Dollar Tree DIY Gold Thumbtack Wreath

2 Materials
While looking for something additional to add to the photo gallery above my daughter's bed I came up with the idea to make a gold thumbtack wreath. Her room has touches of gold because I'm obsessed with gold and I thought this would be just more gold to add to the mix!
I started with a styrofoam wreath and gold thumbtacks from Dollar Tree.
To get this fish scale design I made sure to overlap the thumbtacks as I worked around the wreath
The wreath gets really heavy! I used about 2000 thumbtacks which was about 7 boxes in total
Totally thrilled with the outcome. More photos on my blog

Suggested materials:

  • Styrofoam wreath   (Dollar Tree)
  • Gold thumbtacks   (Dollar Tree)
