I wanted a new fall wreath as mine has gotten a bit faded, but I didn’t want to spend a lot on it. I found some cute ones I really liked, but they were $70 or more. I just couldn’t see spending so much for a wreath I would only use for a year or two.
Did you know you can make a pretty but simple wreath all on your own ?
All you will need are these things: everything here cost me about $20.
I started by removing the tags from the flowers and arranging them on the wreath as I wanted. I then glued them down and secured the ends with floral wire.
I then added a cute little bow to my wreath.
My wreath was cute but it needed something more. I added this B that I already had.
Have you DIY’d any fall wreaths this year? I’d love to see them!
Some of us have already taken down our Christmas decor and put it away. Some of us have taken down our Christmas decor and haven’t put it up yet. Some of us (like me) haven’t even started taking it all down. I’m going to do it tomorrow. No really. I promise.
Did you know there are all sorts of great Christmas storage solutions out there? It gets better: most of them are fairly inexpensive.
I don’t know about you, but I get tired of breaking ornaments each year while they’re in storage. A specially made case for safely storing ornaments will solve the problem. You can find this soft case at Kohl’s for less than $20 or this plastic divided bin for less than $10 at Target.
If you’re like us, you have a bunch of wreaths. If you’re fortunate to have the space, you can always just hang them on the wall, but if space is at a premium, you can use a wreath box or bag. We have this wreath bag.
Some of you lucky people use real trees and you don’t have to worry about this. For those of us whose allergies don’t allow a real tree, well, storage is an issue. Get some tree bags!! I like this one because it has wheels and it’s much easier to move. I don’t even need my husband’s help!
Happy un-decorating!! We will see you tomorrow for a post about vision boards. Here’s a look at what’s coming up:
If you’ve been a reader here for very long, you know a few things about me:
1. I love signs with quotes and verses
2. I have champagne taste on a tap water budget
3. I am addicted to the dollar stores.
Have you been to Dollar General lately? If you read my post about their fall decor, then you probably have already checked out their Christmas decor. If you haven’t, you should. It’s cute and cheap, which is how I like my decor.
These tree skirts are adorable and would look great with any farmhouse themed tree. You could easily remove the red snowflake from the first one if you wanted. And who doesn’t love red ticking stripe? Such a classic look.
This burlap stocking is so cute!
I love a cute Santa ornament and this fellow is rather unique with his dark outfit. There were several Santa’s.
These lanterns are beautiful and no one will ever know they are from a dollar store.
I bet you knew I’d put a red truck in here somewhere! Check out this advent calendar.
You know I love wood signs- here are three pretty ones.
And these big, old bells would be amazing on a wreath.
I hope you enjoyed these Christmas dollar store finds as much as I did! Have a wonderful Monday!
I love having a pretty wreath on my door. Sometimes I buy wreaths from a friend at church who makes beautiful wreaths, but sometimes when I have a little more time, I make simple wreaths myself. I am going to share a few of my own creations but also a few from around the Internet. Enjoy!!
1. Simple hydrangea wreath
I made this one a few years ago from an oval wreath and some very realistic hydrangeas.
2. Painted letter wreath
You know how much I love monograms!! I made this one entirely from materials I had on hand.
3. Simple tulip wreath from Chatfield Court
This cute little wreath would look great on your front door! You could make it fairly cheaply as well.
4. DIY Eucalyptus Wreath from Bitterroot DIY
This wreath is simple and beautiful! I love it and I love the colors.
5. Hula hoop wreath by Living Letter Home
I’ve never made a giant wreath before, much less one from a hula hoop. But this blog post makes me want to try.
What beautiful spring wreath have you made recently?
