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