This light up wreath was made for my young daughter and inspired by the movie “Frozen”, which has been all the rage with the under 7 set for ages! Crafting supplies can get expensive, so I’m always looking for inexpensive substitutes, especially when a trip to the craft store is out of the way. These colorful mesh shower sponges reminded me of floral mesh, so I decided to use them to make a pretty, light up winter wreath for my daughter’s door.
- Mesh Shower Sponge
- Foam snowflakes
- Battery operated lights
Step one: Cut the string that is at the center of the sponge to unravel the mesh tube. Stretch out the sponge to make a long tube of mesh.
Step two: Cut approximately 2 feet of wire. Wrap the light strand around the wire. The light strand I used was also a pliable wire so it made it easy to wrap the two together.
Step three: Slide the wire into the mesh tube. I put a small bulb ornament on the end of the wire to make it easier to slide through without catching the mesh.
Step four: Twist the ends of the wire together and shape into a circle.
Step five: Hot glue the foam snowflakes onto the mesh and hang an ornament from the center of the wreath if desired.
I tucked the battery compartment into the wreath holder hook before hanging the wreath on top to hide it. You can tape or glue the compartment in place. Photos really don’t do this wreath justice! It gives such a beautiful glow when it is lit at night. Everyone in my home gasped when I turned it on! This winter wreath will be a beautiful door display when we transition from Christmas decor to general winter themed decor. Have fun crafting and creating!
