I can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner! Here’s a fun and inexpensive DIY to make your own colorful and sparkly holiday wreath!
Store-bought wreaths are so expensive! And I never find one where I love every single thing about it so it never feels like it’s worth the cost. That’s why this year, I wanted to make my own wreath, and it had to be colorful and it had to be sparkly!!
I found this fantastic mess of sparkles and texture at At Home (formerly Garden Ridge) for $19.99. What a crazy store!
At Home also had bulbs in all sorts of sizes, colors and textures. I chose orange, turquoise, red and green all sparkly, shiny and a little matte too. Total cost for bulbs was $10.00.
First I simply placed the bulbs on the wreath to make sure my vision would work.
It seemed a little plain and needed something to tie it all together so I grabbed this ornament off the tree (thanks Mom)! Just what it needed!
Then I started with the hot glue! I think I used 3 sticks of glue, and I think I may have an antique hot glue gun!
Can you see all the glue on that bulb? I didn’t even burn myself!
Oh so pretty. I used red tulle to hang the ornament in the middle.
I love how it turned out and that I was able to incorporate the colors orange and turquoise in my Christmas decor!
I tried to clean up all the glitter but I think I will be finding it for years to come. Good thing I believe the world needs more glitter!
