Dollar Store {DIY} Wreath

DIY wreath
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)
Grapevine wreath
2 bushels of flowers
1 Roll brown burlap ribbon
1 Roll colored burlap ribbon
Hot Glue Gun
Scissors

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

Lastly, you'll add the flowers. Since you have removed these flowers from the stem, you will need to use hot glue to apply then. I usually place them in the spots where they look the best, but you can put them wherever you see fit. You could always leave the flowers on the stems and bunch them together.

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!

  6. I so appreciate this post, because my door is currently wreathless! (I typically either grab one from my mom's stash of custom wreaths in her basement or pick one up at Michaels.) I love that you used materials from the Dollar Tree! Whenever I'm planning an event, I pick up everything that I possibly can there first. So many great basics that can be combined into gorgeous things! I know what my project for this weekend is going to be :)
