The holidays are around the corner and we all like to beautify our homes with decorations, especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We can create crafts projects by using materials from our gardens and therefore, only spending few dollars.
I like to show you how to make a simple wreath today. In this post, you will find a list of materials needed, and lots of photos to see the step-by-step "how to make it" instructions and of course, photos of the end result.
However, if you are you not “crafty”, you can still make this project. WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR PERFECTION! Let’s do it together, step-by-step. It will help your budget if you have some dry flowers from your garden, but if you don’t, just get some silk flowers and combine them with whatever you have green in your backyard now.
1 (8-10”) wreath (purchased at your craft store, natural, gold painted, or you can paint it)
7 Yarrow dried flowers (these are from my garden but you can purchase what you like)
7 green-glossy leaves (I am using leaves from my Magnolia tree)
7 small branches or twigs from a variegated green of your choice
Glue gun if you wish. (I just tucked the twigs in the wreath, without glue)
If you follow my slide presentation, you will be able to put it together step-by-step. To hang the wreath you only need a nail in the wall, since the wreath have plenty of open areas in the back to hang it, or you can put a small piece of wire in the back and twist it in a loop to hang from there.
There you go, you made it. Congratulations!
