Get ready to unleash your inner artist, and let’s dive into the world of DIY Christmas wreath crafting on a budget!
For this project, I started with a brass wreath ring set from Dollar Tree.
I used the medium size one of the three rings.
Open the ring on one side by cutting with wire cutters.
Thread Christmas bulbs onto the ring. You can use any color combination you want, I decided to stick with red and gold.
I filled the ring until it was about half full.
Once you have the bulbs in place, add a dab of hot glue at each end to secure them in place.
Join the cut ends with duck tape.
Cut several greenery and colorful picks of choice.
Arrange them in a swag style and join them in the center with rope and hot glue.
Cut a small piece of foam
Add hot glue to the top
And place the taped portion of the ring on top
Then add more hot glue and add the swag on top of it.
Grab jute string
Tie it around the foam and swag and tighten around a few times and tying it in a knot to really secure it in place.
Add any ribbon you’d like that compliments the design around the middle portion. Wrap it around a few times
And then tie in a tight knot on top, leaving some long strands to be able to hang the wreath.
Add a poinsettia in the middle of the arrangment with hot glue.
And that’s it! What a beautiful Christmas wreath and on a budget!
Will you give it a try!?
