It’s been a while since I’ve created a wreath, so I wanted to whip up something for the holiday season. Here’s the catch: I really didn’t feel like spending hours wrapping something with yarn or gluing on peppermints. Basically, I wanted little to no work at all. Bit of a dilemma, huh?
Well, I’m pleased to let you know I made a festive ‘wreath’ in about 20 minutes and it didn’t cost me a thing!
First, you need to collect your sticks. You’ll need two that are approximately the same length (the sides of the ‘tree’), one that’s a bit shorter (the bottom of the ‘tree’), and one small one to act as the tree trunk. I tried to choose relatively straight sticks with little-to-no side branches.
Next, I used a dab of hot glue at all the joints where two sticks met.
Then I wrapped each joint with some lime green yarn I already had on hand.
Once all the joints were wrapped, I randomly wrapped some more sections on the sides and bottom. And dat’s it, ladies and gents! Hang it on your door and go!
What I love about this (besides that it was fast and free), is that it’s not too precious. Does that make sense? I feel like it can really hold up to being outside in winter weather and no matter how much it snows/rains/wind blows, it will be fine!
Have a good weekend, everyone!
