Can I have a wreath in every room? Because I love them and I love to make them.
I had some scraps of pipe insulator tubes (from cutting them to the length I wanted for our Pinterest wreath project) and thought I’d make a quick little wreath.
The tutorials I read on this project all said that they are hard to form into a circle. I twisted the foam (you can see from the plastic on the left by my thumb) and it kept it in place pretty well.
I also found these olive vase fillers at Target for $1.48 and figured a wreath for less than $2 would be pretty awesome!
I knew I didn’t have enough olives to cover the whole form so I wrapped it in ribbon I had leftover from Christmas. (You can see in this picture that the wreath wanted to not be a circle. I just worked it and twisted it until it went back into the shape I wanted.)
And then I just started hot gluing the olives all the way around. I trimmed off all the stems and sorted them by color because I’m a little OCD.
I knew it would be hard to put a hanger on over the olives so I planned to leave a gap. I also wanted to make sure I liked how it looked so periodically I’d hang it up and step back to see if I had any holes.
Then I started filling in the gaps with the leaves
until I liked how it looked.
Now it’s hanging in my kitchen
with all my other random decorations.
This one was easy peasy!
The pipe insulation was about$.20 per foot and I used less than 2 feet-$.40
Total for this project: $1.86. Sweet!
