I love Christmas! It is absolutely my favorite time of the year. I know that it has been over now for a few weeks, but I was on Pinterest today pinning away stuff for next Christmas when I looked at a pin I had added just before this Christmas. It has been re-pinned 168 times! That may not be a lot when you consider that some posts are re-pinned thousands of times, but I’ve never had anything that I have personally created shared more than maybe 5 times. So it’s a big deal for me!
The Santa tulle wreath that I made was so easy and fun to do. I found an old Santa hat that I had bought from the dollar store and pinned it in place on a styrofoam wreath I bought at Hobby Lobby for around 3 or 4 dollars. Then I got some sparkly white tulle from Hobby Lobby as well. I bought it half off ( as I always do with tulle) so it cost me about 3 bucks.
When I make tutus or wreaths I always take a side of a case of Coke that I cut off a long time ago. I wrap the tulle around it and then cut on one end so all of my tulle is the same length. This little hack I found on Pinterest makes life so much easier.
Then it was just a matter of tying the tulle pieces in double knots all around the bottom of the wreath. I made mine pretty full, but you could use as much, or as little, tulle as you want. I found the little stocking pin in a box of jewelry my husband had bought at a local auction. I think it makes the whole wreath that much cuter!
I got so many compliments on it that
I’m thinking of making more next year to sell at some local craft fairs, among other things.
If you’re like me, and enjoy crafting, but don’t find that much time to devote to it, this little wreath is perfect. It won’t take too much time, but it looks great! Happy crafting!
Until next time,
