Forget last year’s tired tinsel, we’ve a Christmas decor tutorial that’ll enable you to create something simple yet stunning to add eye-catching elegance to your seasonal decor this year! Penelope Quinn’s beautiful wire art wall decoration is the perfect way to create a handcrafted decoration that can be dressed year after year, to add a fresh and festive feel to any room in the home. Bring the outside in and search for fresh foliage and pine cones to decorate it with each December – it’s a fantastic way to bring the family together to create something special.
You Will Need:
First, use masking tape to attach the stars to your piece of wood. Hammer a nail in, about a centimetre into each apex of the star.
Start wrapping your wire around your star, working the wire over and under the nails. Leave a tail at each end (enough to secure) and cut the wire to size with wire cutters.
Secure the star by wrapping the wire around itself a few times. Don’t worry if it looks messy, we’ll cover this up with foliage!
Decorate with foliage and mini pine cones – you can secure this to the wire with the florist wire. Top Tip: It’s much easier to decorate your stars while they are still on the nails – the wire bends out of shape easily, so don’t remove until you’re absolutely ready to!
Hang from a piece of driftwood, and then find a special spot for your new wire art wall decoration to hang pride of place. You could even add a few fairy lights if you like, for extra festive feels!
