This year we’ve really gotten a jump start on our Christmas decorating! Using instructions from Home Depot’s upcoming DIY Workshop, I made this Christmas Wreath Trio and gave it a snowy twist.

It couldn’t have been easier, I bought simple wreaths, hobby wire, and some ribbon. The original project uses these beautiful ornament balls to finish off the wreaths:

I decided to use fairy lights and drywall texture to give my wreaths a snowy glow. Yes, drywall texture! It was quick and dry to touch after 15 minutes. And best yet, it hasn’tbeen  a flaky mess.

To flock the wreaths, I used one can of Homax drywall texture spray in the orange peel finish. I sprayed generously in a ventilated area outside on a tarp. The one can was plenty for the three wreaths! I was surprised at how quickly it dried to the touch, much faster than if I had tried spray paint.

Next, I added these Martha Stewart Living battery operated LED lights. These are so fun at night! They also came with a timer feature: 6 hours on, 18 hours off. In case you’re like me and forget to turn lights off. :)

The Home Depot offers Workshops at all of their locations for do-it-yourselfers of all ages and experience levels. You might be familiar with their kids’ workshops, but they also offer Do-It-Yourself (DIY) and Do-It-Herself (DIH). In these you can learn how to build décor projects, how to make easy home repairs, and how to operate tools through demonstrations and step-by-step instructions. I’ve even taken one on how to build a succulent garden!

    Drywall texture? Who knew! It looks so real. Too bad the real stuff is heading towards us sooner than we’d like!

    AM I love it! The drywall texture is so smart! I never would have thought of that. We won’t be seeing any of the real thing down here in FL so the faux stuff will have to do! So pretty!
