If you have ever tried to have a custom wreath made, you know they are damn expensive. And don't even get me started on the crummy ones from the craft stores. I firmly believe that so many people believe the pre-made wreaths are their only option when it comes to cute front (or back) door decor, but that is definitely no longer the case! If you're looking for a cheap and easy wreath DIY, I have got you covered!
Materials: (all purchased from Dollas Tree for $1)
2 bushels of flowers
1 Roll brown burlap ribbon
1 Roll colored burlap ribbon
Hot Glue Gun
First, you'll need to remove the flowers from the stems. This is super simple, just tug on the flower part itself and the two pieces will separate easily. You will want to make sure you have between 7-10 flowers for a wreath this size.
Next, you will bunch the two colors of burlap ribbon together and insert them between various stems of the grapevine wreath.
You have bunch the ribbon in to a "U" shape and pull it through the grapevine branches, make sure there is roughly 1/2 inch of ribbon pulled through the backside of the wreath, this will ensure that the loops will not move or be pulled out. In order
Once you have completed the full circle of the wreath with the burlap ribbon, cut the ribbon with an excess amount of ribbon, because you will be pulling this part all the way though the wreath instead of making a loop.
Once you have completed the entire loop with the ribbon, I always recommend dabbing a little hot glue on the back of the wreath where the ribbon has been pulled through to ensure there is no movement with the ribbon
Honestly, there is no excuse for not having an adorable wreath on your door or doors! I spent a total of $5 on this wreath, and used hot glue and scissors I already had. I'd love to see some of your cheap & easy DIY wreaths if you have any!
