I'm making these for a 10 arm chandelier in my dinning room.
To make the cute little cranberry candle wreaths you will need some small grape vine wreaths, that you can find at most craft stores. I got mine at Michaels for 49 cents each x 10 of them so they cost me under $5.
If you like you can also purchase some craft wire and wrap this around the whole wreath when you are done to secure the berries into place, but this isn't necessary. I didn't use any additional wire, I wanted the berries to be scattered about so that you could easily see them from a distance.
When you have made enough wreaths you can then transfer them to your chandelier. Most candle like chandeliers will have a little "wax trey" at their base, which is perfect for these cute little wreaths to sit in.
I hope you enjoyed this little project of mine, all done for about $10. This project is so easy and can be a shared family craft. If you have children, give them each a wreath to decorate. Some times I have my son help me out with little projects like this in between our home school classes.
I have some more projects coming up along the lines of primitive home decor that I can't wait to share with all of you, so keep checking back for more.
Thank you for stopping by,
