We’ve been seeing a number of what I like to call circle or bubble wreaths lately. You can do all kinds of different designs with these simple materials too! For example, check out this beautiful PVC pipe Christmas tree via Martha Stewart.
You likely don’t need to see step-by-step instructions for this project as it’s pretty well known. So I’m just going to briefly go over how I made ours. I loved this project, and I hope if some of you haven’t thought of trying this yourself yet, maybe this will inspire you to!
As far as supplies go, I bought some 5 foot PVC pipe with diameters ranging from 1/2″ to 2.5″. I used a hot glue gun with extra strength glue sticks (for stronger hold) to construct the wreath. I used a chop saw to cut the pieces, but you can use a PVC pipe saw if you don’t have access to power tools. A Sharpie and measuring tape came in handy for measuring and marking lengths (as they do).
Arranging the pieces to look symmetrical and balanced took a bit of time. It was like putting together an open-ended puzzle, which was both challenging and fun! After I had the pieces arranged, it was just a matter of going through and gluing each piece together one by one.
Once the wreath was constructed, I spray painted a couple coats of gold and called it a day. This wreath took an afternoon to make, and cost about 20 bucks. If you dig the look, give it a try this season!
