How to Make a Gorgeous Gold Holiday Wreath

Strike gold this holiday season with a simple and elegant DIY Christmas wreath. You can make it for less than $20!

diy-holiday-wreathThis year we’re challenging you to abandon the traditional Christmas wreath and create one that is both modern-looking and easy to make. If you choose to accept, prepare yourself for ogling and ongoing recognition as a DIY goddess.

What you’ll need:
• Gold thumbtacks
• A foam wreath form
• Ribbon

To make: Simply cover a foam wreath form in thumbtacks, attaching in rings around the form, slightly overlapping each additional row. Hang with a piece of ribbon.

You’ll need about 1,600 thumbtacks for a 12-inch wreath (check dollar stores for the best value). Work on this project while you watch your favourite Christmas movies and the time will fly by. And if your end point doesn’t match up perfectly, you can simply hide it with the ribbon.

The funny thing is is that does not contain even a bit of gold on it, and in fact it is made from gold thumb tacks, so it is not expensive to make this wreath by any means. Basically it entails putting dozens and dozens of thumb tacks onto a foam wreath, and then adorning the whole thing with a ribbon so that is easy to hang once you are finished. It’s simple yet elegant wreath that is sure to spruce up your door. […]

    Is anyone having a problem with tacks falling out? Did you prep the foam wreath?
