Im not very experienced or great at making wreaths yet. But I like them for inside the home as well as the front door. I wanted a very inexpensive way to create one so I got all my materials from Dollar Tree. I know- based on my blog you would think I go there everyday! I almost do!
Cost: $5 (I already had the glue gun, spray paint, buttons and small sized ribbon)
Grape vine wreath
roll of fall season wire ribbon
fake loose leaves
clip on sunflower
any other ribbon you like
I lightly sprayed some gold paint on the wreath without totally covering it. I just wanted to add some pretty and warm sheen to the wood. It dried fast. Then I wrapped the entire thing with some thin sparkly gold ribbon. I attached it at the start and finish with a hot glue gun.
Next I glued the large bottom bow on. To make the bow I folded a foot long piece on both sides and glued the ends together in the center. Then I wrapped a small piece around the center and glued that to the back. Next I cut two medium sized pieces and attached them to the back to make the pieces that hang down. I know it would be great to have pictures of this but I made it so quickly I forgot to take any!
After the bow was made and glued to the wreath I experimented with placement of the leaves, buttons and the miniature pumpkins and squashes. I glued them on, once I was satisfied with the placement. I had to hold the pumpkins and squashes down for a minute while the hot glue dried so they wouldn't fall off.
After everything dried I clipped the sunflower on. It has an alligator clip on the back.
