DIY Tinsel Wreath

This was inspired by Rachel from Smile & Wave and the tinsel flower bauble wreath she made this year. I found this bag of gold vintage tinsel that had seen better days at the thrift store, decided to pick it up and make a cute little wreath. There was a ton of it and a lot of it was pretty worn but since there was so much to work with I was able to cut off all of the bad stuff and work with the nice shiny stuff.

I used a lucky charms cereal box for my base, cut open the box and cut out a wreath shape base to wrap my tinsel around. I used hot glue as I wrapped it up to keep it in place and tied a pretty blue ribbon on top.


{our stockings are so wrinkly it's driving me nuts}

Did you see my DIY Santa Voodoo Doll? I'm very proud of him.

Very cute! And it sounds so easy. I never would have thought to use a cereal box for the wreath shape but that is brilliant! And much cheaper than those freaking Styrofoam ones.

It turned out to be very good, you did an amazing job there!

Yes Mother I could probably iron them but that would be a lot of work on my part so it will probable never get done.

Miss Lego--Thank you so much!

I love that your mantel decor changes with the holidays. It always looks so awesome!

Ours is basically a catch-all and always cluttered.
