Today I am sharing how to make a hazelnut wreath. This has been on my craft bucket list for some time now. Do you have one? If you do let me know what’s on it.
If you are new to Cloches & Lavender, welcome I am truly happy your are here for a visit.
How To Begin Making A Hazelnut Nut Wreath
First, begin by buying an 8″ wreath form. This can be this wreath form or this wreath form. Now for my wreath project I am using an 8″ wire wreath form. Because it’s wire wrap the form with burlap ribbon. This is easy to do and takes no time.
Now is a great time to plug the glue gun in to heat up for adding the hazelnuts to the wreath form.
Begin gluing the hazelnuts around by adding glue to the bottom of the hazelnuts. The first row of hazelnuts is the most time consuming.
Here is a good time to choose the ribbon to hang the hazelnut wreath. Doing this now will allow for the hazlenut wreath to hang flat. Lay the ribbon in the center spot on the wreath to give you an idea of the space needed. Notice the gap in the photo below.
After adding the first row, continue filling the wreath form with the remaining nuts. Incidentally, adding the rest of the pieces to this project goes very quicly. For this project I used 105 hazelnuts.
By the way, after gluing the first row of hazelnuts, this project flies.
- 8″ wreath form
- hot glue gun and hot glue
- burlap ribbon if using a metal wreath form
- hazelnuts in the shell
- metal skewer or a thin heat resitant tool
- Spanish moss
Adding Spanish Moss To The Wreath For A Finished Look
Now, add Spanish moss to the hazelnut wreath for a finished look. A small amount of moss is all it takes to fill in the spaces on this project. Cut a small piece with a scissor.
Next, add a tiny amount of hot glue in a section. Using metal skewer or heat resist tool push the Spanish moss in empty spaces. Incidentally, this step goes quickly.
The Spanish moss gives this hazelnut wreath a finished look and adds texture as well as another nature element.
Finishing The Wreath And Adding Silver To The Hazelnuts
Lastly, I add silver gilding wax to the hazelnut tops. Another option is drybrushing the tops with silver metallic craft paint. This process is quick and adds another layer to this project. Let dry for an hour. However, if gilding wax is added rub with a lint free rag.
Now hang with ribbon of your choice. I added a dark silver satin ribbon to blend with the gilding on the hazelnuts.
I hope you enjoyed how to make a hazelnut wreath. It’s a very easy project to do and works from now throughout the winter months. I’d love to read your thoughts about this project so please leave comment and feel free to reach out to me.
