I love wreaths! I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to them. I thought it was high time I dive in and make one. I was inspired by two wreaths I saw on two different blogs. One is from The Happier Homemaker and the other one is from Learning, Creating, Living.
I knew that I wanted to use a foam wreath and I knew my colors were going to be red and gold. I picked up the bow and all the bulbs at the Dollar Store in a variety of sizes. I can't make a bow to save my life. I think I need to take a class on how to make them.
Originally I hadn't planned on using anything around the wreath. Thankfully I held the bow up to the wreath before I started. After seeing all the white peek through, I made a quick trip to Michael's to pick up some burlap. I'm so glad I found some that had a gold sparkly thread running through it.
I started by glueing the bulbs around the inside center.
Then I just randomly glued all different sizes all around.
I bought quite a few bulbs not knowing how many it would take to cover a 16-inch wreath. Because I didn't cover the whole wreath I have plenty left to make at least one more wreath, and possibly two.
