I think it’s safe to say I have been LOVING creating our wreaths this year! I definitely wanted to DIY a Christmas wreath, since I’ve already done a Spring & Summer, 4th of July and Fall wreath previously. I wanted to do this wreath a bit differently though instead of using the grapevine wreath I’ve used all year.
So this time around I bought a foam circle frame that’s 14″ round…this was $6.99 but I used a 50% off coupon at Michael’s and got it for $3.50.
I used this red glitter ribbon also from Michaels that is 1.5″ thick, and 25 feet long. I ended up using the entire roll on the wreath! Michaels had the ribbon for 70% off last weekend! I ended up getting this for $2 – score!
Here’s how I wrapped it around the wreath…I did it pretty close together, you could space it out a bit more I’m sure. I just wanted to be safe and not have any of the green foam show through anywhere. Also, I ended up cutting the ribbon every few feet so it was easier to wrap around the wreath…I used hot glue to keep the pieces in place, and also at the end of the ribbon. I tucked it in the back underneath, and then glued it down.
Here it is fully wrapped – so pretty and sparkly! But not done yet…
Next comes the center wood piece. You could honestly leave this out if you don’t want your wreath to say anything. It would still look awesome without it. It’s about 14″ long and 5″ wide…this was $2.99 at Michaels.
I hot glued it onto the wreath to secure it…
And then glued some of these bells from Michaels onto the wreath…these were originally $5.99 and were also 70% off, so I got them for less than $2.
I got three of these cute decorative bushes from Michaels too – they were 50% off. One was originally $1.50, the other two were .99, so I got all three for about $1.75. I ended up clipping about 2 inches of wire of the ends of these, and then tucking them into the ribbon of the wreath. You could also easily hot glue them into place.
And finally I used my Cricut to cut the words “Merry Christmas” on vinyl and placed them onto the wood! If you don’t have a Cricut, no worries, just paint the words onto the wood and it will still look amazing! Or you could buy sticker letters and just place those on too 🙂
And here is the final wreath…I absolutely love it. Might be my favorite wreath yet! I used burlap to hang it, because our front door wont close with a wreath hanger on it.
And now for totals:
Foam Wreath Circle Frame: $3.50
Wooden Sign: $3
Winter Bushes: $1.75
Wreath Total: $12.25
Amazing price for a wreath that will last so many years! I kid you not, this really did take me 15 minutes. Just make sure you have your hot glue gun ready to go!
There you have it – I hope you enjoyed this easy wreath DIY!
