Well, since I couldn't manage to even keep my head up for very long yesterday, I am very happy to say that I have actually been up and about today, and managed to complete a craft I've had brewing in my mind. So many times, I visit our craft stores, and see overpriced, even though they are beautiful, wreaths. I mean, I get it. Some people don't have the time to make one themselves, or the "skills" to make one, but I simply don't believe that's true. This wreath cost me well under $20 to make, and took me about 15 minutes, and that's only because I managed to burn my fingers with the glue gun, and had to treat them. As for skill, yes, I believe some people have an eye for things, but honestly, you could just copy one that you have seen in a magazine, or even up on those walls in the store. What I'm trying to say is, YOU CAN DO IT!
When making a wreath, I like to lay out the decorations before securing them to the wreath, so I can tweak anything I might need to before hand. For this wreath, decided I'd like to alternate between the larger ornaments and the little balls, with a red bow at the bottom, to tie into the rest of the décor where this wreath is going to be placed. Once I decided on this layout, I started to glue them down. Just a little glob on each of the smaller balls, and a good sized glob on the larger ornaments. I like to make sure stuff is secure. I'd hate to pass by one day and see something hanging off or missing completely. Like I said before, I managed to burn my fingers while gluing these down. It was one of the little balls that got me, so please be careful.
And there you have it! A finished wreath, that anyone could enjoy, for under $20! I hope you have taken away from this tutorial, just how easy it is to make a wreath yourself. The possibilities are endless as far as patterns, and materials. Just do what suits you, and I'm sure you will love the outcome. Thanks for stopping by!
