DIY Christmas Wreath

This is a quick and easy wreath to make for the holidays!

Items needed:

12" Styrofoam wreath
Tinsel garland (approx. 3 feet)
Med. size plastic bulbs (used for ceramic Christmas trees.  I bought a bag of 150 bulbs and had leftovers)
Hot glue gun

Wrap wreath with garland until full looking.  Use the awl to start holes and randomly stick the colored bulbs into the hole using the hot glue to secure them.  Continue until you like the looks of it and that is it!

This is one of those things that really does look cuter in person but you can get the idea.

It has the look of the vintage tinsel trees and is suitable for hanging in the door because it won't fade.  I want to try a second one with a smaller size garland so the bulbs aren't so "hidden".

That really turned out nice. Love the colorful
bulbs against the shiny tinsel.
