We are half way through our 12 days of Christmas Crafts. It’s been a blast so far, bringing y’all a new Christmas craft every day! You can look back to Day 3 of Christmas Crafts to see how to make the lighted garland I used for this project. While I was taking pictures of the garland I formed it in a circle and realized that it would make a super cute wreath. So that’s what we are doing for day 6!! We are going to turn the lighted garland into a “country” “rustic” inspired wreath! You can watch the full live video tutorial here.
So here is what you need to start.
The lighted garland you made on day 3. (I made the garland for this wreath with a set of battery operated lights.)
18 inch wire wreath frame
Floral Wire, or something to secure the wreath to the frame. I used pipe cleaners.
Some type of embellishment or decorations for the wreath if you want to add to it!
First I took the garland and positioned it around my wire wreath frame. I attached the garland to the frame at every cross point with my pipe cleaners. I wouldn’t reccomend using very much hot glue for this project because you don’t want to melt your light cord. Also during this step make sure your lights are facing outward so that they aren’t hidden by the material.
Once your garland is attached you can start adding the different things you want to use to decorate it. I used a pine cone garland, added some extra pine cones here and there, and the bells in the center of the wreath. I got all of the extras at the Dollar General for next to nothing.
Finally, I made a GIANT bow for the top of the wreath. Everything’s bigger in Texas right? Including wreath bows!! I made this wreath for my Mama and she was more than happy with the outcome!
If y’all make one send us a picture!!! We’d love to see it!!
Happy Crafting ~ Lizzy
