The process I Use When Making Wreaths

I absolutely love making seasonal wreaths. I guess you can say wreath making is a staple in my DIY Crafting niche. Through the years I’ve made dozens and dozens of wreaths, for every season, in every color and size you can think of. I’ve made super large ones and tini, tiny ones. From traditional ones made on grapevine wreaths, to not so common ones. In fact, my daughter and I have an inside joke that “whenever I don’t know what else to make….I make a wreath”. And it’s true. It’s my “go-to” craft on my channel.

On this post, I thought I’d share the process I use when creating wreaths. It’s a simple process, actually. However, I feel like I work best when I have a “vision” for it. So, here’s the step by step process I use for creating a wreath.

  1. As mentioned above, I first have a vision for the wreath. I think about the size I want, what season it’s for, colors I want to use, the theme, etc.
  2. I then decide if I want it to be a more traditional one and want to use a grapevine wreath form, foam wreath form or a wire wreath form.
  3. If I decide I don’t want a traditional one, but rather one a bit more unique, I then think….what can I use as the “form” to create this wreath? This is where you can be as creative as you want. I’ve used baskets, hoola hoops, boxes, just name a few.
  4. Once I’ve decided on the form, I then make sure I have the embellishments I need; florals, ribbon, signs, lights, etc.
  5. And finally, I make sure I have plenty of hot glue sticks.

That’s it….this is the process I take to prep for making a seasonal wreath. Once I have everything in place, I begin to create and film.

On a recent video I posted on my YouTube Channel, I created two very unique wreaths using wire wreath forms. You can watch how I made them here 👇👇

Let me know what you think of these wreaths, and which one is your favorite?!

High-End Fall Decor Ideas On A Budget

I’m going to start this post with a question……What is “High-End Fall Decor”? Or, what is High-End home decor in general? I’ll give you my, unofficial, definition……It is decor that looks like it was made with expensive materials or purchased in a high-end boutique or store. There…that’s my definition of what high end Fall decor is. Ok, so maybe there’s a better definition somewhere, but I think it works. And who doesn’t love high-end looking decor, right? They are beautiful, durable and they tend to be on the larger side. However, the reality is that, although we would all like to decorate our home with high-end decor, not all of us can afford it. And this is why I love what I do.

I love taking inexpensive, and at times, unusual items and turning them into beautiful, high-end looking decor. And I love doing it for every single season.

For example, let’s say I were to take a wired basket from the office isle at the Dollar Tree and turn it into a beautiful piece of Fall decor, would you believe me?! Well…..that’s exactly what I did on a recent video. I created a Fall wreath using a wired basket from the Dollar Tree and it came out absolutely stunning! Seriously. And not only did I make this wreath, I also created several more Fall decor that will blow your mind when you see them. And the best part is; they were all created on a budget.
