Dollar Store Christmas Wreath

Wednesday, December 12, 2018


Hello blog friends.  I hope you're all enjoying this holiday season.  One of the ways that I have been enjoying this season is by doing some crafting.  

Each year I really love making my own Christmas decorations.  






I really wanted to make my own Christmas wreath this year for my back door.  I was so happy and thrilled to visit the dollar store back in November for all of my supplies.  I LOVE the Dollar Tree store!

I also used some items I already had in my stash such as the ribbon and garland.  I bought the red and white ribbon (that was already curled) in a local card store and the garland in a local dollar store.

This wreath was so much fun to make and it took me less than a half hour to make.


SUPPLIES TO MAKE WREATH:



  • 5 Christmas Ornaments
  • 1 Bow
  • Garland - I had this in my stash
  • Red and White Ribbon - I had ribbon in my stash (The ribbon was already curled) 
  • Glue Gun
  • Small Wreath
  • Small Door Hanger



I laid out all of my supplies on newspaper.

I took the pine cone and holly off of the red bow as in the photo above in the lower right hand corner.  I used instead the red and white ribbon.  The red and white ribbon came already curled, so I didn't need to curl the ribbon.  I used the twist tie on back of bow and tied it to the wreath.

Next I decided where I wanted my ornaments to be placed on the wreath.




I next heated up the glue gun.  Once the glue was hot, I hot glued the garland, ornaments, and bow onto the wreath.

  5. Lovely!!! Your wreath turned out so pretty. Question: What kind of ribbon did you use? How did you curl your ribbon so prettily?

  10. I just love your wreath! I can't believe you found such cute things for it at the Dollar Tree. I see all these crafts in blogland made from dollar store stuff, but when I go in there, the cute things are nowhere to be found!

  12. This is awesome Julie. My daughter was just telling me that pintrest has a lot of picture of people decorating their houses this Christmas with all dollar tree things. She said the decor was so pretty. Your wreath will be right there with the others that decorate from the dollar store. This is really cute.
    Happy Thursday.
    Hugs,
    Kris
