Bubble Wreath

Bubble Wreath

I love bubbles, especially in my glass (champagne any one?)! This bubble wreath gives me just the right amount of pop (ha!) and also glamour for the holiday season. Here's how to make your own. 

Supplies: 

  • A Styrofoam Wreath Form (11 inches)  
  • Shimmery Pearl Paint ( I used this brand: Violet Pearl, White Pearl and Blue Ice Pearl) 
  • Paintbrushes
  • Ribbon of your choice
  • Clear Plastic Ornaments of various sizes 
  • Paintbrushes
  • Glue Gun 

First, I placed my pearly paints on a paper plate and then i swirled them around to give me that perfect unicorn shimmer. 

I then grabbed my paintbrush and went to work on about 20 - 25 ornaments (I forgot to count them). The look is a slight shimmer, and they look like soap bubbles!

While those painted ornaments dried, I  grabbed my ribbon and wrapped it around the wreath form. Pull it tight before wrapping it again. Be sure to secure the ends with a glue gun dot. 

It should look like this when you're finished wrapping the wreath form. You could leave it like this if you want! It's so sparkly and pretty! But, I wanted to be a little extra.

I used plastic ornaments so the wreath won't be super heavy on the door. First, I placed four large ornaments across from each other. I secured them with my glue gun.

Next, I grabbed my smaller painted and unpainted ornaments and secured those with a glue gun.

Then, I just filled in the gaps, gluing ornaments until I had a bubble-filled wreath. It should look something like this. 

Grab some command strips and hang your wreath on your door! 

Lessons Learned: 

  • Place your ornaments before gluing them. I pulled up several ornaments several times because I didn't like the placement. Save yourself some time and have a plan. 
  • Make it your own! You can paint the ornaments any color of your choice. 
  • Beware of glue gun strings. Looking back I may have used E6000 glue instead of a glue gun. The strings from the glue gun made things a little messy. 

Peace!
