Hey, y'all! Today I want to share my very inexpensive winter wreath with you.
I've had my Clemson wreath up since the beginning of football season, but I decided it was time to take it down. When my husband and I were doing some after Christmas shopping at Target, I found the perfect supplies to make a new wreath for winter!
I bought several packages of tinsel garland and a lot of winter-themed ornaments. Of course, everything was like 70% off. I also bought a wreath form from the dollar store.
I started by attaching the end of a tinsel garland to my wreath with a silver pipe cleaner. I wrapped the whole garland around and then fastened the end to the wreath with another pipe cleaner.
I used two packages of tinsel garland and a little bit of another one to completely cover my wreath. Then it was time to attach my embellishments. I REALLY wanted to use the polar bear and penguin ornaments, but I could never find an arrangement with them that I liked. I settled for a bow and snowflake ornaments.
I had some striped ribbon I bought at an after Christmas sale last year that I used to make a large bow. I had some smaller ribbon in my craft stash that coordinated with the striped ribbon. I threaded lengths of those through my snowflakes. I attached all those to the wreath with a pipe cleaner, and, voila, I had a finished winter wreath!
I love how the wreath pops against my green door!
And I hope that just maybe the snowflakes will be a welcome sign for some REAL snow to come visit. I guess I shouldn't hold my breath, though, because it's 75 degrees here today...
Nonetheless, it was nice to be able to put some after Christmas deals to use before next Christmas! You should check out your stash because you may just have the makings of a winter wreath yourself!
