.diy holiday wreath.

I'm gonna admit it, I love a good holiday wreath. I never have had a wreath before but I have admired hundreds upon hundreds of them. They truly make me feel more like in the holiday spirit. So this holiday I knew I was going to try and make a wreath of my own for our little home. I searched pintrest for a wreath that was cute and simple to make...more on the simple part and then crossing my fingers it would be cute!  I found one that I loved, a marshmallow wreath!!! (i have always had a love for marshmallows)

This wreath was super simple to make. All you need is: a wreath form, a ribbon, marshmallows, and a hot glue gun.  I glued three sizes of marshmallows to the form. Starting with the JUMBO size in random places, then filled in the form with medium sized, and finished with filling all the little spaces with mini marshmallows. I cut the jumbo size ones in half and placed around the sides of the wreath to insure it was completely covered. After I was done I put it in the fridge for 30 min. to set the marshmallows. I love how the marshmallows give the wreath depth and dimension!

When making the wreath I kept sneaking marshmallows for myself. I think I got a little sick from eating so many! After making my wreath I found another (maybe easier) way to make a marshmallow wreath. All you need to do is put about 100 or so toothpicks in the form and then place the marshmallows on the toothpicks! Finally ending with letting it set in the fridge..ta da done.  Either way takes about 30 min. it all depends on what you want to do.

Now this yummy, pretty wreath sits on our door to welcome in the holiday season. I love this wreath and I think I'm going to keep it up during all winter since it also reminds me of snow. Plus the winter here lasts SOOOOO much longer than the holiday season and I really don't want to take it down. haa haaaa.
