The fixture below using two 3′ wreath frames, wire, black wired Christmas lights, a stripped extension cord and chains. You don’t have to make your own, but it’s always nice to be creative. You can also use a hula hoop to have perfect circle. If you have spare old icicle lights this would be perfect also.
Make your fixture stand out during the holiday. Be festive.. here's some ideas.
These are so simple to make!! You just wrap the yarn around your styrofoam wreath just like you would think.
In order to make these flowers, all you do is cut different sized circles out of your felt material.
Once you have your circles, you’ll start from the outside with your scissors and start cutting a spiral towards the center of the circle. Then you’ll start wrapping the spiral around itself starting with the center. You’ll just use a little hot glue on your way around to make it secure.
For the leaves, I just drew 4 leave shapes on my green felt and cut them out.
Then hot glue everything onto the yarn wrapped wreath! Easy Peasy!
Ornaments & Garland
Start off your stairway garland with an elegant arrangement at the banister. Gather a few large pine branches. Hold the branches together at the base and wrap with floral wire. Use short lengths of wire to attach ornaments to the boughs, creating a cascade effect. Tie several long lengths of ribbons to the wire holding the branches together. Use a final length of wire to attach the arrangement to your banister.
Transform foam tree forms into colorful holiday decorations with just felt and hot glue. Layer shades of the same color to create a modern ombre effect or use a solid color for a more traditional look.
Colorful Christmas turn miscellaneous ornaments into a dazzling Christmas wreath. Spray-paint a foam wreath form with silver paint and let dry. Then, using hot glue, secure the largest ball ornaments to the inside and outside circles of the form, and fill in the rest of the wreath with smaller ornaments. Fill in bare spots with bunched up lengths of bead garland.

Wool X-mas Tree
Xmas tree is made of WOOL and fluorescent tape. You can easily make it anywhere in your home as long as you have an empty wall somewhere. The decorations i bought on my travels to Nepal (wooden figures) and China (flower + pearl garland) and India (horse). The felt snowflakes are from Ikea and the crochet potholders from a restaurant shop.
6 small paper doilies
1 bamboo stick
Then, cut all of your ribbon up into 5" pieces.
Just keep going and going, remembering to slow down to fit the last few ribbons of a row in each time. Now...I actually ran out of ribbons on this particular tree, so I have to go pick up more to finish it. Ugh. (The measurements and amounts in the list above are accurate - I just didn't follow my own directions on this one.)
When you finish your ribbons all the way to the top, you want to use another cut of ribbon (you can use one you've already cut, but I think it really only needs to be 4" long or so) to finish it so it looks nice and polished. (TIP: I lightly coated both the ribbon, and around the top of the cone with glue. Then I wrapped the ribbon around the top, pulling tighter at the bottom of the ribbon - because you're working with the slant of the cone. Then I wrapped the ribbon with a rubber band until it was almost entirely dry. You don't want to keep it wrapped until it's completely dry because you risk having to cut your rubber band off because it's become glued to the ribbon - and if it's still a little tacky when you take the band off, you have a chance to smooth out any wrinkles the rubber band may have made.)
A super easy, fun little project to try out during the holidays! You can expect to get a little messy - a bit gluey on your fingers. :) But it's a lot of fun. And I bet you could whip one of these up a lot quicker using hot glue and it would probably be just fine.
