Would you believe...

That I made a wreath? Would you believe it only cost around $10.00.. I'm figuring it higher rather than lower? Would you believe they sell for upwards of $40.00?
Here is the breakdown... Dollar Tree Noodle, 6 toothpicks, E6000 glue, Duct tape, Ribbon, Geo Mesh, wire, wired ribbon.
Using 6 tooth picks and the E6000 glue put the noodle together into a circle, tape with duct tape to secure. Let it dry. Cover the now Wreath form with ribbon *or not.. it's your choice*, using Geo Mesh of your favorite color combination make loops that fit the size of your form, wrap wire around 5 or 6 times, make another loop and continue wrapping, looping, wrapping until you have the wreath as full as you like. I used 2/3 roll of the large geo mesh and 2/3 of a spool of ribbon. Leave about a 2 or 3 inch space on the form so a bow can fit in nicely. I made my bow using 1.5 inch wide wired ribbon. Fluff the mesh as needed to fill out the form. Hang and enjoy!
