Craft Project: Christmas Wreath #1 - Neon Green Tulle, Greenery & Berries

I've been obsessed with Pinterest lately. At first I was only using it to pin to-do items. Cards I wanted to make. Recipes I wanted to save. Articles for reading later. But then I discovered all the wonderful things that other people had pinned. And my to-do list expanded dramatically. Especially in the area of crafting.

I've rediscovered my love of wreaths. I have several I want to make. And this weekend, I finished the first Christmas wreath.

I started with a wire form and tied strips of tulle around it.


I ran out of tulle halfway around and decided to wear it as a headdress. As you can see in the background, my hubby is not impressed with my spontaneous costume.


I bought more tulle and finished the wreath tonight. I cut apart a garland of greenery and a garland of red berries and hot glued them to the tulle.


The wreath is hanging from a satin ribbon with a bow hot glued to the top. I attached a wire hook to the back of the bow so it can hang from the curtain rod.


I'm very pleased with how it came out.
