DIY: Hip to Be Square Wreath

I like square stuff.  I’m not sure why, I just do!  Check it out…

Our table is square…

Our dishes are square.  You got me! I know the smaller white dishes are rectangles, but in my little world, I categorize them as square…my kindergarten teacher would be so disappointed.

If I had my dream home, it would be foursquare style:

Seriously,  you should Google “foursquare architecture images”.  You will need a rag to wipe the drool off of your face.

Well, it is Christmas time and I thought that I would share an insanely easy  DIY holiday wreath with you.

Call it rectangle, if you want.  I made this baby so many years ago.  Yeah, maybe time to change out the bow.  Anyway, I am going to show you how to make a square wreath.

You just need three things:  a frame without glass, cheap-o greenery garland (mine was 7 yards long), and a glue gun with glue sticks.  You will spend more time waiting for the glue gun to heat up than you will spend making this wreath.   Once it does, put a little dab of glue on the back of the frame ( I like to start in a corner) and then start wrapping.

Don’t wrap too tightly because you will want to manipulate it around until the whole thing is uniformly covered.  Then hot glue the end to the back.  Ta-dah!

You can add a bow and fru-fru if you want:

I kind of like mine a bit more plain :

And this is where it stays…for now.

What do you think?  Is it hip to be square?
