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.

These are so cute and I love that I don't have to break the bank to decorate with these :)

I was looking for a project like this. This is a perfect activity that I can do with my son. Thank you for this tutorial.

I love the first branchy looking one. I am making my own wreath this year - I'm shooting for a peacock theme.

Those are beautiful. I learned how to make wreaths like that in FFA in High School. It was lots of fun!

These are super cute. Grab these items after Christmas and save them for next year. I love doing that especially craft items.
