Snowflake Christmas Wreath

I recently made some tutu's for my girls for our Christmas photoshoot. They looked adorable in them and the pictures turned out great. But then I got home and stared at these two tutu's that took quite a bit of time to make. I didn't want to toss them and I knew they wouldn't wear them again. I decided to disassemble the tutu's...which wasn't hard since there was no sewing involved in making them, just tying strips of tulle to an elastic band...so I removed each strand of tulle and each snowflake and make a wreath for our door.



I took a metal clothes hanger and stretched it into a circle. Then I tied the tulle to the hanger until it was completely covered (took 6 yards of tulle).


Then with a hot glue gun, I glued the plastic glitter snowflake ornaments around the center of the wreath.



Done! I bet this would be so cute in Christmas colors. The ornaments were from Walmart...they have LOTS of colors to choose from.

did you do something different with the tulle? It looks feathery on the ends.Beautiful
