Festive Fall #DIY Wreath!

I tried to avoid the drive to DECORATE ALL THE THINGS, really I did.  Then I went to the dollar store and all hope was lost and my crafty side went crazy. 



So like I said this all started with a simple trip to our local dollar store and ended at the craft store.  I went to the dollar store to get some cheap strands of fall leaves to put on top of our kitchen cupboards because my kitchen just looks lame and I thought it needed a little something to make it feel a bit warmer.  I found a wire wreath and those fall leaf strands.  Then I had a brilliant idea to make a wreath and decided that a quick stop at the craft store would be a great idea...$6.00 later and it actually wasn't terrible!  I made this wreath for a total of $8.00!  YUP EIGHT DOLLARS!  I was pretty excited about that since the ones at the craft store were between $35 and $50!  Ain't nobody got cash for that. 

 Supplies:

  • Wire wreath form
  • Cheap dollar store ribbon (to glue leaves too)
  • Leaf garland
  • Your favorite burlap WIRED ribbon
  • Letters
  • Glue and glue gun

 Directions:

  • Wrap the cheap dollar store ribbon around the wire
  • Cut a piece of the burlap ribbon and string across the middle and attach with glue.
  • Attach the letters to the burlap ribbon
  • Make a bow out of the ribbon (I literally just winged this and folded and glued and repeat!)
  • Cut the garland apart and strategically glue the leaves around the wreath to hide the wire and fill in the holes.
  • Attach the bow with glue
  • Hang and smile!



I fell in love with my wreath immediately and have received so many compliments on it!  I am pretty proud of my first DIY wreath and am excited to make my Halloween and Thanksgiving ones!!!  Look for those tutorials soon.  My goal is to keep them each under $10.00 which I feel is a steal.
