A quick and super simple way to make your own wreath form
If you have been looking at all those lovely DIY Christmas wreaths on Pinterest, then you know the first thing you need to get started is a wreath form.

But I’ve got good news. I’ve figured out a quick and super simple way to make your own wreath form; and what’s even better—this project will hardly cost you anything.
