Introduction: Easy Tutu X-Mas Wreath

This is a really easy wreath you can make in a few minutes, for very little money, and it's pretty cute. 
It's a nice decoration, or you can give it as a present. 


Step 1: You Will Need.

I bought this "roll of decorative scarfing" at the Christmas tree shop, for a dollar a roll. I was thinking of making x-mas tutus for my girls, but they already have a lot of tutus. 

You will need scarfing or tulle. 
Scissors.
Wire
and thin wire or tape. 

I would recommend using a wire coat hanger, but we didn't have any. We did have a huge roll of electrical wire in the basement, so I used that instead. You can use any wire that will hold it's shape. 
Make a circle, and secure the ends with wire or tape. 


Step 2: Start

Cut the tulle and tie it on. I cut it to about a foot long, which turned out to be a little too long. try different lengths and see what you like. 

tie it on, alternate the colors. 


Step 3:

At this point I was running out of tulle, so I made the wire circle smaller, and finished adding what I had left. 

Fluff it up, and see how it looks. 

Step 4: Touch It Up

I decided it was too big, so I trimmed it with the scissors. 

That's all! Hope you like it. 

It would go nicely with my used wrapping paper wreath.

Very nice :) - What kind of material is the "scarfing"? Is it nylon? (Regardless, it looks pretty). Thanks for sharing.

thanks.
i'm not sure what it is. it's probably either nylon, polyester, or rayon. it was kinda slippers and shiny. and it didn't fray very much.

I'm so excited! I have a "candy" theme for Christmas this year and this will be perfect. Thanks for the great tutorial :-)

This is a real plus for using the electrical wire base. You wouldn't have been able to adjust the size as easily with a coat hanger or store bought wreath base.

thanks. we have a crazy house where we don't have wire coat hangers or masking tape, but we do have tons of electrical wire and painter's tape.
