Select a ceiling medallion to suit the size wreath you want. For either size, spray-paint along the inside edge of the medallion with Sumptuous Purple. Apply a second light coat as needed. Then spray Gloss Black from the middle to the outside edge of the medallion, feathering the edges where it meets the purple.
If you spray too much of one color or the other, add more of the opposite color until you have the look you want.
Using pliers, separate links on the chain to create two lengths about 14 inches long.
The 14-inch chains will work for either a large or small medallion. For a different look, remove links to fit more tightly across the small medallion.
Lay the two sections of chain on paper or a drop cloth to protect your work surface. Then spray different sections with purple and black, leaving small areas unpainted. When the first coat dries, turn the chains over along their length and spray the other side.
Unwind the cheesecloth and ball it up loosely on the protected work surface. Spray the exposed areas black and let dry. Then flip the ball of cheesecloth over and repeat for the other side. The result should be a mottled look with some areas only lightly painted.
Arrange one of the lengths of painted chain diagonally across the medallion and use hot glue to fasten the ends to the back. Repeat for the second chain running the opposite diagonal to form an X shape across the front.
Wrap cheesecloth around the medallion at the top and tie a bow, allowing the ends to rest across the front of the medallion. The remaining cheesecloth can be trimmed to hang the wreath from your front door.
