My daughter wanted a silver and gold Christmas wreath for her front door. She went shopping with her mother-in-law and didn’t like the retail prices she found.
Luckily, Hobby Lobby was running a half-off sale on all their Christmas items. I bought a 24 inch frame for $5, and two 9 foot garlands for $5 each. I also purchased 2 rolls of wired ribbon for $5 each, and each roll had 90 feet of beautiful ribbon! I have plenty left for other projects
After wiring the garland to the frame, I went to my local Dollar Tree store for inspiration. I found plenty of silver & gold bling to accessorize the wreath. I spent $36 including glue sticks and floral wire to finish the project.
I love the battery operated candles! There were 2 of them in a package for only $1 at Dollar Tree! Wiring them to the wreath was very easy, too.
I spent $61 total making this wreath, and I’ve seen this size wreath sell for $200 and up.
My next project is decorating a vintage wooden sled for her front porch. We purchased it at a flea market about 15 years ago, and she enjoyed using that old sled for several winters.
I’ll post pics of that project when I finish it. I have a 10 day stretch at work coming up, so it will be after Thanksgiving when I begin to tackle that one.
I know there are several weeks until St. Patrick’s Day, but if you start gathering supplies today, you’ll have your decor ready right after Valentine’s Day.
The first project is a wreath I made for my daughter. I gathered supplies from the Dollar Tree and from various inexpensive party supply stores. I think I have under $12 total in this wreath.
The colors didn’t “pop” well in this photo, and unfortunately, the wreath is stored in my daughter’s garage. There is a small black plastic pot located at about 2:00 on the wreath. It is surrounded by gold “coins” that came in a package from Dollar Tree. The green & white bow on the bottom also came from there. The “Luck of the Irish” sign was $2.00 at Dollar General. The leprechaun hat came from a party supply store for just a dollar. It is all on a grapevine wreath base that came from a garage sale for only 50 cents!
