Today I want to share a great DIY craft with you by Randi from the blog Dukes and Duchesses; a bright, sparkly white wreath inspired by the beauty that comes with snow and winter.

Randi combined textured yarns such as Luxe Fur, Vanna’s Glamour and Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter Eyelash, and added a few snowflake accessories to make this sohphisticated DIY wreath.

    Is that green flower foam or styrafoam?

  • melodie

    Tracy. I think it is Styrofoam I do not think you would use green flower foam that is just for flower pots. hope that helps

  • Beth Watkins

    The designer of this wreath used a green floral wreath base (which she first covered with white fabric) and wrapped it with the yarn. But you could use nearly any wreath shape as your base material… styrofoam, wire, or even cardboard will work. In some cases you may need the wreath to be very flat to fit between say a storm door and entry door, in which case flat styrofoam or cardboard works best.

    Beth, y would you use green floral? y not Styrafoam one time we used green floral for something and it did not hold together, I use Styrafoam and then I cut out fabricate and then you use fabricate glue and a pencil and poked a hole and then you will leave fabricate in to the Styrafoam, sents it is valentines you can use red pink white and whatever makes you happy. I am working on my wreath I making them hope that helps you,
