Holiday Wreath

Recently I saw some craft tubing at the craft store. I had never come across craft tubing before and thought it looked it interesting.  I decided to pick some up (in red) and see what ideas I could come it for it. I grabbed a foam wreath form and some miniature Christmas ornaments and decided I would make a wreath. How exactly, I wasn’t sure yet.Wreath (5)

At first I thought I would wrap the tubing around the wreath, but I didn’t like how it looked. I thought I needed some white to go with it and on my next trip out picked up a package of white tubing.  On this trip the cashier asked me what the tubing was supposed to be used for. I told her that I had no idea!

Now my plan was to wrap the red and white alternately around the wreath, but I still wasn’t happy with it. Finally I decided the tubing would make fun bows:

Now I had something!  I wrapped the wreath in red mesh that I had left from another project and glue the bows on one half and I was on my way to a pretty nice wreath!
