Tulle Christmas Wreath - It's so FLUFFY!!!

**Link party can be found below!**

Gosh, I just Love Christmas time! I must say that I am a little sad this year though. Since the hubby and I are buying our first home, there is really no point to drag out every last Christmas decoration just to pack it up again in a few weeks. But, I did decide to pull out a few things and make a new Christmas wreath! I just couldn't wait another whole year to decorate!

My Christmas Tulle Wreath!
Want to make your own? It's easy!

1. Green small foam floral wreath
2. Green, red & white tulle - 1 and 1/2 yards each
3. Gold ribbon
4. Christmas wreath picks
5. Christmas ornament
6. Hot glue

  • To start your Christmas tulle wreath, you will need to cut your tulle into strips. Have someone help you by holding the tulle, it makes it way easier to cut! Double the tulle and cut into long strips.
  • Cut each strip four more times so that you will have four equal strips. Each tulle tie is four tulle strips stacked and then tied around the foam wreath.
  • Create your own pattern and begin to tie your tulle strips until you complete the wreath. I added in gold ribbon for some texture and pops of gold.
  • Once you have used all of your tulle, add on your Christmas picks by hot gluing them to the tulle. I found mine in the Christmas isle at Hobby Lobby, your options are endless!
  • When you are satisfied with your pick placement, glue on your ornament. I also found this at Hobby Lobby, love that store! If you find it difficult to glue your ornament to the picks, wrap a left over piece of tulle around the picks (where you are going to glue the ornament), tie it on the back side of the wreath and then glue the ornament to the tulle. I found this to be the best way to get the ornament to stay!

Pretty easy right? I will admit that it is very time consuming, but so worth it! Here are a few more shots of my finished product. Enjoy!
