Wreath Tutorial

ok…here it is.  This little thing could NOT be any easier!!  There’s so nothing to it and the possibilities are ENDLESS!!!

Here is what you need: a wreath form, tissue paper squares, a hot glue gun with glue sticks and a pen or pencil.  I did NOT use this green wreath the first time.  But I found this 10 inch one at the Dollar Tree for $1!!  You could wrap it in ribbon or fabric to hide the green.  You can also buy large packs of tissue paper from the Dollar Tree as well!!
This is the actual styrofoam wreath I used.  It’s 14 inches round and flat.  I got it at Hobby Lobby for $4.50….cheaper if you use a coupon.
Cut your tissue paper into squares.  I did not measure….hate to do that.  But I think they ended up being about 6 inches square.  Plus, you can see that they are not all the exact same size.
I had to get Ruthie’s help here so I could take pictures.  Stick a pen or pencil in the middle of the tissue paper.
And gather it up in your hand.  She squeezes a little tighter than I would like…but you get the point.  I don’t want it to be  crinkled, I like for it all to be smooth but once again, it really is not a big deal.
Get your glue gun ready and put a little dot on the end of your tissue paper.
And stick it onto your wreath holding it for just a second so the glue can set.
Ta-Da!!  That’s all there is to it.  You just repeat this process until your wreath is as full as you like it.
And this is the finished product!
If you make your own tissue paper wreaths I’d LOVE to see them and share them!!  Send them to me via email hope.sewell1@gmail.com
By the way, our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been touched by the devastating storms this week.
