Tulle Christmas Wreath

Sometimes I makes crafts that are so incredibly easy that I wonder why I am even posting a tutorial about it. This is one of those crafts.

And because I don't want to insult your intelligence, I'm not going to give you step-by-step photo instructions. I'll give you the basics though!

I found a wire wreath in the floral section at Hobby Lobby. They have them in about 4 or 5 different sizes. This is what it looks like.

I cut 6(ish) inch strips of kelly green tulle and tied them on the wreath... over and over and over. I used the "baby wipes lid" method for cutting my tulle quickly. (Only wrap about 1/4 of the roll at a time. If you wrap too much, it'll be too thick for your scissors.)

I'd like to note that I left the center hoop blank. When I first started, I was knotting tulle on all four hoops but it just looked too full. I removed the tulle from the center hoop and it looked a million times better.

This craft uses A LOT of tulle. I used a couple partial rolls I had laying around from other crafts, but I think this was probably about four or five rolls of tulle. You can choose to use more or less tulle if you'd like to change up the fluffiness!

The little red holly berries are made out of super small red tulle puffs. I cut a long strand of tulle to use for the strand to tie around the middle, and then tied that on to the hoops of the wreath. (If that makes no sense to you, visit the tulle puff tutorial post and it should help!) You could always glue it into the wreath, but that's too much trouble for me.

I added a couple long loops of darker green tulle around the berries. It's not necessary but we thought the addition of leaves made the puffs look more like berries and less like ornaments.

Once the wreath was done, we decided that if we had used lime tulle, it would have been very Dr. Seuss/Grinch-like. That would be super fun in a classroom! Maybe add a Santa hat to the top and a heart to the bottom? Yes. Do that!

This sweet little wreath is now hanging in our office. (Or outside our office if the weather is nice enough!)
