Here is a photo of a large wreath I made for our back porch. I used a big hula hoop then attached branches from our old artificial Christmas tree. I went around one direction using the branches from the bottom 2 sections of the tree and alternated them.

I attached them with duck tape I tore into 1 inch by 7 inch wide strips. I then went back around the other direction with the branches from the upper parts of the tree to cover the duck tape and wire prongs. I poofed it out as I went and then added the bow.

I do plan to get a much larger bow when the after Christmas sales hit, but I think it turned out nice for basically free:) well other then replacing my kids' hoola hoop!

Great idea on using your kid's hula hoop. Also, others might keep this project in mind, next year, when checking out those close-out Summer sales, buy those hula hoops when they're dirt cheap. Another note on this same idea, could also wrap or decorate the hula hoop in silver & pink garland tinsel and decorate with chicks, decorative plastic eggs & bunnies, with a big pink, lavender or yellow bow for Easter, or use your imagination for other holidays.

I did almost the same thing... One day I was junking and was given this huge wreath form for free. I brought it home, and that fall I used our old christmas tree to make us a wreath. I just wired the branches on, starting with the largest lower ones.


It is so much bigger and fuller than anything I've seen at a store. I got a string of white lights and a gigantic red bow at the "after-Christmas sale" that year. So far it has lasted 8 years with no problems.

That's really cool. It would be difficult to find such a large wreath in the retail market at any price. Thanks for sharing.

I love your wreath and the bow is just right. Keep up the good work.
