Over the weekend I tried my hand at creating a DIY Christmas wreath using items I had in my home. I’m sharing what I used along with ideas for recreating this wreath while not spending a lot of money.
What I used for my DIY Christmas wreath:
- Wreath: I got this on clearance a year ago for about $3. While you might not have a wreath lying around, you could get one at a dollar store. Dollar Tree has Crafter’s Square Garland Wreaths with Bows & Decorative Bells for $1 each, or purchase a wreath form (also $1) and a garland ($1) to wrap around it. You could also get a wreath when they go on clearance for next year.
- Bow: If you have gift wrapping ribbon, you can make your own bow, but I had a bow from Dollar Tree that came in a set of two for $1. Dollar Tree also has a larger buffalo check bow for $1.
- Ornaments: I glued old red and gold ornaments onto the wreath, but you could also purchase some from a dollar or thrift store.
- Pinecones: The girls collected pinecones on our walks earlier in the year. I glued several of them onto the wreath.
- Small ornaments/picks: I had tree picks I didn’t use, so I cut them up to place the tiny ornaments around the wreath. If you don’t have extra picks, you can purchase small ornaments from a dollar or thrift store for the same look.
As you can see, if you use what you already have you can create a cute wreath. But supplies are also inexpensive if you don’t have these items. This also assumes you own a hot glue gun (I have had mine for more than 10 years and I’m pretty sure it was about $5 or less.) E6000 glue would also work. (It’s about $4-6.)
Are you doing any Christmas DIYs this year?
