Put a Little Spring in Your Step!
If you are anything like me, you like to change up your decor every season, not to mention all the holidays.
I love wreaths but they can get pretty pricey, so I figured why not make my own! It's very simple and it's a great way to spend your Saturday afternoon!
I went to my local Michaels store and ended up getting most of my materials on sale. If you are an avid Michaels shopper, you already know about their daily coupons which are amazing! Can you tell I'm a frequent shopper myself?!
First things first, choose the size of the wreath you would like (I went with two medium sized wreaths that were under $7.00 each).
Next, pick your flowers (there is always a sale aisle of flowers, that's where I bought mine, some were as cheap as under two dollars for bunches), a bow, and any letters of your choice. I thought it would be fun to make one wreath with a bow and the other with a letter. The only tools you will need are wire cutters or needle nose plyers and a glue gun. Don't try to use your scissors! I learned the hard way.
The fuschia flowers I chose were very easy to work with because the tops popped off, and I was able to glue them where I liked independent from their stems.
As for the remainder of the flowers, I clipped them from the original bunch and weaved the wire stems securely into the wreath. You can also weave the whole bunch if you wish - it all depends on the look you are trying to achieve. As for the bow, I used the twist ties to secure it along with some glue to hold it in to my desired placement.
And that's it! Pretty easy, right? Not only was this fun, it was very inexpensive and took no time to make, and I cannot wait to make more. I have a feeling I will be making a lot of these for every season :)
With spring here and Mother's Day approaching I think these would make fabulous gifts. They are not only pretty, but they are styled by the one and only -- you!
