One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is getting my craft one! Typically I stress out during the holidays and this year I tried to nip that in the bud by doing all of my holiday shopping right after Thanksgiving and then decorating the house the first week of December. Now that all the big stuff is done I actually have time to enjoy the twinkling Christmas lights and bake cookies, and do little craft project like a DIY Bow-tiful Wreath!
My inspiration came from this gold bow wreath. I literally grasped when I saw it. I wanted it so badly, but it was $99 (now on sale for $79) and I knew I could easily DIY instead and save my money.
Here is what you will need:
-Gift Bows – variety of sizes. You can pick these up at a lot of stores at this time, but I just ordered on Amazon Prime for ease. I ordered 120 bows, but had a good amount left over.
-Wreath base- you could go with foam or straw. Straw was cheaper so I just went with it.
-Ribbon for hanging
Step 1: Adhere your ribbon for hanging. I simply looped mine thru the wreath and made sure that I had a long enough piece that could go over the door frame. Check out my easy way to hang a wreath here.
Step 2: Get your glue on! Use your glue gun to adhere the bows into place. There is really no rhyme or reason here. I just made sure to mix up the colors and sizes. For the most part I left the sticky adhesive they had on the bow and just glued directly on to it. Other times I ripped it off if it was interfering with me getting into a tight spot.
In order to have it hang nicely on the wall make sure you leave the back without bows.
That’s it! Super simple!
It’s a project even your kids could handle to help with if you use a low heat glue gun.
So, go forth and pick up the easy supplies and get your craft one! Imagine all of the possibilities with the ribbon you pick for hanging and the color of the bows you decide to use!
