Tulle Wreath New Year Decor Supplies Needed:
- Darice 6″ Beveled Wood Numbers.
- Light Blue Craft Paint.
- Darice Foam Brush.
- Darice Extra Fine Glitter – Luminous.
- Darice 6″ Wide Tulle Netting – (2) 25-yard Rolls in Sparkle White.
- Darice 6″ Wide Tulle Netting – (2) 25-yard Rolls in Sparkle Gold.
- Darice 16″ Metal Wreath Form.
- 6″ Square of Cardboard.
- Darice Gold Glitter Mesh Ribbon.
- Darice Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue.
To begin your New Year decor wreath, paint the surface of each number with the craft paint using the foam brush. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle generously with the glitter to coat each one evenly. Shake off any excess glitter, and set numbers aside to dry completely.
Starting at one end of one of the white rolls of tulle, wrap the tulle around the square cardboard piece until you reach the end of the roll. Using scissors, cut along the top and bottom folds along the cardboard piece to create 6″ squares of tulle. Repeat with the remaining white tulle roll.
To add the tulle to the New Year decor wreath, take one piece and gather it together. Fold the piece in half, as shown.
The wreath form is divided into 8 even sections. Working in one of the sections at a time, affix the white tulle pieces to the metal slats within each section using a slip-knot, as shown.
On each of the outermost rings, you will affix 12 pieces per section, and on each of the innermost rings, you will affix 10 pieces per section. Continue affixing the tulle pieces using slip knots until the entire section is filled. When you reach the end of one section, skip over the adjoining section and begin affixing tulle pieces to the next section in a similar fashion.
When you have filled four alternating sections of the wreath with white tulle pieces, repeat the same process using the gold tulle in the remaining open sections of the wreath. When you are finished, fluff and adjust the tulle layers as needed.
Create a bow with the gold mesh ribbon, and affix to the top center of the finished New Year decor wreath with hot glue. Affix the numbers along the lower edge of the wreath using hot glue, overlapping the edges of each number slightly.
Your festive New Year deocr is complete!
