I started this Christmas bulb wreath at a craft night with some friends and I like how it turned out. Was it easy? Yes. Was it time consuming? Not really. Was mostly everything at the dollar store? Yes. Did I end up having enough bulbs? No way. Seriously I had to go out and get 4 times the amount I originally had. I do like the finished project.
One foam wreath (mine was 14")
Hot glue gun
Different size bulbs (mine were all from the dollar store and they ranged from the 7 pack size to the 15 pack size) I needed many more bulbs than I thought. Maybe close to 10 packs of bulbs, but I wasn't counting.
2) Pull the ends off the bulbs.
3) Hot glue the bulbs on starting with the biggest. You can position them either like this,
4) Or like this. It didn't really matter for me so I did both.
5) Keep glueing them on until the entire thing is full. Many of the little ones you will be glueing on top of other bulbs. They all don't directly touch the wreath.
