Stained glass is my favorite thing in the whole world, I have a ton of it and I love every nook and cranny of every single unique piece. I had never even thought of a stained glass wreath so I was completely knocked out when I saw this gorgeous wreath on Youtube, I knew I had to make it. I had to call an old friend of mine who worked for Renassaince Glass, a hand made stained glass company here in Austin in the ’70s, to tell her all about this, she was less than thrilled about the wreath idea, I told her that she was going to change her mind big time when she saw this creation of mine finished and on the door, she laughed of course, but she won’t be laughing long. I started by gathering my materials, first, an oval acrylic crystal cut platter and silver metallic for the center of my wreath. Then some fix-all adhesive glue, utility wire, a package of bootlaces, various silver, sparkling mirror mosaic ornaments, silver ribbon, silver tulle and some baby’s breath faux flowers. You can also add whatever sparkling leftovers you might have, there is no wrong way to do this wreath. I started the wreath by punching 2 holes in the plastic silver platter the mounting some wire in there for hanging, gluing the crystal platter to the silver platter.
Then I used the thin black braided ribbon to make the patterns in the glass.
Then I just decorated the periphery of the wreath with flowers and Christmas ornaments and this project looked stunning. When I called my friend, the stained glass maker, and she was looking at the photos I had texted her, she was almost in tears as she asked me to drive over as soon as I could to help her make one.
