DIY Peace Sign Christmas Wreath Using Garland

peace sign wood wreath cut out
I started by drawing a peace sign shape on a piece of plywood and cut it out
with the jigsaw. I wasn't too precise since I knew it would be covered.

I sprayed with green spray paint in case any of the wood
happened to peek through the garland.

bag of Christmas evergreen garland
I found a giant bag full of garland at a garage sale for a couple of 
dollars. It's the old fashioned plastic-y kind. 
I actually think the plastic type of garland looks more realistic.

I cut the garland into manageable pieces and attached it to the form 
using green floral wire.

After it was all attached, I had a few bare spots on the edges.
I used hot glue to cover the exposed edges with little pieces of garland

The hot glue did the trick.

I added a small d-ring hanger on the back.

I knew this wouldn't show up well on my dark front door 
so it's hanging on my back door for now.

Peace! :)
