DIY Ruffle Deco Mesh Snowman Wreath 2017
Well it's that time of the year again.
Is it? Really?
School just started and it's not even September. But you know what? It's Christmas at Hobby Lobby. Gotta love a store where Christmas is up at least six months a year. Inspiration pounded into me every corner of every isle. I couldn't help myself. I had to make a wreath. And of course, it was going to be a snowman wreath. It was just going to be a tiny bit different. I thought I'd try a ruffle wreath. I had been going for curly style. This was my first time making this ruffle style and I really like it. And it was super easy. I hope you think so too.
So many ideas for wreath making.
Let's have fun.
1 large spool of red deco
1 10 inch spool of striped red and white deco
16 inch wire frame
1 large spool of wired Christmas ribbon
and any bling and baubles you want
I spent $64 on supplies from Hobby Lobby. All Christmas décor was 40% off. Check out my video of the DIY for more price detail.
Next is the DIY
Cut the deco into 20 inch pieces. Your foot can become a useful tool. No need to measure accurately... unless you want.
You will need 16 pieces of the solid red and 16 pieces of the striped.
Fold the deco into ruffles.
Again, your foot can become quite a friend especially while folding the red deco .
Since this deco is large, take the cut piece and fold it in half. Then fold into ruffle shape.
Gather both folded decos and place them in the twist tie, twisting a couple of times. Each twist tie will have one red and one striped piece.
Start on the outside and work your way in.
Cut the ribbon in about 12 inch strips. You will need one for each twist tie. Place a ribbon in a twist tie and twist a couple of time. Then cut the ribbon to the desired length.
Next add the Baubles and bling.
It's really hard to take pics of actually putting the bling and baubles on the wreath.
For twigs and sticks place the stick end through the wreath where the frame is doubled and wrap it around the frame. The twigs are actually quite bendable and can be shaped to any position.
For the snowman, I took extra ribbon and wrapped it around the neck and then attached it to the frame of the wreath by tying the ribbon.
For the Christmas ornaments or large white balls, I took the fishing wire and knotted it around the twist ties and then proceeded to twist the twist ties.
Next take a long piece of ribbon and attach it to the back of the wreath frame to hang over your front door if needed.
