For years, I have wanted to make a Spring wreath for my front door but just never seemed to make the time. The past few weeks since Spring has come I have noticed so many of my neighbors have these stunning wreaths. I have been living in wreath envy for too long.
While I was walking through the craft section at my local Walmart last week I stumbled upon a cute grapevine wreath the was under $5, how could I pass that by. Being a reformed extreme couponer it is still in my nature to try to make projects for the least out of pocket cost I can.
After my cheap wreath find, I was determined to make myself a new Spring wreath for less than $15. A trip to the dollar store was in order, I was able to pick up 3 bundles of flowers and a wooden letter for just over $5. Being a bit of a crafty girl I already had paint on hand from other projects that I used.
My totally cost to make this wreath was just under $15.
What you will need:
- Grapevine wreath (or your wreath of choice)
- Fake flowers (I bought mine at the dollar store for $1.25 per bundle)
- Wooden Letter (Bought at the dollar store for $1.25)
- Paint brush
- Hot glue gun
Paint your wooden letter to your preferred colour, and place aside to dry.
Place flowers into the grapevine wreath in your desired placement.
Place a touch of hot glue to the back of the flower and press, so that nothing blows out in the case of a windy day.
Cut off any ends of the flowers sticking out the back.
Once flowers are in place figure out where you are going to place your letter.
Add hot glue to the back of your letter and press onto your grapevine wreath.
Then your wreath is ready for the door.
I hope you enjoyed this cheap and easy Spring wreath!
