- 24” and 16” Make It: Fun® Foam Wreath Rings
- Kraft paper twist or paper (optional)
- 3 nine-foot yard lengths of faux evergreen garland (Michael’s)
- Design It: ® Simple Style® Wired Burlap Ribbon – Two 7 yard rolls each of Natural, Green and Cream
- Sparkle green mesh (A.C. Moore)
- 4 floral stems with gold glitter balls or your choice (Michael’s)
- 24 gauge floral wire
- Size 20 or 24 steel dressmaker straight pins
- Tape measure, pencil, knife from Make It Fun® Foam Cutting Tools set or other knife to cut foam
- 3-4” Wide wired ribbon of your choice for tree top bow
- 50 lb. monofilament fishing line, for hanging
On both the 24” and 16” foam rings, measure and mark a line on each side of the circles that divides each ring into equal semi-circles. Using the Foam Cutting Tool or knife, cut through the marks, cutting each ring into two semi-circles. Keep one semi-circle from the 24” ring for another project! Trim a small amount from each end of one 16” semi-circle so that it is slightly smaller.
You can wrap each semi-circle in paper if you’d like, though this step is totally optional. I wrapped the foam in kraft paper twist to simulate a wood look.
Wrap each foam semi-circle tightly with green faux garland; press the garland flat on the back of the semi-circle.
Using one-yard lengths of Design It: ® Simple Style® Wired Burlap Ribbon, make 3 loop half-bows and secure tightly with floral wire. Make a total of 30 bows, ten in each ribbon color. Using approximately a 4” piece of green mesh, tie into a simple bow. Make 15 mesh bows. Separate clusters of gold glitter balls from stems, leaving a length of wire at the end of each cluster. I used a total of 22 clusters.
Using straight pins, attach burlap half-bows randomly across each garland covered foam ring. Simply move the garland and pin right into the foam. Attach the mesh bows with straight pins.
Add the glittered ball clusters. Have fun with a design that you like! Here’s how the large bottom “tree” semi-circle looks completed.
It was totally easy to hang on the wall! Decide how far apart you want each to be and place small nails in the wall. Tie a length of monofilament fishing line around the center of each finished foam semi-circle and create a loop in the back. I used 50 lb. monofilament line. Hang each foam semi-circle by the loop, with the largest at the bottom. Make an 8-loop bow and use a straight pin to attach to the wall at the very top of the tree!
Here’s how it looks on my dining room wall. What do you think? I absolutely love it and because it’s in 3 separate pieces, it will be easy to pack and store for next year.
