You know those aluminum Jello molds you find at the thrift store I’ve collected a few. Now what should I do with them?
“Make them into wreaths, you’ve done it before”, a little voice in my head said.
In fact I made this Jello mold wreath before I started blogging and it hangs on my pantry door.
This one was so easy I almost hate to share how it came together, but here goes.
First you tie a length of burlap ribbon to the mold and add some extra pieces of ribbon for fullness.
Now attach the clip on Christmas decoration to the ribbon and you have a Jello mold wreath.
To make a another wreath take a piece of upholstery webbing and add a Christmas bow or a similar embellishment.
Wrap the webbing around the mold and hot glue the webbing to the inside. It’s ok but a little too plain for me.
So I went to my Christmas pin stash and found an adorable snowman. Much better don’t you think?
When my grandson saw what I was doing he wanted me to make one for Halloween. So I dug through my Halloween decorations and came up with an old bow, dollar store skeleton and spider web. I hot glued it all onto the mold, easy peasy and he loves it!
Although not exactly a wreath I used three of these molds to create a Snowman in the Kitchen last year.
So have some fun with recycled Jello molds and I bet you can think of even more ways to decorate them. I plan to make a few of these wreaths with Christmas decorations for my antique mall’s Holiday Extravaganza. I will share more about that later.
