DIY Up-cycled Christmas Bulb Wreath

Up-cycled Christmas Bulb Wreath

So I have seen these all over town and on Pinterest and in the stores and I just had to have one but thought there was no way I was going to pay for them so here you go. I saw this great tut to make one and got super excited! It's at:

Here is what I did:

I didn't have any metal coat hangers so I used just some old wire I had and some I my old Christmas bulbs.

You are going to be so excited at how easy this is, seriously!

Now all you have to do is string them on...

Make a loop...

And hang it.  You can use any bulbs you have on hand, old or new, glass or plastic, whatever you have.

Now here is what I learned from my wreath:

If your wire is too thin it will not hold a nice BIG circle, your wreath will be oblong.

If you try and pack them too tight they will pop off, so be soft!

And if you can't fill it all he way, it's ok, a bow goes a long way.

And that's it, how simple is that, right?

and I am so in love with it, you have no idea, I made 3, just sayin'.
