Mini Spiral Wreath

Sometimes you find really great tutorials for real life crafts that you can make in miniature. Today I found Michele Made Me's blog. I tried her tutorial for spiral notebook ornaments.

I used 28 gauge florist wire and wrapped it around a 1/4" straw to make the spirals. For this one inch wreath I wrapped the wire around the straw 40 times. From there I followed Michele's instructions. Cute, huh?


I thought I would try adding beads to another one. You know how I love beads!

As I wrapped the wire around the straw I added a glass seed bead to every third turn.

I slid the wire off the straw and stretched the spirals to about three inches. Then I threaded 1/8 inch ribbon through the center.



When you pull the ends of the ribbon together it will form a circle. Then you just tie a little bow at the bottom and you have a mini wreath.


I may go back and add a drop of glue to place the beads where I want them?  I like how they turned out.

Thanks Michele! I see lots of other things on your blog that I'd like to make in miniature. :D
