Hey friends, so since purchasing our house I have been on the hunt for a cute and simple wreath to hang on our front door. However, have any of you ever priced those out before while home goods shopping? Those babies are NOT cheap. That was when I decided that I was going to take on the craft of creating my own! DIY wreath making is a lot easier than it sounds and there are a million different versions of wreaths you can create. I stuck with one that was more on the natural side, using this woodsy twig one. Everything was purchased at my local craft store, Hobby Lobby (aka my happy place).
Here is what I made mine with and I lucked out because everything was 40%-50% off on sale. 😀
- Twig, premade wreath. Any size depending on your door, or wall space. Mine was regularly $7.99, for $4.79.
- Floral wire $2.47.
- Door hanger $1.79.
- Burlap ribbon $3.59
- 2 small stem flower bunches $1.79 each.
- Sunflower bunch $3.99
- 2 Blue flower bunches $2.99 each.
Folks that is $23.20! That includes the ribbon to hang with AND the door hook. BEAT THAT! I am a bargain maniac, I don’t like overpaying for things that don’t need to be expensive.
Here is what my wreath looked like before I attached anything.
This project does require wire cutters, borrowed from the husband’s tool bag. 🙂
Here is my door hook, wire, and burlap. I initially purchased those items in the Christmas department because all Christmas items were 40% off.
I chose two stems of these small white flowers and two of these blue ones. I wanted one big statement flower and of course grabbed sunflowers.
Making a wreath is very simple, I don’t have step by step photos because its not necessary. You lay your wreath down, start trimming long stems of your flowers and then trim the tips as short as you need them to be once you choose where on your wreath you are placing them. Then cut about a 2 inch piece of wire to secure the stem of the flower to the wreath. Keep adding flowers until you are satisfied with the way it looks. I used all the flowers that I purchased.
So there you have it, my take on wreaths! Hope this DIY post brought you some of your very own wreath dreams. 🙂
until next time,
stay cute, stay sweet.
