If you still have some decorating to do consider making this inexpensive and easy Dollar Store DIY Bulb Wreath. I have been running behind this holiday season and I have actually been frustrated that I am ha ha! We have our Christmas Tree all decorated (we did that nice and early) but the house and my outdoors is not complete. I think I was about to meltdown yesterday. I can not believe that my decorating is not done. It has NEVER been this late in the season for us. Last evening I decided it was time to get busy finishing up all the DIY Crafts that my daughter and I had started to work on. For Years I have wanted one of those fancy bulb wreaths I have seen in the Pottery Barn catalogs. I just never liked the price tags on them, ha ha!
Dollar Store DIY Bulb Wreath
This year while shopping at the Dollar Store I bought a bunch of the plastic bulb ornaments. I thought these plastic ornaments would be great to attempt making my own bulb wreath. This project was more simple that I had thought. Just grab a wreath frame, about 75-100 bulbs and your handy glue gun. I had a Pool Noodle left over from a previous Dollar Store Shopping trip you could use any round foam, etc for your wreath frame. I then wrapped my frame with some red party streamers to cover the color of my frame. After prepping your frame its just a matter of gluing your bulbs on, then gluing and gluing and gluing. I just chose a quick and easy pattern working with the different type bulbs I had on hand.
Wreath Frame (I used a Pool Noodle taped together)
75-100 Christmas Bulbs (more or less depending on your frame size)
Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Twine or String for your hanging
Glue all your bulbs working your way from side to side and size to size to keep symmetry. You can leave the bulb holders on or remove.
Knot your twine or string in a not making a loop and glue to back of wreath
After gluing on all my bulbs, I grabbed a small piece of twine and hot glued it on tho the back. I am super excited that I finished this DIY Dollar Store Wreath that was needing to be finished. It looks great on my side door where I had always pictured it. If you too love those fancy and expensive Pottery Barn Bulb Wreaths you too can just make your own for around $8.
