Although I love creating and making crafts, I’m not naturally gifted at them. So I love when I come across a craft that’s really easy to do and really hard to mess up. My fall manifesto included making a wreath, and this past weekend, I did just that. I followed this simple tutorial, and I love how it turned out.
The supplies you’ll need: foam wreath mold, ribbon, silk flowers, glue sticks/glue gun, and scissors.
One thing to note: the tutorial says you need 6 ft. of 2″ ribbon. I bought 1 1/2″ ribbon and ended up needing exactly 6 yards (around 18 ft.) of ribbon.
I obviously had to include sunflowers because, well, they’re sunflowers.
I used some twine I had on hand to hang the wreath on our front door.
This project cost me around $20, with the flowers on sale and using coupons (I already had the glue gun and glue sticks). The pre-made wreaths are roughly $40 and include some extra embellishments. So though this isn’t a super cheap project, it was a lot of fun to do, and you can customize it however you’d like. For Christmas I’m thinking of embellishing one of those garland wreaths to decorate our front door. 🙂
P.S. Hot glue gets HOT. So be careful. 😉
