A while back I posted about some fun Holiday wreaths that my girl friends and I made. That is definitely a Holiday craft, and one that is not too difficult. I didn't take any step by step photos for directions when we had our girls craft night, but I'll give it a shot at giving a brief description of how to make them!
When I made mine, I purchased a wreath from Michaels on clearance for $2. I purchased a roll of 2 inch ribbon, some tulle (can be purchased on the spool or by the yard at Hobby Lobby), any decor small enough to put on your wreath- maybe a welcome sign, or pumpkin, Christmas ornaments, etc.... Hot Glue (wire if you don't want to permanently attach your decorations).
For this fall wreath I made, I started with the tulle. I tied about 20 in pieces (around 5 or 6 of each color) randomly around the wreath, then I also tied about 10-15 in pieces of ribbon around the wreath as well around 6-8 pieces. You can intertwine the tulle and ribbon throughout your wreath to make it look 'full.' After you've got most of the wreath covered, you can start decorating it with the accessories that you bought. On this one above I bought a few leaves/bead sprays, a sparkled pumpkin, a scarecrow and the sign to hang in the middle/top. I either super glued the accessories, or stuck them into the wreath with the sticks that were attached to them (cut to size).
This Christmas greenery wreath was simply made by just hot gluing the ornaments down, and then cutting the bead sprays sticks down to size, to simply stick into the wreath. SOOO easy!
This is the Christmas wreath that I made at our girls night. Again I just added the tulle and ribbon to make it look full, and then hot glued my decorations as I saw fit.
Another Christmas wreath made by just hot gluing the ornaments on!
I'm sure this is the worlds WORST tutorial EVER, so if you have ANY questions please feel free to leave a comment (make sure your commenting profile format is set so that I can email you back). It would have been so much easier to explain if I had step by step photos.
Cannot wait to see what all you girls come up with for your Holiday Crafts/DIY! This is one of my favorite topics!
