There is nothing much better than a DIY that costs next to nothing, except maybe a DIY that costs nothing. With Holidays galore and Thanksgiving in only a few weeks it’s time to dec the house, inside and out. Themed wreaths have grown in popularity over the last few years and are particularly easy to make yourself. Thanks to Dollar Tree (I’m a traitor to Hobby Lobby this week) it is more simple than ever to create a low budget wreath for any occasion. This week’s DIY consists of only a few items and costs a frugal $6 to make.
Want to give it a try? Just a few simple tools, a handful of Dollar Store purchases and 30 minutes and you can have your very own handmade Thanksgiving wreath.
Step 1: Gather your supplies. Green garden foam circle thing (what are those called?!), 2 9ft. burlap ribbon spools, 3 fall berry/ flower/ leaf bouquets, hot glue gun and ribbon.
Step 2: Using the burlap ribbon, tightly wrap your green foam circle thing. Wrapping it tightly is key, otherwise the burlap won’t cover the entire foam circle. Hot glue gun the ends down so the burlap doesn’t unravel
Step 3: Place your flowers, leaves and feathers to see where you want them attached. Once you have come up with a design, take each piece and hot glue it onto the wreath. Larger pieces such as bigger leaves and feathers are best on the bottom, so glue those on first.
Never feel like you have to use every single piece that you have. It’s easy to overdue it, but simplicity is best.
Step 4: Hang it by a ribbon by attaching it to the top or hang it by the wreath itself for a cleaner visual.
Wreaths are a cute yet simple way to add a lot of character to a space. Hang it on your door, wall, or in your entry way to greet visitors with holiday spirit.
