I love decorating our entryway for Christmas. This year I decided I needed wanted a new wreath for the door. Earlier this year I had received an adorable red and white ornament wreath, but it seemed too small for the door. I decided to place it on the wall beside the door and purchase a larger wreath for the front door. I found a wreath I wanted and then looked at the price. I didn’t want to spend that much on a wreath I’d be using for less than a month. Instead, I was able to make this adorable Easy DIY Christmas Wreath for around $10.
How to Make An Easy DIY Christmas Wreath
I started with a trip to my local thrift store to find a wreath. I found the green wreath for around $2. Here’s a hint: if you find a wreath you like but with ugly decor on it, see if the decor will be easy to remove. The wreath I found had a faded yellow ribbon and a couple of pieces of weird greenery, which I picked off as soon as I got home. I also picked up a package of three glitter words that said “Peace” for 99 cents. If you’re not lucky enough to find something like this, head to your local craft store and pick up a wooden sign. It’s easy to give it a quick spray of glitter paint.
Another craft store tip- search for deals after the holidays. I found a bag of large premade ribbons for $2 after Christmas last year and put them in storage. If you need a bow now, stop by the Dollar Store where I got the rest of my supplies. At the Dollar Store, I picked up 5 clip-on holiday sprays for $1 each. Tip: You might have to rummage through several boxes on their shelf to find matching ones you like.
Here’s a list of the supplies you’ll need to complete the wreath:
24-inch green wreath
12-inch wide bow
5 ornament, floral, or other holiday clips of your choice (use a mixture of clips for a fun holiday look- I used three bird clips and two ornament clips)
1 holiday glitter sign of your choice (or use a wooden sign and glitter spray paint)
The assembly was easy. I positioned the Peace sign in the middle of the wreath and tied it on with ribbon. Once it was in place, I laid out the clips on the wreath until I found a position I liked. Be sure to take a minute to decide where you think they look best on your wreath and then attach with the clips. I tied the bow to the top and voila! it was complete.
You could make a bow if you have the skills to do so with ribbon from the dollar store. Sadly, the bows I make “from scratch” are not something I want to display. I thought the wreath turned out lovely and I am proud to hang it on my front door. If I get tired of it in the future, it’s easy to swap the clips for another theme.
