I saw this idea in an old crafting book and have been wanting to try it for years. Well, this was the year. I had a ton of green garland that I got on sale a couple of years ago and found a hula hoop at the dollar store. Making the wreath was so easy, my 3 year old daughter helped... as in, was actually helpful! It will take about 5-6 6 foot garlands depending on the size of your hoop and the thickness of the garland... imagine the possibilities!I added a string of 100 lights, pine cones we found together and a big bow. It opened up the Christmas season for us and really made a statement.
