Recycled Christmas Wreath-2

Today I'am inspired to post about the creativity of recycled Christmas wreaths. Aside from being so colorful they can also add a sense of elegance to your door room or walls or they can be look completely tacky, depending on how you made it. Since a wreath is a repeating pattern wrapped in a circle, you can create them out of practically anything.

If you drink a lot of take-out coffee, 
this is a great way to re-use the coffee sleeves
make a wreath out of them.

Instructional Santa Soda Can Christmas Ornaments

Materials Needed:
Rinsed and dried pop cans (any flavor, but red ones might take a little less paint) 
for as many ornaments as desired
Red enamel spray paint
Hot Glue Gun and lots of gluesticks
White acrylic paint - large tube
Small paint brushes
Small tube of flesh color paint or mix a little red and yellow into white
Glitter or other "snow" type product to mix with white paint for texture
Small Pompoms in red for noses and white for hats
Glue on Eyes - disk type found in doll crafting section
Felt for Gloves (used black with glitter already on it) 2 sheets for 48
1/2" wide ribbon for belt ( any color or pattern you desire - used houndstooth)
Any kind of red material for hat if you have a sewing machine 
otherwise purchase premade small santa hats
Any kind of white trim such as rick rack or piping for hats
Polyfiber stuffing - about a ping pong ball amount for each hat
White doll hair on a metal wire to use for beard cut into 3 inch length 
then bent into a "U" shape
Stick on or glue on gems for belt

Step 1
Remove tabs from cans, insert a stick or other device about the size of the opening of the can to hold can, spray sides of cans and let dry. I used a large cardboard box to help contain the overspray. - and set cans on newspaper to dry… You will need to do 2 coats to cover the graphics on the cans but it's not necessary to make completely opaque.

Step 2
Mix some white paint and glitter for texture, then using a dry brush technique, dab paint mixture onto cans around the "neck" , down the front and bottom of Santa's suit. Let dry.
Optional: Took a white opaque pen and wrote "Merry Christmas 2012" on the back of the suit.

Step 3
Paint flesh tone onto entire top of can. Let Dry.

Step 4
Very carefully fold over the can slightly above the middle to create the shape of Santa. You will have some paint flake at the corners of the fold but it will be covered by the next step.

Step 5
Mix a heavier combination of glitter and white paint to dab onto the folded portion of the can to create Santa's cuffs - this should cover any cracking of the red paint. Let dry.

Step 6
Cut out felt into shape of gloves about 1" size and 2 - 2.5" strips of ribbon for belt. Hot glue the ribbon onto the can, then the gloves and finish with gems.

Step 7
Hot glue the eyes, nose and beard to create the face. Make sure to have a little of the opening show through for his "HO HO HO" mouth!

Step 8
Cut out about a 4" triangle of red material for hats, sew on white trim on one edge, then fold and stitch seam, turn inside out and hand sew white pompom to end,
stuff polyfiber inside base of hat - then hot glue the front and back to top of can. I used gold safety pins to create a hook to hang, but you could use any type of hanger.

Step 9
Enjoy giving to friends and thanks for recycling!!
