DIY Wreath

It’s that time of year and we’re busy decorating the house for the holidays.  I’ve been in a wreath making mood and made 2 of these tulle wreaths.

It’s so easy to make, it took me about an hour. and very inexpensive.  I got a foam wreath forms from Walmart for about $5.  I also got 10 yard rolls of sparkly tulle there for $1 a roll.  The rolls are 6″ wide.  For each wreath I used 2 rolls of red and 2 rolls of green tulle costing $4.  Bringing the cost of the basic wreath to $9.  I hot glued glitter bird ornaments I had left over from another project, the birds cost about .30 cents each, bringing the total cost of this wreath to $9.60.

Anyone whose ever made a tutu can make this wreath in a snap, it uses the same tying technique.  For my wreaths I made the green tulle shorter than the red tulle giving the wreath a fuller look.  I pulled the shorter green tulle forward on the form and pulled alternating longer red tulle towards the back giving it a layered look.

You can use any color you want for the basic wreath and decorate it however you want, if you even want to!  It looks very pretty without any added ornaments.   Here’s how I made my wreaths.
