Quick Wreath

How many of you have seen the pre-made wreaths at our favorite craft stores? There are some super cute ones out there...but the price tags are NOT at all cute. I for one am not spending $99 on a wreath... just can't do it. So, I set out to make my own. I am not really great at floral arranging and greenery "stuff" but I did my best and am fairly pleased with how it turned out.

I started with a wreath for $4.99 and walked up and down the aisles of the store adding things to it until I felt like it was 'enough'.

I wrapped it with ribbon just for an added touch. I would have preferred wider ribbon, but this is what I happened to have on hand already so I went with it especially since it was a last minute thought only because I saw it in the bottom of my craft box while looking for the hot glue and floral wire.

Then I just added the leaves, berries, pumpkins and one flower to the wreath as I went. I didn't hot glue or wire anything until I was sure of the arrangement. Here's the final result!

My only problem is trying to figure out where to put it. I tested it on our front door...but it just wasn't right. I have it hanging on the door to the garage where it just may stay unless I get creative and find another suitable spot.
Have you made your own wreath? We'd love to see...

  1. What was your final cost? I was at the Home Goods store yesterday they had wreaths for $24.99 and up. I thought to myself ( there has to be a cheaper way!) I plan to make one this week and will link back.

    Who is your favorite craft store?

  2. WAY TO GO GIRL!!! I love it! OK, so maybe I should do this... did you get your wreath form from Wal-Mart? I didn't see any at HL like this?

  3. Been looking for a cute wreath to make. Thanks for sharing!

  4. @Jessica I usually go to Hobby Lobby... it's 5 min from my house so it's easy!!

    I just added it up and the wreath was less than $15 (everything I got was 40 or 50% off).

  5. @katie newton they're at the front right corner of the store (near the wedding 'stuff'. on the very last aisle of the store. they have all sorts of grapevine wreaths and this was only 4.99. plus i think it was 1/2 off.

  6. Sweet! HL has just been added to my to do list!

  7. That looks so great!! I wish I could put together a nice looking wreath, I always fail!

    You are so creative!!
