Buying a wreath can be pretty pricey. A friend saw my wreath and said, “I paid $49 for one at a craft faire”. She asked that I show her how easy and inexpensive they are to make. The best part is this wreath will last for years (store flat in a trash bag in a plastic storage box).
Starting in November, you will see discount coupons online at your local craft stores (Michaels, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s etc.) I bought all the supplies for up to 40% off. The wreath was originally $9.99, but it was on sale for $4.99.
Things you will need:
- Wreath (about 18 inch round, not too big if you want it to hang on your door)
- Ribbon – choose your favorite (you need 4 yards or more per wreath)
- Pipe cleaners or floral wire – I used green
- Decorative accent – you can buy any holiday accent (I bought holly berries)
Fluff up the wreath to make it look more natural
Make mini bows. Using ribbon, make three loops, cut end and wrap wire around to tighten. You will need at least 6, but you can add more as you like.
Tie the ribbon bows to attach to the wire of the wreath. You want it to be sturdy.
Make a larger ribbon bow using the rest of your ribbon. Attach to the wreath.
Secure the decorative piece to the larger ribbon.
Hang on the door or in your home.
