Bowl full of Jelly

Today I made a Christmas wreath for our front door. And I am actually pretty proud. I got the idea from and fell in love with it.
So how to make one of these cute wreaths:)

  • wreath
  • red yarn
  • black fabric for belt
  • fabric or paper for belt buckle
  • white snow or spider web material (optional for beard. mine felt naked without it and luckily i found a leftover fake halloween spider web)
Take your yarn and tightly wrap it around the entire wreath. Hot glue the ends down.
Next measure the width of the wreath plus 2 inches and cut out the black fabric for Santas belt. I did mine 3 inches wide but it's up to you how wide you want your belt.
Cut out of paper or fabric a square for the belt buckle (make sure to cut a small square on the inside as well:)
Now hot glue the belt to the wreath on the ends and glue the buckle to the center of the belt (just place on top)
Here is my daughter modeling the wreath for me. At this point I wanted no beard and a white buckle. Once I saw it on the door it looked like it was lacking so I glued a yellow buckle on over the white one and added the beard. But here is the Before picture:

And here is the after:

Pretty cute huh?

Have a wonderful day!
