Here is the video tutorial, with all the details you need!  Remember to Subscribe to Craft Klatch on YouTube!






Directions:
1.  Take your wire wreath and add 3/16" dowel rods.  You are going to have to cut them to fit.  They should slide in nicely.









2.  Permanently attach the dowel rods with epoxy clay.  It cures hard and looks like a weld joint once painted.




3.  Using wood discs and cut down dowel rods, I created hotdogs and hamburgers.  I attached a wire to both, so I would be able to attach it to the wreath later.






4.  I covered both with polymer clay and then used pastel chalk the create char marks.  You can see all the details on how I created the hamburgers and hotdogs in the video.





5.  Paint the wreath with the dowel rods.  I did a nice silver and it took two coats.




6.  Then I found more accessories at the dollar store, so I attached them, with wire as well.



7.  Once everything is attached, you have a yummy looking, one-of-a-kind wreath!  Bring on the burgers!



 8.  You can add flags for Memorial Day, or the Fourth of July!




That's it!  Thanks for stopping by and remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
