.:Tutorial Tuesday - Christmas Wreath on the Cheap:.

It’s about time to start decorating for Christmas (if you haven’t already!) so I thought I’d share an easy Christmas wreath that you can make for cheap! Our Christmas wreath is about done for after weathering a few winters and our move, so I was in the market for a new one.


I bought all of the supplies for this wreath either at the dollar store, or in the dollar sections at Target and Michael’s. I was actually really impressed with the selection at Dollar Tree!

Here’s what I used:

- foam wreath (with a flat back)
- glitter monogram
- glitter mini ornaments
- ribbon
- glitter pinecones
- glitter bows
- large glitter bow
- hot glue/gun

I started off by wrapping my wreath with ribbon, securing it with hot glue at the beginning and end.

Next I hot glued the monogram to the back of the wreath so that it would hang in the center of the wreath.

Since the bow was so huge, I didn’t want to put it at the top of the wreath because then it would totally cover the whole thing. So I glued it to the bottom of the wreath, and then started gluing my accents how I wanted them. This is how it turned out:


Pretty easy, I know. Probably doesn’t warrant ‘tutorial’ status, does it?


It probably took me only about a half hour to make. Great results for such a short amount of work, don't you think? And I really love how it looks on my black door.


Happy wreath making!
