Supply List



  • (1) 3’4” length of ¾” PVC-coated aluminum tubing

  • (1) 3’5” length of 1” Tubular Foam Pipe Insulation

  • Roll of holiday-themed decorative burlap ribbon

  • Wooden star

  • (4) pine cones

  • (3) 78” long pieces of burlap ribbon

  • Scissors

  • Utility knife

  • Natural jute twine

  • 2” pearlized sewing pins

  • Hot glue gun + glue sticks

  • Packing tape

  • Small artificial flower stems

  • 16” long piece of artificial pine garland


Instructions

Step 1. 
To create a wreath form, bend the PVC-coated aluminum tubing into a circle and secure the ends with packing tape. Slide the Tubular Foam Pipe Insulation over the form, then twist the foam insulation so that the slit is on the outside of the form.

Step 2.
Cover the wreath form with the burlap ribbon. Begin by securing a section of the ribbon to the foam with two of the pearlized pins and start wrapping the ribbon around the form, overlapping each layer as you go. When you get to the end of each ribbon section, cover the end with a new length of ribbon, secure with pins and continue wrapping. Continue until the wreath form is completely covered.

Step 3.
Place the garland on the wreath and secure the center to the form with jute twine. Wrap it a few times to make sure the garland is secure, then tie the twine and snip off the ends.

Step 4.
Create a bow with the decorative burlap ribbon. Cut 5 pieces of ribbon into 6” lengths; form each length into a loop and secure it to the center of the garland with hot glue. Cover the center of the bow by gluing a small piece of greenery in the middle, then top with the wooden star. Decorate the wreath by using a hot glue gun to secure the pinecones to the garland, then tuck the flower stems into the greenery.

Step 5.
Use the remaining decorative ribbon to create loop to hang the wreath.
