Autumn Wreath DIY

Don't you just love those pretty, autumn wreaths folks are hanging on their front doors this time of year? They're lovely, festive...and expensive! We are all going to be spending enough money on the holidays as it is, and you know I'm always up for a challenge, so I decided to try my hand at an inexpensive wreath DIY.

Supplies (All of these can be found at the Dollar Tree):

Foam wreath base
Faux autumn leaves and flowers if desired
Wire cutters/gardening shears

How to:

  1.  Using your wire cutters, cut strands of your faux leaves/flowers, leaving enough of the wire 'stem' to poke into the foam wreath.
  2. Do a test arrangement before securing the faux leaves, just to make sure you like the look/fullness of your wreath. 
  3. Poke the ends of your wire stems into the foam wreath. Repeat this step until the entire wreath is filled. 
  4. Once you are done, turn the wreath over, and tie a loop with string to hang on the door.

See how easy that was? Now you have a one-of-a-kind wreath, and you saved $30+.
