Holiday Wreath

This is my newest craft project, a fun Holiday Wreath!  It turned out so beautiful!  It is always so great to be prepared for the next Holiday season.
First thing I made, the chalkboard.  What you need: an old/cheap frame, chalkboard paint, cardboard, and a paintbrush.
 Cut cardboard to fit into frame and paint two coats of chalkboard paint (letting it dry between coats).
Next, let's make some rosettes!
Make a lot of spirals, and I mean a lot!  Approximately 70-85, depending on how big you make them.
It takes a lot of these little rosettes!
Hot glue all the rosettes to the wreath.  I arranged about four on a time and then glued to make sure they were evenly spaced.
Attach the framed chalkboard.
And you have a beautiful Christmas Wreath to hang inside or out!
This wreath can be used for other holidays as well...
