Fall Wreath 2.0



Here is another version I made of a fall wreath using a wire hanger.

First you bend the hanger into a circle shape. It takes a lot of working with the hanger to get it into a circle. Don't worry if it's not perfect, the tulle will cover it up.


I started with green tulle. Cut it short, about 8" long and tied it in knots around the wreath. I spread the tails out on each side so the wreath would fill up on the outside and inside.


This also creates an almost braided look where the knots are. Continue until you have filled up the wreath with the green.


Then I added sheer orange ribbon. I love the contrast of ribbon and tulle.


I added a few pieces of black glitter tulle to give it some more dimension.


Then to finish it off I added a black metal "P" (our last name) that I picked up from Hobby Lobby on clearance. Here's the finished look:

    1. Thank you! You have to really work with the hanger to get it in a circle shape but if you put plenty of tulle on it you cant see if there are imperfections

  5. Hi Candice, I just found your blog - an answer to prayer. I have been wanting to make one of these for Christmas, yes starting early for once? I wanted to know how long to cut the strips of fabric so thank you and I will also include some tulle. Blessings

  8. What a gorgeous wreath! I've been mulling over how to make a Halloween wreath since I don't have easy access to anywhere selling those styrofoam bases most people use. I have a tonne of wire coat hangers though so this post has been very inspiring, thanks!

    1. I use the hangers or a pool noodle. It saves so much money and you don't even see it anyway!
