Halloween is over which means I can start decorating for Christmas….right?
I love getting in the holiday spirit and I wanted to create some of my own decor this year for three reasons:
- I can make something just as cute as something store bought that is way cheaper
- It gives me a nice study break 😉
- I can take pride in knowing I created it!
One of the decorations on my list to make was an easy and classy wreath for our front door. My mom and I went to Michaels and found the materials to make this wreath. Almost everything was 50% off, so this was super cheap to make. All together this project cost $20.41, compared to around $35-$50 for a store bought wreath.
M A T E R I A L S N E E D E D
- 4 Plain green branches with pine cones (on sale for $2.99 each, originally $5.99)
- 1 Frosted green branches with pine cones (on sale for $2.99 each, originally $5.99)
- Grapevine Wreath (on sale for $2.50, originally 4.99)
- 2 Gold glittery berries ($0.74 each)
- 2 Red glittery berries ($0.74 each)
- Hot Glue Gun (I had this already)
- Wire Cutters (to cut the branches a part)
T H E S T E P S
- Cut pieces of branches off the plain green branch (of just one single branch) and make sure to cut off the long stems with the wire cutters as well
- Lay the branches so that they all face the same direction when “fanning out”
- Glue the plain green branches onto the wreath
- Cut pieces of the frosted green branches and glue sporadically throughout the wreath
- Cut a part the glittery berries and place sporadically throughout as well
Voila! You have an easy, classic, and cheap wreath! 🙂 If you give this craft a try, tag your photo on Instagram @thebalancedguru I’d love to see your creation 🙂
