Instructions:

  • Purchase your materials and have everything all set to go. Tiffany purchased everything in this DIY at Michael’s Craft Store.
  • Take the yarn and start to cover the styrofoam wreath as many times it will take to cover the entire thing. Note: the bigger yarn you use, the quicker this process will go. Props to Tiffany for using small yarn!
  • Apply hot glue gun to the end of the yarn once you’re all done and adhere it to the finished piece.
  • Cut a long piece of yarn and glue it to the back of the wreath. Tiffany did hers in a zig-zag shape. Just keep in mind that the PostalPix Instagram prints will be hanging off of this string.
  • Add decorative pieces to the wreath to make it your own! Wooden letters, flowers, pins, etc. will all work perfectly.
  • Attach the mini clothespins to the yarn piece and hang your PostalPix prints.
  • Hang the wreath if you’d like or have it placed against a wall. That’s it!
