I have been making wreaths for as long as I can remember. I only make them when I feel crafty, so that the time I spend on it is enjoyable and not a burden. As I always tell you, working on a DIY wreath is easy. Furthermore, it doesn’t cost a fortune to decorate your homes this fall. The materials that I used are extremely affordable and are under $12 dollars, (you may have some of these materials at home already). Friends, time to impress anyone knocking on your front door. It is so fun and relaxing to create something out of nothing.
Material that You Will Need ($11.85)
Preparation time: 15 minutes
1 -14” grapevine or straw wreath ($2.85)
6 decorative season pumpkins from the Dollar Store ($6.00)
4 large pine cones (from your yard, your neighbor or the nearest park (0) Paint (.50)
6 green leaves (can be silk or from your garden (0)
Glue gun to glue the materials to the wreath (.50)
4-5 yards or golden ribbon to wrap around the wreath. ($2.00)
Wrap the wreath with golden ribbon. Use ½ yard at the top of the wreath to hang it.
Glue the pumpkins in any given order you like to the wreath with the glue gun.
Set the pine cones (in natural color or spray paint in gold) anywhere you like them or use my design. Glue them directly to the wreath.
Glue the leaves in any open spots or follow my design.
You are done, it only takes few minutes.
HACK: Make another one and give it to a family member or a friend.
