Getting ready for Christmas…..DIY Christmas

Equestrian Wreath that lasts all year long –    Do you have any spare tack laying around or ask friends for any old straps, leathers, etc…..  You can turn them quickly into great things!

 

First start out with a regular wire wreath frame and some florist wire.

 

Then select straps- all sorts of straps- stirrup leathers, martingale neck straps, reins, breastplates, etc….  whatever you can find that easily wrap around the frame.

Next- Get to wrapping!  You may need to add the florist wire wrapping around as well so that it secures the leather as you go around the frame.

Keep going till you’ve covered the entire frame!

Beautiful!


 

For Christmas-


  You can add greens and berries easily- just tuck them into the strap rounds.  Im in Australia and evergreens dry out pretty quickly so I used gum tree leaves and painted the gum nuts red for that festive look.

Merry Christmas-
