I am so excited to share my first creation on Friday Finds! If you missed the introduction a couple weeks ago, Friday Finds is a new series I’ll be posting two Fridays a month. They’ll range anywhere from crafts, do-it-yourself projects, pictures, etc. I am really looking forward to this new little adventure on my blog!
It’s no secret I’m a HUGE fan of Halloween! I love that my husband loves it as much as me. We usually decorate the outside and inside of our home about mid-September because we adore it so much. It’s such a fun holiday.
This year I decided to create a new Halloween wreath for my front door. It was super simple to make and only cost me $18! Yep, that’s it. So cheap! If you were to buy a typical holiday wreath at a store they can get expensive. It’s so much funner and pocket-friendly just to create one yourself!
I went to JoAnn’s fabric store and purchased everything for my wreath there. Some of the things were on sale. Score! Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- 18″ Vine Wreath
- Different colored ribbons ( satin orange, black, black & white chevron striped)
- Fall leaves/ berries
- Do Not Enter sign
- Floral wire
- Glue gun/ glue sticks
I started wrapping the satin orange ribbon around the right side of the wreath, adjusting where I wanted it and gluing it to the back side of the wreath. Then repeated this with the other colored ribbons, wrapping over the empty spaces of the wreath so each ribbon would show.
I took the Do Not Enter sign and wrapped a little wire around the top and then wrapped it to one side of the wreath to hold it. I pulled the wire under neath the ribbon so it wouldn’t show. Next time I will do this step first. It would be much easier that way, then wrap the ribbon over the wire.
Last, I glued pieces of leaves and berries in different spots around the wreath.
The end result was this:
