DIY Wreath With Hair Elastics

4 years ago by in Art, DIY, handmade

I am trying to come up with some brightly colored projects for the new house. Evey has some very strong opinions about her new room (help me now) and I know she will love this little wreath hanging in her room.

The first thing you need is headband elastics. These are sold in many stores in packs for just a dollar or two.

You will also need a wreath form. I used wire as it’s what I had on hand. Foam, or even cut cardboard would work.

Since I did a two tone affect, I started out by spacing wrapped elastics around the wreath form. I used a got glue gun to glue the strands and prevent them from fraying.

I went around the entire wreath alternating bright colors.

It’s going to look sloppy on the back. No worries, the front will be all business, just like a fine mullet.

Next I took black elastics and cut each strand into two pieces, and then filled in the empty spots.

Wrap the secondary color as flat as you can, and continue to hot glue it into place.

When it’s all done use another elastic to create a bow to hang the wreath with.

Evey loves how it turned out, and is very much looking forward to hanging it in her new room when we move!

Of course, knowing Evey, opinions can easily change overnight.

In fact, just this morning she said she finally decided on a paint color for her new room: Black.

So. Not. Happening.
