You’ll never believe what this wreath is made from! If you have ever wanted a simple white Christmas wreath, this is the easiest way to make one. With only two items from the pound shop, you can make a stylish simple snow white wreath for decorating your home, wall or door.
It started with a trip to the local pound shop. Where I bought two of these:
White fluffy dusters. Fluffy dusters that I have no intention of dusting with. Making is much more fun than cleaning.
How to make a white fluffy Christmas wreath
After a lot of wiggling and unscrewing I managed to take off the plastic handles. They were glued to a metal spine that goes down the middle of the duster.
Next you have to bend the duster into a semi circular shape. The wire is heavy-duty inside the duster but not too hard to bend. You’ll need some wire to wire the ends together. I used a heavy florists wire.
Wrap the wire around one end of one of the dusters then wrap the wire around the end of the other one, to hold them together. Do the same at the other ends of the dusters, so that you have a whole circle shape.
Tie some deep red ribbon around the wreath in a bow and there you have it! It is the quickest wreath I have ever made and probably the cheapest! But I do like it! I have hung it from a cup hook on my dresser in the kitchen.
Did you know that the circular shape of the wreath symbolises eternal life? There is some holy imagery here with the white of the wreath and the red of the ribbon. I am reminded to meditate on the birth of Jesus and what his death gave us. The washing of our uncleanliness and the blood that it cost. What a gift.
