Gorgeous Christmas Bow Wreath

3 Materials
45 Minutes

It's amazing that you can create such a gorgeous wreath out of a single inexpensive material! With just a few packages of traditional Christmas present bows and 45 minutes of your time you can whip up a stunning wreath to display in your home over the holidays! If you like this simple project, don't miss my other fun Christmas crafts , most you can do in under 1 hour for under $20!

Supplies: Present bows come in all different colors, sizes, and styles but I love these matte ones I found a few years ago. I haven't been able to find the exact same bows since, but there are so many options at the craft stores, dollar stores, and even the grocery store, that you are bound to find bows you love! I used a straw wreath form for this project because that is what I had on hand at the time, but a foam wreath form would work just as well!

Step 1: Start adding bows to your wreath in a random pattern with a dab of hot glue on the back side of each. You can try peeling off the backing and just sticking the bows to the wreath form if you want, but some the bows may not have strong enough adhesive to stick permanently, so hot glue is recommended for a quick and permanent hold.

Step 2: Continue working your way around the wreath. Don't forget to add bows to the sides and position them close together to create a beautiful full wreath without any gaps!

Hang with a pretty ribbon and enjoy!

      Hello, Well, I finally finished my wreath after picking up an inexpensive hot glue gun. It did the trick ! I don't know if the photos will do it justice, but I'm very pleased with the way it turned out.
