Last April 6, we celebrated Lia’s post-first birthday Ballerina bash. I crafted a handful of ballerina DIYs for this
chaotic momentous event, one of which was a ballerina tutu wreath.
I chanced upon this wooden Halloween wreath in an ukay-ukay in Kamuning for only P20!.
In other parts of the universe (obviously not here, because you could never find a wreath here),
you may find straw ones in crafts and hobby stores.
|Satin lace ribbon (at least 1″ wide) to cover your wreath.
I used about 10, 12 yards for the 8-inch wreath I have.
|A spool of 6″ pink tulle.I only used up only about 20, 25 yards for my wreath. If you have a bigger wreath, you’ll probably gonna need more.
Bought this from an online seller on Facebook, Mom & Me Bows, for P9/yard.

The other piece got lost during our Corregidor trip, so I decided to put the other one to use.
|A feathered hair accessory.
|A figurine with a butterfly wing.
Now, onto the meaty portion: The hows.
1. I removed all Trick or Treat designs from the wreath, so what’s left is the base.
2. I also readied the ornaments for the wreath by carefully detaching them from the source.
|This is the centerpiece of that feathered hair accessory.
Then, I detached the wings from the figurine and used a glue gun to attach the wing on the centerpiece.
3. Cover the wreath with a satin lace. Begin by attaching one end with a glue gun, then simply work your way around till the entire wreath is covered with lace.
6. Once you’ve covered the entire wreath, you would want to push the knots closely together to make it look fluffier. Add more strips and knots as necessary.
