Military camouflage was first practiced in the mid 18th century and to this day, "Camouflage is used to protect military equipment such as vehicles, guns, ships, aircraft and buildings as well as individual soldiers and their positions."
Like my first DIY wreath, Lions, Tigers & Bears, I decided to use a grapevine wreath as my base. The other items needed for my project were spray paint for the wreath base color and two acrylic paints in camouflage colors. I also found plastic military combat figures like my brothers played with when they were little.
My first step was to spray paint the wreath and then add the camouflage paint to create a realistic camouflage effect.
And finally, I fashioned a burlap bow to complete my "Thanksgiving" wreath for all the men and women serving in the military and their families.
If you know a military family who you would like to receive this "Thanksgiving" Camouflage wreath, please leave a comment and I will be selecting a winner from your comments.
Let me know what you think....I'd love for you to become a follower!
