Vintage Lights Christmas Wreath

We went to an estate sale in very big house. This sale had lots of vintage items and decor. There, I found a box full of vintage Christmas lights on a string.
I just started this project with a bunch of string vintage Christmas lights that I got at an estate sale for $2.00 ea.
First I covered the foam wreath with the ribbon, then I placed all red lights to make the base for the wreath. I used hot glue.
Since all of lights were red, I use spray paint in gold, blue and turquoise to add a little bit of color. It's also a great way to use all your leftover spray paint. For the complete tutorial go to
