Just in time for Thanksgiving, I put together a beautiful Fall wreath using items for Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree, and my yard. Altogether, this wreath did not cost but $5 to make.
I got the grapvine wreath from Wal-Mart for $2.59. And I picked up a bouquet of fake fall leaves from Dollar Tree for $1. I already had the brown ribbon, cardboard, and paint on hand to make the letter, and I picked up mini pinecones from my yard.
I started by take the bouquet of leaves and started snipping off each individual branch. Each branch had 5 or 6 leaves on it. I then placed the branches I between the vines of the wreath. I overlapped the vines and the stems to the leaves were held in place without having to glue the stem. I did, however, use super glue to make some leaves that wanted to curl up lay flat. I left a bare spot to put the letter.
I free handed the letter on a piece of cardboard and used it as a template to cut out a second one. I glued them together and painted it. I tied the ribbon in the bare spot and glued floral wire to the letter to attach it to the ribbon and wreath without gluing it.
I ended up leaving off the mini pinecones because I did not have enough to even out the wreath. I can always attach them when I fine more later.
From there, I sprayed some cinnamon spray all over the wreath and hung it up in the door so it would smell good every time someone opened the door! This wreath was so easy and cheap to do. And to make it better, it is completely customizable to everyone's preferences.
Stay tuned later this week for another Fall and Thanksgiving DIY!
