What To Do:

  1. Start by tucking one end of the tinsel underneath the metal latch of the embroidery hoop to hold it in place – you can always dab a little glue on it to keep it in place if you like
  2. Wrap the tinsel around the hoop, making sure that you don’t leave any big gaps – you don’t want it to look sparse! Thicker tinsel works much better because it’s fuller, shinier and gets the job done a little bit quicker too
    Note: if you run out of tinsel, just tie on another piece and keep a-wrappin’!
  3. When you’ve covered the hoop completely with as much tinsel as you like, simply tie the loose end at the back of the hoop or, once again, glue it down gently to it doesn’t unravel
  4. Now you can add decorations! Loop string through the hoop to attach baubles or glue on little sprigs of holly to create a cosy Christmas effect

All done!

Why not go tinsel wreath crazy and make them for your entire home?

Even better, you can get the kids involved and let them make their own wreaths out of their favourite colours.
