Add some holiday glitz and glam to your Christmas with this gold and silver foiled star wreath that you can make with this easy tutorial!
I’m not sure what it is about wreaths that I love so much. They can be very basic like a fresh pine wreath that’s only green or a brightly colored poinsettia ribbon wreath (like this one here.)
Be sure to scroll down this post to check out all the other wreaths from the 12 Days of Holiday Ideas Blog Hop.
The Christmas decor that I really adore, more than wreaths, are stars and snowflakes. I love both stars and snowflakes for holiday decor because they can be carried over, into January, past the New Year.

Layering different sized of wooden stars gives a dramatic effect! Of course the gold and silver foil helps too! Did you seen the gold leafed Christmas tree decor that I made last year? This gold and silver foiled star wreath matches those trees perfectly!
Of course adding the gold and silver leaf to the stars is pretty easy. Just spray the stars with the spray adhesive (do it outside because it’s stinky!) Let the adhesive dry for a few minutes so it becomes tacky. Then lay the stars, sticky side down on to the foil. Remove the excess foil and use it for the other stars. It’s a little messy, but a lot of fun!
This silver and gold foiled star wreath has ALL THE SPARKLE! And you know how I love me some sparkle! If you aren’t feeling the white stars then use black paint! Or even aqua! I used the white as a base as to not make the wreath too blingy!
1. On three of the four large star packets (and many of the smaller wooden stars as well) lay out in a large cardboard box and take outside. Lightly spray stars with spray adhesive. Set aside to let glue dry a little and become tacky, about 5 minutes.
2. For the rest of the large stars and many of the smaller stars, lay in a cardboard box and take outside. Spray paint the stars with the white spray paint. Let dry.
3. Apply the gold or silver leaf to the stars that have the spray glue on them. Rub the leaf into the star and remove any excess leafing.
4. Once all the stars have silver and gold leafing on them, start gluing the large stars on the wreath form, using the E600, including the white ones and the leafed ones.
5. Layer the stars on the wreath form and glue each on, starting with the largest stars at the bottom.
6. Let dry and enjoy!
