Holiday Wreaths seemed to be the perfect theme for this week. Last Thursday, I looked out my patio doors while working at my computer and all I saw was SNOW! I know I wasn’t the only one surprised to see it, but there it was falling on top of my yard full of unraked leaves. It made me in the mood to think, “WREATHS” for the holidays. Today I am featuring a tulle wreath.
Tulle Wreath Supplies
- 10” metal wreath hoop
- 2 spools of tulle,
burgundy tulle, cut into equal 18” lengths
- Embellishments, purchased fall flower collection with leaves, burlap ribbon made from a cut piece of burlap
Cut the tulle into 18” lengths. You can make them longer, if you wish. 24” will make a larger wreath but you will need another spool of tulle. HINT: scrunch the tulle at the place you want to cut it to make it easier to cut.
Put the two ends together to make a loop, put the loop under the metal hoop, fold the ends of the tulle over the metal hoop and pull the ends through the loop. Pull tightly to make a knot.
Repeat all the way around the hoop until you have your desired thickness. Attach a ribbon to the metal hoop to create a loop to hang the wreath.
Embellishment can be anything you wish to add. The sky is the limit! I wired a purchased fall flower with leaves and a floppy burlap bow to use it at Thanksgiving. Hint: Since the color is burgundy, adding Christmas embellishments later will carry it throughout the season.
Can’t wait to see your tulle wreaths for the holidays. Please send in your ideas and creations. There is a link on the right side of this blog.
