Helmar Holiday Hop - Grace's Decorate on a Dollar


It’s that time of year where we all start thinking of the holidays so what better way to get your Holiday spirit than a great HelmarHoliday Hop? Filled with so much Holiday cheer and some amazing projects featuring all the different Helmar Adhesives.
Hello everyone and welcome to my stop on the Helmar HolidayHop. If you have been following along, you should have hopped here from Connie Mercer’s blog. If not, you just have to stop at the Helmar Blog and start from the beginning. There are goodies along the way and we don’t want you to miss a thing.

My Project today will be brief. I know you have a lot of blogs to hit will all the wonderful projects we will be showing off today! This holiday wreath is small but stunning. 



I want to tell you a bit about these products.
  • The Zapdots are fantastic to add dimension. 
  • The Gemstone glue works well on all gemstones but my favorite thing to use it on is glitter since it dries completely clear and lets the sparkle of the glitter shine!
  • The Remove - Well... it's just awesome at what it does. There is a video demonstration at the bottom  of this post.
  • And Helmar Premium Craft Glue - This stuff is awesome I love it for most of my crafty projects.

Below is a photo of the main supplies. I added a few more embellishments. To see an older post on how to make a larger version of these wreaths please click HERE. Instead of a larger foam wreath I glued these cones to a piece of book page 3" square and mad the point of the cones touch in the center. The cones are made of 3" squares too.


After making your wreath. Brush Helmar's Gemstone Glue on where you wish the glitter to be. Sprinkle it with glitter and let dry. Supper easy and it always looks so great when your done!

I built up 4 Zapdots in the center of this wreath to base the center embellishments off of. It is so sturdy and nice and tall.  The adhesive on these puppies is strong and lasts forever! I have not hand any of these release their adhesive like I have with other brands of foam dimensionals.

Now let me show you that Remove magic! 



EDIT: many of you have been asking so here is where you can get the REMOVE Cleaner. Go to Helmar's Blog at the end of this blog hop and look down the left hand side. Main retailers are there and all of our online ones also. Happy Helmar Holidays everyone!

Make sure you leave a comment at every stop because the elves of Helmar will be giving away prizes to some lucky Helmar fans. Now hop on over to Michelle Wallace’s blog to see another amazing Helmar Holiday project. The Holiday Hop will be open for comments until 11:59P.S.T December 4th , so take a look and enjoy a little holiday spirit from all of us on the Helmar Team. Thanks again for stopping by today and Happy Holidays

  15. Oh my, I LOVE your project and hope I get a chance to imitate it. HOWEVER, the video demonstration on Helmar's REMOVE product was AMAZING. I think I need this stuff NOW and hope I can find some today at my Michael's. My craft table is a MESS and I can't get it clean with anything. I bought a clear mat to cover up the goo but I still hate looking at it. TODAY.... I must .... find .... some ......

    Merry Christmas!!
