Having beautiful wreaths on your front door usually requires either money or crafting skills. However…I’m very frugal, and I’m not crafty. So you see where that leaves me. 🙂 This year I finally came up with two wreaths that I’m proud of, and I made them using (almost) only things I had on hand!
You can see the arrangement I made for my front door in my Christmas House Tour post. Over the weekend I finished the wreath for our carport door. I think it’s so nice to have a wreath on the door you use every day!
Here’s what you need to make this wreath:
- A grapevine wreath (Mine is from Hobby Lobby)
- One strand of berry garland (Also from Hob Lob)
- One roll of wired ribbon (Mine is from Dollar General)
I just wrapped the garland around the wreath and then secured it with the ribbon. It took a couple tries to get the ends of the ribbon in the right spot to tie them for the bow, but I finally got it. This door is on the side of the house and doesn’t get much wind. You could secure the garland with some floral wire under the ribbon if your wreath will be exposed to a lot of wind.
Do you have any secrets for making beautiful wreaths?
