Fairy Twinkle Wreath


(5 Votes)


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.

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



  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!

What a wonderful idea! This reminds me of my childhood with the use of the garland, and having some of this that has good areas and worn areas, this can give new life to decorations if didn't want to part with! I had some really old plastic reflectors in the shape of flowers and they would work great! I might glue some old 7watt Christmas light bulbs on there too, or even some old little bells I have! This is such a pretty and clever idea.... I love it!

What a cute and attractive reminds me of both Christmas and spring, which is a comforting combo (weird but true).

This is very cute, very easy and very inexpensive. I am old enough to remember the Christmas lights shaped like candle flames that came with reflectors. If you can't find them I did see paper cupcake liners in foil and in pretty colors. If I make this I will add a small string of bTtery operated lights too.

Reminds me of the 70's. Which of course were tacky.

This is very attractive, I like that it is not over decorated. I hope I can find some reflectors. - Can you believe I just donated a bunch of reflectors because they don't fit my new LED lights!!! grrr. I had second thoughts but went ahead anyway. Now I will have to look for more or try to make some - I have coloured foil wrap...:)
