Fairy Twinkle Wreath

By:

Transform an old wreath form into something sparkly and fun for the holidays!  This Fairy Twinkle Wreath is made with brightly colored tinsel and embellished with vintage aluminum bulb reflectors.  This DIY Christmas wreath will instantly brighten up your holiday decor and give your home a classic vintage look that's perfect for the holiday season.

Fairy Twinkle Wreath

Materials:

  • Wreath Form
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Tinsel Garland
  • Aluminum Bulb Reflectors
  • Small Christmas Tree Ornaments

 

Instructions:

  1. To get started on your version, grab some vintage or new tinsel garland in any color you like.  Depending on the size of your wreath form, you might need several strands of it.  Put a dab of hot glue on one end to tack it down, then start winding it around your wreath form.  You can either ball it up or cut it in half to make it easier to wind around the wreath.

  2. Obviously, you will keep going until your wreath form is covered.  Occasionally, I put a dab of hot glue here and there to keep the tinsel secure.
     
  3. To make the reflector embellishments, I looked for a couple little tree ornaments that coordinated with the reflectors and hot glued them into the reflectors.  Using more hot glue on the back is important to keep them secure, and so the glue isn't visible from the front.  Actually, I decided the little ornaments below were too small, and ended up using them in a different way on the wreath.

  4. The bulb reflector flowers can be hot glued into place carefully after you decide where you want them.
     
  5. I made a loop of picture hanging wire which I threaded through the top of the wreath so I could hang it on a nail.  You might want to add a ribbon or something decorative instead.
     
  6. I clustered my bulb reflector flowers in one area on my wreath.  You might want to spread them out evenly around the wreath, or cover your entire wreath with them!
