Santa Tulle Wreath

This was seen on Pinterest.  I back tracked and found the original post with instructions at Baby Rabies. Her instructions are very clear and it took me less than 2 hours to complete the project.

You'll need:

Santa hat---I found mine at the Dollar Tree
12" foam wreath
50 yards of 6" wide white tulle
glue gun
ribbon for hanger
cardboard to wrap tulle around to cut to the proper length

You'll cut the cardboard into a 15" square and wrap the tulle around it.  Then take your scissors and cut it on both edges so you'll have 15" strips.  This is the fastest way to handle the tulle!

Position your Santa hat on the wreath and mark the area of the wreath you'll want to cover with tulle for his beard.  Remove the hat so it won't be in the way as you work with the tulle.

Tie the 15" strips of tulle on the wreath with a simple knot.

When the beard is nice and full, crumple up a piece of tissue paper to stuff inside the hat and using hot glue, attach the hat onto the wreath.

Cut a short piece of ribbon, fold it in half and either tack it with a few stitches or use the hot glue to make a hanger on the back of the hat, and you're done!
