So I bought a wreath from Target that was on sale and so so so cute. Then I hung it on our oversized front door and immediately took the tiny thing down. “I could make my own” I thought and, drumroll…I DID! Because I re-used some old decorations I had at home, it cost me less than $10.
Of course, I forgot to take a picture of all my supplies before I started (I’ll get this blogging thing down soon!). But in addition to a cheap grapevine wreath, four of those medium-sized floral twigs with holiday berries/balls on them (I have no idea what you call them), and a letter D for our last name, here were my tools:
That’s it! I got the patterned burlap at Michael’s (in the back of the store with the fabrics) and already had the jute and wire.
I strung the four floral twigs into the grapevine wreath, overlapping a bit and not worrying about the space where I planned to place the bow. You can always add more, four was just all I had on hand. Instead of actually tying the bow, I followed these directions I found on Pinterest and it turned out awesome! The bow took a few tries, of course. To secure everything, including the letter D, I just glued, glued, glued! We don’t have much weather here in Arizona, so I didn’t have to worry about winter winds whipping it around or anything like that. If it was going to be outside in bad weather I might have secured the bow and letter with some wire.
I think it turned out pretty good if I do say so myself!
