3 DIY Wreaths for Only $6
Let me first start off my saying that the reason it was possible to make 3 wreaths for only $6 (plus tax) was because I was re-using wreath forms. So, this year as you discard your wreath, think about if there are parts you can save to make a new wreath next year.
If you look at the picture in the upper right you can see the 3 forms that were a large grapevine wreath, a foam green wreath (you could get something similar at the Dollar Store) and a straw wreath (which only sell for a few dollars at Wal-Mart.)
All of these wreath forms were left behind at the cabin we bought, so I just went to Dollar Tree and bought some supplies (6 items worth) and got some yarn from my knitting bag and used some hot glue I had and cut some branches off of an evergreen outside at the cabin.
My daughter decorated the straw one, while I did the others two. I laid out the pieces on the forms before gluing or tying them in to place. I am pretty happy with how they all turned out and we have 2 newly decorated wreaths at the cabin (plus a third one I told you about last week) and one at home.
