Easy Christmas Wreath

I walked into the Dollar Tree yesterday and the employee looked me straight in the eyes and said Again?? I feel like I’ve been there every day this week picking up random craft supplies… all so that I can inspire YOU to create some cute Christmas decor without breaking the bank. I know I’ve said this before, but I love all types of crafts and I love sharing that passion with others. For me, crafting is therapeutic. I truly get in the zone when I’m crafting, everything else seems to disappear… like the laundry on the couch and the dishes in the sink… they seem to magically not exist anymore. Anyways, crafting doesn’t have to be expensive… so I love to do these Dollar Tree DIYs for you each season. My hope is to get those wheels turning in your brain so that YOU can make something for your home! So here we go… I’ve got 3 different wreath ideas for you… Ornament Ball Wreath Supply List: Ornaments (I purchased 12 packs, random sizes – medium, small, and mini… I didn’t use all of them, but having that many sizes gave me the ability to pull what I needed from each pack)Wreath (Dollar Tree has Wire & Styrofoam wreaths in their floral section, use what you prefer)Ribbon (I recommend at least 2 to wrap the wreath)Hot Glue Gun/Glue SticksScissors Video: This one was probably the most difficult for me, not because it was hard, but because I wanted to make things symmetrical… and I really shouldn’t have. I needed to just let go and place the ornaments where ever. As soon as I did that, I was much happier with how it looked. So that’s my two-cents. Just have fun and place larger ornaments with random spacing and then use the smaller ones to fill in the gaps. Poinsettia Wreath Supply List: Poinsettia (I used 7)Wreath (Dollar Tree has Wire & Styrofoam wreaths in their floral section, use what you prefer) Ribbon (I recommend at least 2 to wrap the wreath) Hot Glue Gun/Glue SticksScissors Video: Ta-Da!! Simple and classic! Farmhouse Truck Wreath Supply List: Unfinished Farmhouse Truck (or ANY of their unfinished pieces)Wreath (Dollar Tree has Wire & Styrofoam wreaths in their floral section, use what you prefer) Ribbon (I recommend at least 2 to wrap the wreath, I also used leftover ribbon from the Ornament Wreath) Embellishments (I used leftover sprigs from the Poinsettia bunches)Hot Glue Gun/Glue SticksScissors Paint (I use Apple Barrel paint from Wal-Mart, 50 cents and works great!)Paint Brushes Video: I love how the truck turned out!! So cute!! As I waited for the truck to dry, I wrapped the wire wreath with ribbon. I played around with embellishments for a solid 20 minutes, just trying to figure out where I wanted to place them! LOL! After rearranging SEVERAL times, I finally had everything where I wanted it. Not too shabby for a Dollar Tree Wreath! In fact, I’d say its pretty darn cute!!! Happy Crafting!!
