For the holidays, I decided to try my hand at a Christmas bulb wreath. I have loved every one that I have seen online, and they look super easy to make! So I gathered supplies that I had picked up last year during after Christmas sales (I got the bulbs super cheap!) and went to town!
DIY Christmas Bulb Wreath
1 wire clothes hanger
lots and lots of Christmas bulbs
glue gun & sticks
wire cutters (and a husband willing to help! haha!)
First, I tried to shape the wire hanger into the shape I wanted for the wreath. This was harder than I had anticipated! I had to buy the wire hangers new because I was unable to find any in our house, or my mom's house, or any of my friends' houses. Those things are hard to come by!!
After shaping the hanger, I started threading the bulbs onto it. I highly recommend using bulbs that are all the same size. I did not and this made it very difficult to get them placed so that the wreath looked full. Anyway, on with it....
I love the colours! This was a little tricky, and next time I would make sure to glue the little top pieces to the bulbs because as I was trying to attach the two ends of the wreath, bulbs kept flying off.
There's the finished product. I have not taken photos of it on the door, but its super cute. Maybe I will do that later, but somehow a few of the bulbs have flown off with the boys in and out slamming the door!
