After wandering into the danger zone (aka Micheals), I was inspired and determined! I was going to make a beautiful wreath for fall and was not going to pay the ridiculous Micheals price for a wreath.
Well, before class one day I went to Dollar Tree (the cheaper danger zone). I found supplies to make the wreath for a grand total of five dollars. Oh yeah!
Here’s what I bought…
- An 18” wooden wreath
- A 13” wooden wreath
- Two fall colored flower stems
- A garland of fall colored leaves
What I had/borrowed…
- Brown grosgrain ribbon
- Chelsea’s hot glue gun
First, I set them up how I wanted them on the ground (more space than the table as I like to
make a mess spread out while I craft).
I used the ribbon to hang the smaller wreath inside the larger wreath and used
hot glue gun to secure the ribbon.
After that, I just kind of went for it and started hot gluing leaves on here and there and EVERYWHERE! Then I cut off the flowers and some of the beads that came on the same flower stem. I proceeded to glue those on and it was perfect :)
Our apartment is now totally decorated for fall… but more on that later!
Until then… HAPPY CRAFTING and HAPPY FALL Y’ALL!
