Gingerbread Table Wreath Centerpiece
I have to admit that I was a bit stumped with today’s wreath theme. Not because I don’t love making wreaths, but because I don’t have any place to hang another wreath. But who says a wreath needs to be hanging on the wall?! I needed a centerpiece for my table, so I made a gingerbread table wreath!
- plain fir wreath
- 2.5″ wired ribbon
- 25 tinsel pipe cleaners in various colors – gold, red, green, silver
- ginger bread ornaments or ornaments of your choice (store-bought or DIY baking soda gingerbread ornaments)
- Fluff the wreath.
- Add ribbon in a zig zag pattern around the wreath, using the wreath branches to secure the ribbon.
- Place ornaments around the wreath form, using the wreath branches to secure them in place.
- Wrap the pipe cleaners around a finger and place into the wreath. Since the wreath is laying flat, I just poked the pipe cleaners into the wreath form.
- Add candles, a lantern filled with ornaments, or any other item to fill the center of the wreath form. I used a gumball machine with a winter scene in it.
Now, it’s time to display the gingerbread table wreath on your holiday table!
