Have a couple bows left over after the wrapping-extravaganza? Have a whole bunch ripped off of presents in the aftermath? Craft a smaller, point-ier wreath as a counterpoint to a larger piece…as your final Christmas handmade project. I got all my materials at the Dollar Tree, so it only cost me $5 to make – but it’s also a great way to recycle those bows from presents if you don’t want to re-use them next year. Here’s how:
*2 packages of small stick-on pointed bows
*one larger stick-on bow
*1 small wreath base (styrofoam)
*glue gun & gluesticks
1. Cut a length of ribbon long enough to hang the wreath. Wrap it around the top of the wreath base and secure with glue.
2. Glue the small present bows onto the base, filling the base up completely and staggering them to cover any gaps.
3. Glue the largest bow top center onto the red ribbon.
4. Tie the ribbon to a wreath-hanger or hook to display.
Happy DIY’ing…and Merry Christmas! Hope it is wonderful!
