Magnetic Holiday Wreath
With the holidays right around the corner, families across the country are getting in the spirit of the season by decorating their homes with their favorite decorations. Rather than purchasing new expensive decorations, why not get the kids involved and make your own magnetic holiday wreath? When you finish with your creation, enjoy the magic of magnets by attaching your wreath to any magnetic surface without the hassle of permanent hangers like nails or hooks that leave your walls and doors with holes.
What You Need
Begin by gathering your supplies:
- Any size wreath
- Small holiday decorations to decorate your wreath (bells, sprigs of berries, battery-powered lights, etc.)
- Hot glue
- Wood glue
- Magnets (we recommend: ½” x ⅛” disc magnets)
- One sheet of plywood
- Drill press and ½ bit attachment (optional)
- Spray paint (we recommend black)
- Metal craft wire
- Wire snips
- Trace the outline of your wreath size onto your plywood sheet
- Cut out the circular backboard for your wreath with a bandsaw
- Spray paint your wood frame and let dry appropriately
- If you have a drill press available, drill 6 circular cutouts at equal lengths apart from each other on your wooden frame to house your magnets tightly inside
- Use a small amount of wood glue to secure your magnets inside of your cutouts (if you do not have a drill press, skip step 3 and simply glue your magnets onto your wooden frame)
- Secure your wreath to the wood frame using metal craft wire
- Decorate your wreath with the elements of your choice, securing them in place with a dab of hot glue
- Attach your wreath to any magnetic surface and enjoy!
