SAVE MONEY. DIY.
So I know some of you are frightened out there when it comes to being crafty, but really, if you know how to glue and twist wire, that can get you a long ways and save you lots of money. Here’s how I took a simple wreath I got on major clearance last year after Christmas and spruced it up and decked it out for a stunning Christmas wreath!
- floral wire
- glue gun
1. Weave lights in and around the greenery and attach with floral wire every now and then to secure it in place.
Make sure to leave the plug-in part at the bottom or buy battery operated lights and don’t worry about it!
2. Attach pinecones and berries with a hot glue gun.
My wreath already came with pinecones and berries attached. I got it for a steal after Christmas last year.
3. Attach ornaments to the wreath with floral wire.
Don’t forget to cluster some together.
4. Wrap ribbon in and around the wreath and make a bow for it. Attach the bow with floral wire.
Here’s a couple more shots of our Christmas decor surrounding our mantle. I made the garland on the mantle pretty much the same way I did the wreath except I didn’t attach the pinecones but instead just lay them throughout the garland every year.
