I finally broke down and went to the craft store to find something to make a wreath out of for my front door. I had seen another tulle wreath on one of the crafty blogs I followed and once I saw that tulle was just over $1/yd I decided to go for it. The whole wreath was about $10 because I already had the huge spool of ribbon. All I purchased was tulle and the wreath form. Do you want to make one yourself? Here's how I did it...
|You need 2 yards of each color tulle and one metal wreath form.|
|Cut the tulle into 2" by 9" strips|
|Take 2 strips at a time of varying colors and fold in half. |
I did red/yellow, yellow/orange, then orange/red.
|Put the loop around the wire then back through itself.|
|Pull it tight. Repeat all the way around on the first two rows.|
|3 hours later you have the wreath covered in tulle.|
|Take a long strip of ribbon and put it under the first wire and|
over the second wire. Weave your way through.
|Keep weaving for the whole section.|
|Once you have two sections done, tie the ends in a knot.|
|Use the remaining ribbon to attach to the door!|
|I love the contrast of the brown ribbon.|
|Beautiful! Perfect for any season - just change the colors!|
