Happy Monday lovelies! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and is off to a great start this Thanksgiving week. I only have a 3-day work week this week, so I’m super excited to get to have a little break and spend time with family and friends for the Thanksgiving holidays.
I know a lot of people are going to be decorating for Christmas soon after the Thanksgiving holiday (if you haven’t already!) so I wanted to share an idea for a DIY Christmas decoration! Buying a Christmas wreath can be so dang expensive, so I decided to see if I could make one that is pretty, festive and affordable.
This Christmas wreath is SO easy to make and I was able to get everything from the Dollar Tree on my lunch break last week! I spent $14 total for all of the materials I used and just used hot glue to attach everything together. I’ve seen other wreaths like that go for $50-$60, so I was pretty pleased with the way this one turned out!
Here were the materials I used:
- 8 Tubes of Red and Champagne-Colored Ornaments Medium Ornaments (4 Red/4 Champagne)
- 1 Package of Mini Red Ornaments
- 4 Poinsettia Flowers (I bought 2 flower stems, each had 2 flowers on it)
- 4 Gold Glitter Berry Stems (I bought 1 stalk that had 4 berry bunches on it)
- 4 Mini Pinecones (I bought 1 stalk that had 4 pinecones on it)
- 1 Floral Wreath Wire Frame
Here are the steps I used:
Step 1: Start by laying out the wire frame and placing the medium-size ornaments around the frame on the outer and inner edges. (I placed them in an alternating color/texture pattern around the frame.)
Step 2: After you have them placed around in the correct order, go around and hot glue the ornaments together. (Make sure the “tops” of the ornament are inserted into the wire frame.)
Step 3: Place medium-size ornaments in between the two rows of ornaments you just glued together (see above) with the tops of the ornaments pointing down into the frame.
Step 4: Start hot-gluing the row of ornaments to the other rows.
Step 5: Add in the mini red ornaments to any spots where you see “holes” in the wreath to fill in.
Step 6: Lastly, add 4 poinsettias around the wreath and hot glue. Add a pinecone and a berry stem by the poinsettia and hot glue as well.
That’s it friends! It’s a super simple way to make an affordable Christmas wreath and for $14, you really can’t beat it! I hope you guys have a chance to try it out for yourselves, and if you do, tag me so I can see and share you as well! Thanks for reading friends! Xx.
