DIY: How to Make a Wreath Witherspoon | Holiday Fun

How to Make a Wreath Witherspoon

In a popular season 3 episode of The Mindy Project titled “Christmas,” Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) turns to Danny Castellano (Chris Messina) and says, “Wreath Witherspoon?  Danny, this is the nicest thing in your apartment.”  (I wasn’t watching TMP back then; I only started this year.  The comedy aired its final episode recently but, thankfully, you can catch all six seasons here on Hulu.) When I first saw this episode, I thought, Ooohh! I want a Wreath Witherspoon for Christmas.  What’s not to love?  Mindy Kaling? Reese Witherspoon? Puns? Love, love, love.  If you’ve been following me on instagram, you’ve seen behind the scenes videos of the Making of Wreath Witherspoon.  The only tools I purchased were the synthetic wreath and glitter bow–both from Michael’s.  Making Wreath Witherspoon is my favorite new holiday tradition.

The Tools You Need:

 Step by Step:

  1. Search for Reese Witherspoon images. I wanted a mix of my favorite red carpet looks (like Reese wearing a black Valentino dress at the 2002 Oscars) and her most famous roles especially Legally Blonde‘s Elle Woods.
  2. Print the pictures.
  3. Cut them out.
  4. Lay the wreath out.
  5. Map out where you would put the pictures and the bow.
  6. Tie the bow to the bottom of the wreath.
  7. Tape the pictures to the wreath.  Use generous amounts of tape.  Pinch the picture to the wreath when you are applying tape to make it really stick.  This is why it’s important to use an artificial wreath.
  8. Hang it up!
  9. Post pictures on social media using #wreathwitherspoon.
Merry Christmas!

TA DA!  Happy Holidays!

Hi, I have five illnesses--bipolar disorder, myasthenia gravis (neuromuscular autoimmune disease), polycystic ovarian syndrome, asthma, and psoriasis. Most of the organs in my body are affected. I'm dedicated to being a stylist for sick women. As someone who has experienced changes in my appearance due to my 12 meds (including Prednisone), I know how hard it can be when your face and body change overnight. (In fact, because of treatment, between 2008 to 2010, I went from a size 0 to a size 10. While I lost the weight, there are permanent changes in my face and body, which I've grown to appreciate.) My blog will also help women deal with other issues like surviving chronic pain and fatigue. Healthy people can also use this blog as a window into what life with illness is like. Let this website be a place where we can draw strength from each other despite our illnesses and find solutions to our everyday challenges!
