This weekend I decided I wanted to make my own wreath that I can use year after year. Last year I got a real wreath and it didn't last that long. I went to Michael's and they really had great prices most of the items were half off! This is a simple project that anyone can do! I went with an all silver wreath because our tree is all white and silver. There are many different color schemes you can choose from and it was really fun to make.
Don't go overboard when selecting things to decorate the wreath with, just match up a few similar things and mix and match. Of course I had to buy the silver birds, and I really liked the glittery apples and present. Before inserting things into the wreath be sure to lay things on the wreath to test out where you want to place them.
Here are the items I bought for the wreath:
1. Wreath $1.99
2. Silver Birds $0.60
3. Silver Leaves $0.60
4. Silver Present $0.30
5. Pearl Flowers $0.60
6. Silver Holly $0.30
7. Silver Apple & Drum set $0.30
This wreath does not look like it's $5.00! I highly suggest making your own wreath, it makes it more rewarding to come home from work to see your festive wreath that YOU created. :) It will also most likely be cheaper than buying a store bought wreath.
Next DIY project this week: My boyfriend and I will be making our own ornaments. Stay tuned.....
