As you may have seen in my Tree Reveal post, we’ve changed the colour scheme of the tree this year, thus leaving us with a gazillion baubles that don’t match the theme. Mum and I decided to put these to good use and knock up a few bauble wreaths.
Here’s how we made them.
You will need;
Hot Glue Gun
Something circular, preferably a polystyrene ring, but since this was a last minute idea and we were snowed in the house… we used the edge of a microwave mashed potato packet. Classy, I know.
I started by cutting the rim of the mashed potato packet off and wrapping ribbon around it, securing it with hot glue.
I then chose my colour scheme, and went with a rose gold/copper kinda style.
We started by doing the main circle of baubles and glued them in place.
We were then able to add baubles in a more ‘mismatched’ way and make it look a bit quirky rather than super neat.
Mum used to make bows for a living, and so is AMAZING at making any kind of bow, but we went for this classic style to glue on.
If you want, you could add a hood of ribbon at the back to hang it on your door, of you could use it as a table centerpiece for your Christmas dinner if you don’t want to hang it up.
We’re that happy with how they came out, we’re actually tempted to buy some polystyrene hoops and make some more professional looking ones to sell on Etsy or Depop next year!
