Pop Christmas Wreath Idea

This fun Mommy and Me idea is great for celebrating the “go-green” spirit as well as the holiday spirit! You and your kid can help design the pieces together picking your favorite DeCoRé clay colors, pewter Christmas charms and Swarovski flatbacks to use inside each bottle cap. Here are some quick steps to making this wreath, but just remember to purchase your own wooden wreath frame and find some old bottle caps to work with. Depending on the size of your wreath, you may need more or less bottle caps. We used 16 bottle caps for our project, which was just enough to space evenly and cover the circumference of ours.

Step One

Cover the front half of the wreath frame with Gilders Paste. We used the German Silver color because it was a festive yet neutral color that complemented our color scheme. You can read our Handy Tip on how to use Gilders Paste in the Learning Center if you need help. Allow your Gilders Paste to dry completely before you finish your design.

Step Two

Choose two or more DeCoRé colors to work with, and prepare one at a time. We used White and Erinite colors to follow a Christmas theme. Fill approximately half of your bottle caps with the one color and decorate with various charms, flatbacks or transfer sheet images. Prepare the other color, fill in the rest of the bottle caps and decorate as before. Allow all of the bottle caps to cure completely for 24 hours. Read our Handy Tip in the Learning Center if you need help using DeCoRé clay.

If you do choose to work with transfer sheets, be sure to finish the images with sealant to protect them.

Step Three

Arrange your bottle caps onto the wood wreath as desired, then glue each bottle cap and allow your piece to dry. You’re now ready to adorn your piece with fir tree branches and hang it for all to see!

    If your Netgear router is not working just fine, then you should reset it to factory defaults. To do so, you first need to look for the reset button at the rear of the router and press it using a paper clip or a similar tool. You need to keep the reset button pressed for about seven seconds and then release it. Let the modem router reboot and see if it helps. This will finally reset Netgear router.
