I was browsing through the H&M Christmas catalogue recently when I noticed a beautiful large wreath with twinkly lights hanging from the wall in one of the shots. I instantly had the idea to make this myself using a hula hoop. 

Things you need
  • Christmas tunes to get you in the mood (get Michael Buble on) 
  • Hula Hoop
  • Battery fairy lights
  • Foliage 
  • Brown paper
  • Sellotape
  • Wire
  • Scissors 
  • Pliers 
  • Ribbon & Bows to decorate

Trying to find a hula hoop in a shop was impossible at this time of year (apparently they only come out in the summer) but thanks to good old Amazon I managed to order THIS one.

Next on the list of things I needed were lights (which I picked up in Tesco) and green foliage which I went foraging for in the woods and successfully brought a large bag home with me.
I started off by cutting strips of brown paper and wrapping it around the hula hoop securing it with sellotape.
Once I had covered the whole hula hoop in paper the fun could begin. I carefully selected the greenery and attached it to the hula hoop using some wire that we had kicking around in the garage.
Once I was happy with how the greenery was looking I carefully wrapped the battery lights all around and secured the battery pack to the back of the wreath using cable ties so that it was hidden when attached to the wall. The only thing left to do was to attach the ribbon and baubles and voila. A simple wreath that was incredibly fun to create (especially when you have Christmas songs playing in the background)
