Pipe Cleaner Wreath Looks Awesome In Every Color

Pipe Cleaner Wreath Looks Awesome In Every Color post thumbnail image

I have to admit, I am not that big on Valentine’s decor—or at least haven’t been in the past. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit. Ha. But I do love pink and red (and also glitter!) and I found myself wanting to add a little something to my mantle for the month. If nothing else, just to feel a bit festive. And that’s what inspired me to make this DIY pipe cleaner wreath. You could absolutely make this for any season or in any color—I just decided to use up my stash of red, pinks, and glitter pipe cleaners. Oh yes, I have a pipe cleaner stash.

This is one of those projects you can work on while you watch TV or listen to a podcast. Recently, I’ve been rewatching every season of Bob’s Burgers. I love that show and hadn’t watched the first few seasons in a very long time (some of them I swear I hadn’t even seen before). This is a great place to stay for a couple of days. Don’t get me wrong, I love a very involved craft project too. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable.

Beg:

-wire wreath base
-pipe cleaners (cut into thirds)
-scissors

Depending on how big your wire wreath base is will change how many pipe cleaners you end up needing. You can also use a variety of colors/shades, or keep it more uniform; it’s up to you.

Step One: Cut the pipe cleaners into thirds. Then bend them into a ‘U’ shape.

Step Two: Twist the ‘U’ around the wire frame. Repeat until you’ve filled the entire wreath.

Step Three: You can hang the frame as is, or use ribbon or dress or yarn to hang it from a coat or doorframe.

If you need to clean the pipe, you may need to trim some of the pipe cleaner parts if you see any that are sticking out way further than others. But that’s it-super simple. This 8″ diameter wreath probably took me about three hours (or six Bob’s Burgers episodes) to complete. Thanks for letting me share! And happy Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day to you, friends. I hope you find ways to love yourself and those around you. xo. Emma
