This morning I decided to get creative and make a fall wreath.
I took some supplies I had at home and put them with a couple of things I picked up yesterday at the dollar store.
Fall Leaf Garland
Bunch of Fall Flowers
Styrofoam Wreath Ring
Ribbon ( 2 different kinds)
I started by covering the wreath form with the yarn. This was a bit tedious as I wound and wound the yarn around the form tightly as I didn't want any of the white to show through.
Once the form was covered with the yarn I snipped off flowers and leafs with my wire cutters. I then poked small holes in the wreath and put a small amount of the Styrofoam glue on the end of the snipped flowers and leafs before I pushed them into the Styrofoam. I decided not to use any of the ribbon on the wreath since it just did not blend well with the yarn. To hang I tied a piece of the yarn around the wreath, then over the hook on the door, and snipped off the ends. Since I used the yarn as the hanger you can't see it as it blends right in with the rest of the yarn.
I had some leftover flowers and leaves so I used a small willow wreath, purchased at the dollar store, and made a small wreath to hang over the fireplace using the existing candle holder.
By using supplies I already had on hand, and taking advantage of what the dollar store had to offer, I made both wreaths for $4.00.
Now that is the way I like to decorate!
