HOLIDAY DIY: marshmallow wreath

DIY marshmallow wreathDon’t think because DIY HOLIDAY WEEK is over that it’s the end of holiday DIY’s on here. Nope, that was just a kickstart to your crafting season. Today I have to share this super fun Christmas DIY Marshmallow Wreath that I made on the weekend. How fresh, simple and deliciously fun is this marshmallow wreath?! Even if you live somewhere that doesn’t have snow it doesn’t mean that you can’t have a fluffy, white ‘snow’ covered wreath. Keep reading to see how easy it is to make this sweet piece.

WHAT YOU NEED:
– 3 large bags (6 regular size) of large marshmallows
– tons of toothpicks
– foam wreath base
– christmas ribbon
– white yarn/felt/material (optional)

DIY marshmallow wreath

This one is simple folks. I reused an old wreath form so to give it a totally fresh start I covered in white yarn that I had. You don’t have to do this but I think even if you’re using a new foam base, the yarn/felt/material looks better than the foam peeking through in between the marshmallows.

Stick your toothpick into the marshmellow (don’t mind the painty nails) and then start pinning away.

Don’t get lazy, make sure the marshmallows are nice and close to each other and going in different directions. It will make the wreath look nice and full.

    This is such a great idea! I love wreaths that are made out of non-traditional materials. xoxo

      Yes, buy an extra bag for snacking ;) I don’t even love marshmallows and I couldn’t resist a few.

    I love this idea! Any tips on what to do to prevent the ants from eating it if you live somewhere that isn’t cold? Might make it this weekend!

      oh, good question. I think this may be more of an indoor wreath. I read that vinegar repels them as well as mint. So maybe soak the marshmallows in vinegar first? Or add some mint to your wreath design?

    Now that is adorable! I have half a mind to go make one now, but I know that in my house the marshmallows would slowly disappear until I had only a yarn covered wreath form left!

      Thanks! If it helps, they were pretty hard by the next day and soon rock hard…so not very appetizing if you can keep it safe for a day or two.

    Very cute so what did you end up doing to store it? Acrylic spray?

      ha! it’s still on my door! But I didn’t spray it with anything, it’s hard as a rock. I’m just going to put it in a plastic bag and store it in my condo storage unit and hope for the best.
