I found a great wreath idea on the Midwest Living site last year.
It’s a spring wreath using an umbrella, but it gave me the idea to make a wreath from a stocking.
My wreath is currently hanging out on my fake ficus tree at work, but I’ll take it home when the office closes for Christmas Break.
This was a super easy and inexpensive project. It uses a stocking, faux holly, poinsettas, and sparkly pinecones, plus some gold tinsel filling and a little wooden nutcracker. I purchased all of this stuff at the local dollar store, so the project cost less than $10 to make.
To make one yourself:
- Fill your stocking with tinsel. It will help your stocking keep it’s shape, and can be pulled through the top to help fill out the wreath.
- Next take your holly and place several of the branches. These will be the basic filler for your wreath.
- Take 2 or 3 poinsettias and add them to your stocking.
- Add a couple of glittery pine cones.
- Find a nice little home for your little nutcracker.
- And last, but not least, pull a little of the tinsel up to help fill everything in.
There you have it. No tape, glue, wire, or other tools. Just fill and display.
