DIY: Fall Wreath, Only Cost $11 To Make!

4 years ago

Last christmas I really wanted to pick up a wreath for my front door..all of the wreaths i came across were around $30-40 and more. I couldnt justify spending that much money on something i knew would be alot cheaper to make myself, so thats exactly what i did..made my own christmas wreath. Because i enjoyed it so much and it cost almost nothing i decided this year i would make a Fall wreath.
I headed to Michaels in search for my items i would need to complete my wreath. I looked forever and for the life of me could not find a "stick" wreath or whatever you might call it. Any other type of material i felt would look strange with the fall colors i had in mind for my wreath. So, since i couldnt find my wreath at michaels i decided to find the items i would use to put onto the wreath. Michaels always has a great selection of DIY projects for the holidays so i had no trouble at all picking out a few items.
I decided on some glittery orange and yellow fake leaves, then i picked up a few more decoarations with clear plastic drops on them as well as two little punpkins and a squash. These decorations are super easy being that they have the long stems that are bendable, you basically just stick them in the wreath and bend them in place and WA LA you`re done.
When i got the register i found out all of my decorations were 75% ..score!
Next i headed to walmart and lucky me i found the perfect wreath, and it was only $5. My total for my entire project was $11.02..not bad if you ask me ;)
That night i started in on my wreath, it was easy enough. I placed the decorations around the wreath where i thought they would look nice. I then began bending them into the wreath, i did come across some trouble as some of the decorations were a bit lose and didnt want to stay, luckilymy boyfriend is an electrician and had some extra wires laying around..i used them to twist around the decorations and they stayed perfectly.
I took one of those removable plastic hooks you can buy at the store with the with the sticky back-they hold up and last forever and worked perfectly to keep my wreath on my door.
Overall i am happy with my wreath but did notice the placing of some of the decorations looks a little off, let me know if you notice : I may go back and redo it or move the the pumpkins around.
I hope you enjoyed my DIY Fall Wreath and let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading!
