Happy December! I can’t believe its almost the end of the year! This year I’ve been more in the Christmas spirit and wanting to make a more traditional wreath for my door. Last year, I did a candy cane wreath and the only problem I had with that is that it rained and melted some of my candy canes and attracted ants! Not this year!
I LOVE IT SO SO MUCH. :) This is how I started:
I got 4 things from the trusty 99cents store: 12 feet of roping, two holiday-looking sticks and that glittery snowflake made of bells.
I unrolled the roping to make it into a bigger wreath, using my wreath form as a guide.
Then I figured out the placement of the decorations and since I didn’t have any dark yarn or twine to attach them to the wreath, I MacGyvered “yarn” out of black thread:
The sticks were a bit long so I bent them back (I couldn’t cut them off since my scissors couldn’t cut through the surprisingly sturdy wire!)
Everything is held on by my black thread-yarn, which worked surprisingly well! I tied the snowflake onto the red ribbon like so:
Now for some pictures!
Here’s the wreath in the evening:
Wreath supplies: $4 from the 99cents store
Ribbon & thread: Already had
This was by far the easiest and cheapest wreath I’ve ever made! SO much fun and I made sure that I could take it apart and reuse the material for next year!
