Yesterday I showed you my white and silver vignette. Here is the white tulle wreath that is hanging right above it.
I made the wreath by wrapping white yarn around the wreath form first. Then I added a bunch of wrapped tulle roses.
I’ll be the first to admit that wreath-making is not my specialty. Either is bow-making. Big sis made the bow for me. But I can twist yards of tulle into roses with the best of them and hot glue them onto a wreath!
I was on the hunt for a frame to put on that wall. I scoured all the local thrift stores until I found one that wasn’t outrageously priced at the Good Will Store. I just popped out the print, gave it a quick coat of white paint and inserted a hook at the top.
Now, how to hang the wreath from the hook. I could have just hung it with a length of tulle, but then the idea hit me. I took three strands of silver beads, looped one end through the other end: instant wreath hanger.
I’m pretty proud of that idea! I’m sure somewhere, someone has already thought of that one, but just let me think I’m the first!
Now I just need to make a wreath for the front door!
I link to these great parties:
stunning i love how this wreath turned out and totally love it in the frame great job
Thanks Anj! It took some searching to find that frame. I think the thrift shops have caught on to us DIYers!
This is simply gorgeous!
I’d love for you to come by and link up at our Holiday link party if you can: http://www.urbanejane.com/2013/12/holiday-glam-link-party.html

I just found your blog,Ilove it! I too grew up in the Pittsburgh area( Greensburg),so when I read you were from that area ,I had to snoop around awhile. I have to try your nutroll rcipe & apricot pinwheel cookies. One question, I was reading your post about the wedding cookie table, well you said you made ladylocks. Do you have that recipe posted here? If not ,will you be posting it? I love them! I live in the northeast part of the state ,near the Pocono’s & these people have no idea what ladylocks are! Can you even imagine? Thanks for the great blog, I can tell I’ll be stopping in daily!
Hi Tina! Thanks so much for the kind words. Yes, I grew up in North Huntington, just down the road from Greensburg!
I’m glad you asked about the lady locks. I will have a post with the recipe for lady locks next Friday. I love them too!

The wreath is gorgeous and has me written all over it. I just wish I knew how to make those pretty tulle roses. It is definitely a glam wreath. And, I don’t know what ladylocks arre, but I am awaiting for your post with the recipe. Happy DIYing.
