Rhinestone & Tulle Wreath

Love is in the air!  Valentine's Day is almost here and this is the perfect wreath to glitz up your home, especially if red and white aren't in your color scheme.  I was inspired by a wreath I saw here and you can easily make your own too!

What you will need:
10 inch green Styrofoam wreath
10-12 yards of ivory tulle
white or cream fabric to cover the wreath
hot glue gun and glue
2 yards of might want to get a little extra just in case
The rhinestones I used were regularly priced at $17 per yard but you can get them cheaper online

Step 1: Cover your green Styrofoam wreath in a white or cream material so the green doesn't show through. When I did this wreath, the best thing I could find at 2 a.m. was Aluminum foil tape and it did the trick.

Step 2: Cut the tulle into 2 1/2 x 26 inch strips.

Step 3: Tie the tulle strips in double knots around the wreath.  I doubled up the strips and tied two at a time to give it extra fullness and make it go faster.

Keep tying...and tying...and tying!

Repeat until it is full and fluffy! 

Step 4: Add your glitz! Using hot glue, glue the rhinestones to cover the knots. 

Add the second layer of rhinestones, or a third!  :)

Step 5: Tie a knot in one of the strips of tulle to hang it and now the world is a cuter place all because of you!

Have fun!
