You will need a wire circle form to create your wreath. Yes..you could use a coat hanger, but I just didn't have time to unbend/rebend all of those hangers for each of my teachers that were participating. Plus, the size was a bit bigger than our time frame would allow for creating the wreath. I picked up the wire from Wal-Mart for about $4..and had a ton left over!
Once again..because of time....I precut all the fabric(though some teachers brought there own to add into the mix). This took a large chunk of my time....but ya do what ya gotta do! ha ha I purchased everything on sale...and Wal-Mart had tulle for 97cents a yard. I had blue, white, and several types of tulle(some sparkly!!). The teacher were encouraged to mix and match the different colors & textures.
You knot the fabric around the wreath. One knot will do. The fabric needs to be twisted here and there a bit as you place it on the wire so that the fabric is FLUFFY! Packing it tight helps make it extra fluffy!!
You can get the do-dads of your choosing to your wreath. I found wonderful small shatterproof balls, snowflakes, and jingle bells all 50% off at Hobby Lobby. I encouraged the teachers to bring in their own though to make it more personal.
This was my example for the group. This was done on a regular hanger I bent to a circle..a bit larger than I'd like....live and learn!
This was created by a teacher friend ( and close personal friend) for her daughter. Though honestly...she is pink & sparkly too!!! ha ha
(I forgot to take pictures that night...so I'm going to add more pictures to this post as I can collect them!!!)
