Easy Winter Wreath

I love a pretty wreath on my front door.  Unfortunately, the Christmas wreath I have has seen better days and I haven't quite decided what to do with it yet.  I don't know if I should try to revive it one more time (it has been revived several times) or just wait until clearance sales and look for something new.  So in the meantime, I decided to create a wreath that I could use all winter long.  This way I don't have to change my wreath out after Christmas and I have more time to find exactly what I want.  I bought my supplies at local craft stores, but I have included Amazon links to similar items just in case you don't live near craft stores.

1 Roll of Turquoise Tulle
1 Roll of White Tulle
1 Roll of Sparkly White Tulle

Hot Glue
Hot Glue Gun
Scissors

Directions:
1.  Cut each color of tulle into approximately 6-inch pieces.  So the pieces will be 6" wide and 6" long.
2.  In the second ring of the form from the center, I tied on my turquoise glitter tulle.  I did a single tie and pulled it tight.  I filled each section as full as I wanted it to make it extra fluffy.
3.  In the third ring of the wreath form, I tied on regular white tulle.
4.  In the outside ring of the form, I alternated my white glitter tulle with the turquoise glitter tulle.  
5.  After I got the pieces of tulle tied on, I went back and looked for spots that needed to be fuller and added more in those spots.  I also trimmed up any long spots on my wreath.

6.  I heated up my hot glue gun and glued on the teal mini ornaments on the inside center ring of the wreath form.  I didn't have a specific pattern I used, I just glued them on in an order I thought looked good.  I alternated their position and how they pointed.

7.  I hot glued the white snowflakes around the teal ornaments at random.

I really love how it turned out and I love that I can use it all winter long,  After Christmas when the decorations go on clearance I might pick up another pack of the teal ornaments and add more, but I have not quite decided on that for sure or not yet.  Let me know if you make a wreath like this.  I would love to see how it turns out.
