How to Make Your Own “Wreath Witherspoon” for the Holidays
Today I’m going to talk to you about a gal we know and love: Reese Witherspoon! There’s a Reese for everyone, whether you identify more with her Legally Blonde character or her Wild side. In other words, she really gets us all, doesn’t she? That’s why we were over the moon when we heard about the Wreath Witherspoon trend. Combining our love for puns, the holidays AND Reese, this ode to all three deserves a solid slow clap. Today we’re making our own version and we’ll walk you through the steps.
Oh and before we get started, we’ve got to give Reese one more pat on the back for her brand Draper James. We styled our wreath as table decor, acting as a centerpiece for a holiday feast, surrounded by Draper James dinnerware and other table decor. You can check out all of these special edition wreath-patterned products on the Draper James site!
Materials and Tools:
- eucalyptus wreath
- Reese Witherspoon photos printed on paper
- red cardstock
- gold spray paint
- metallic tape
- hot glue gun + glue
- X-ACTO knife
First order of business is to spray paint your wreath. Be sure to do this in a well-ventilated area and give it a few coats. Remember, hold the can about a foot away from the wreath. We know it seems like a great idea to spray it mere inches away, but that will great “drips” and won’t result in an even layer of paint.
Print out your favorite Reese photos. We resized each into 1/5-inch squares in Photoshop and printed them on cardstock. Using a cutting mat (not pictured above!), your ruler and an X-ACTO knife to cut out each photo. Then cut out red cardstock squares that are about a 1/4 inch larger than the photos.
Our tape was thick, so we cut it into smaller strips. Note: the link in the materials list is for rose gold washi so if you get that, you won’t need to do this step. Tape the photos to the red cardstock on the diagonal.
Hot glue your photos to a branch or leaf, evenly spacing them out. You might want to lay them out first so you get the right distribution.
There you have it!
Pop this baby on your door, a wall or use it as a centerpiece on your dinner table.
The wine bag, place mat, plate, napkin and Deck the Halls Y’all coaster are all from the Draper James line if you want to go full Reese on your table settings :)
