A few posts ago, I was advised that a wreath would perk up my front entrance:
And so, being stuck in the DIY mode, I rumaged around in my basement, did a little shopping, and went to work.
Materials needed: wreath base, flowers, burlap, scissors, wire clipper, hot glue gun, time, and imagination!
In order to the assemble the wreath, I cut individual flowers off their stems and then folded a strip of burlap into a bow. I arranged the whole wreath to my liking, disassembled it, and then used hot glue to hold each piece in place. I picked up a cool tip on someone’s blog: after the wreath is finished, go over your wreath with a blow dryer and watch the multitudes of hot glue thread vanish! It worked like a charm!
And here’s the after:
Wreath base: $7 (I already had it)
Flowers: $10 (60% off)
Hot glue: $1 (I already had it)
Burlap: $1 (I already had it)
Suction Cup Hook: $1
TOTAL FOR ME: $11
TOTAL FROM SCRATCH: $20
