A Not So Christmas Wreath

12 Dec

So, I knew that I wanted a wreath, but I wanted something a little less traditional.  Well, Morgana of Fellow Creatives posted this wreath from Pickles and I was sold. 

The felt was an unlikely choice, but the colors were beautiful.  I knew I had to make one of my very own.  I rushed over to the tutorial, but it involved sewing, and that wasn’t going to happen for me, so I chose my own route. 

Here’s what I used:

  • Poms in all different colors
  • A styrofoam circle
  • glue gun

I started in the center and just slowly worked my way around gluing, sticking and then moving on.  I tried to vary the sizes and colors as I went along.

I know it doesn’t look like much yet, but it gets better…

Molly was curious about what I was doing, so I let her try it on:

Then, I was all done, but I thought it needed something else…

So I added a ribbon and hung it on our door:

Ta da!  For about $6 I had my very own wreath.

    I saw this from pickles, too. It’s really fun! I liek how you adjusted it to make your own. The bow is a nice addition.
