WOOD JOY WREATHS
These ornaments from Holly Lefevre at 504 Main are simply a joy to make! Stain two unfinished wood ornaments and let dry. Purchase “J” and “Y” removable adhesive letters or create your own stencil using a die-cutting machine. For the white ornament, press the letters onto the stained wood, leaving space in the middle for a mini wreath. Paint the front white and let dry. Remove the adhesive letters to reveal the stained wood. For the red ornament, paint the stained ornament white and let dry. Apply your letters, and then go over with red paint. When dry, remove the letters to reveal the white paint. Sand the edges and front of the ornaments for a distressed look. Wipe clean with tack cloth and then glue a mini wreath between the letters. Add red-and-white baker’s twine for a hanger.
