This easy Santa wreath is the perfect wreath for everyone, however, it’s more suitable for the chronically ill. Having several chronic illnesses, my hands become numb after moving my hands for a long period of time. I also have extreme fatigue that severely limits me. This is a craft to get you into the Christmas spirit that won’t over exhaust you. It didn’t make my hands numb, and it only took me an hour to achieve my little Santa! Remember, we have gone/still going through the worst, we still need to have fun too. It will also give you a sense of accomplishment and gives you something to be proud of when you complete it. I got all of my supplies at Michael’s Craft store. So, let’s get started!
- 2 rolls of 6 inch white tulle
- 12 inch Styrofoam ring
- Hot glue gun
- A Santa hat
- Ribbon to hang wreath
- Cut tulle strips about arm length. It’s easier to cut a lot of strips before you tie them to the ring. Fold strip in half.
- Put the loop portion under the ring. Grab both ends, so the ends are touching around the ring. Pull the loose end through the loop and pull tightly.
- Repeat first two steps until the tulle is covering half of the ring.
- Turn each tulle knot so they are facing outside of the ring and fluff the tulle to make it look like a beard.
- Hot glue the ribbon, hanger style, so it will hang the wreath.
- Hot glue the hat on the portion of the ring where there is no tulle. *TIP* make sure the space of the tulle and the hat covers all white parts so you don’t see the white of the Styrofoam.
- Hang up your wreath and be proud of yourself!
I hope you enjoy this Christmas craft. It’s a great and easy way to swiftly bring some holiday cheer to your house! This craft is perfect for anyone, however, it’s suitable for a chronically ill person. Remember, even though we are hurting and feeling miserable it’s crucial to still have fun. Keep fighting, stay strong, and stay positive.❤
