Day 31: Rudy the Red Nosed Wreath

Day 31: Wow, I’ve past the 30-day mark for my 50 DIY Days! I can’t believe it…. Just 24 more DIY’s after this! Hee!!! Well, today I’m sharing a cute wreath for you Christmas junkies. It’s Rudy the Red Nosed Wreath! I was sad to retire my Polka Dot Wreath, but I needed something more…. Merry? Hmm. Anywho, here’s how I did it:

Supplies:

- Silver, or whatever color you’d like, garland. I used two packages (I’m not sure how long, since the packages were from an estate sale).

- Wreath

2 – 4 branches (any branches that resemble antlers)

- One red glass ornament

- 12 inches of wire

- Hot glue gun + glue sticks

- Masking Tape

Directions:

-  First things first, let’s attach the antlers (branches). Using your masking tape, wrap the tape around the wreath and branch on each side to make it look like antlers on the side of a reindeer head.

- With antlers attached, you can move on to wrapping the tinsel around the wreath. This is super easy and fast. Start it off my glueing the start of the tinsel with a bit of hot glue… wrap it around, and glue the end. Repeat with however much tinsel you need.

- When your tinsel is glued on, let’s add the nose! Thread the bit of wire through the ornament loop, find a good spot to make a “nose” on Rudy, and wrap the wire around the wreath. As you wrap you can hide the wire under the tinsel, to keep it hidden.

- Hang it up, you’re done! Yay!

I kid you not, this DIY took a total of 45 minutes for me. That includes the time I took to stop and take photos. Very simple. Cheap to make as well. Happy Thursday to all of you!
