the "amazing grace" gold seemed to just fit!

Have fun creating some faith based projects.  The smaller wreath layout would be great for the cover of a mini album, gratitude journal etc!
