Easy-to-Make Holiday Wreaths

            MAUMEE, OHIO – Looking for holiday decorations that are simple to make and won't fade over time? Try using Fypon® ceiling medallions to create centerpieces, wreaths and cardholders that are fun, fast family activities.

            "Polyurethane ceiling medallions are versatile and easy to use for holiday projects," says Anita Piety with Fypon. "While you'd normally look up to find a ceiling medallion surrounding a fan or light fixture, these creative DIY projects bring their beauty to eye level."

Card Wreath

            For a new way to display the holiday cards you receive, start by selecting and hand painting or spray painting a decorative ceiling medallion. When dry, use a staple gun to attach hard poster board on the back of the medallion, leaving the sides closest to the outer edges "open" so that when the medallion is flipped over cards can be slipped into the poster board. Staple a loop of ribbon to the back of the medallion to hang on a picture hook or nail.

Holiday Messages

            To decorate either the home interior or exterior, select three similarly-sized Fypon ceiling medallions with large round holes in the middle and spray paint them in holiday colors. Print out several holiday words like "Joy - Peace - Hope" and place one word on the back of each medallion, centering it in the hole and facing outwards. Then tape or staple the word to the medallion, along with a ribbon for hanging the finished piece. Hang on a wall or door for the season.

Table Centerpieces

            Looking for a holiday centerpiece that's easy to make? Simply paint a ceiling medallion and then add a battery-operated candle in the center "hole" portion of the medallion. Position these holiday medallions down the length of a dining room table to set the mood for the holidays.  After the holidays, the painted medallions can be reused in a variety of ways --- as a picture frame or with small mirrors covering the center holes from the back to make a unique wall display of mirrored medallions.
