Happy 4th of July! I whipped up this front door wreath last week and wanted to share with you how easy and inexpensive it was to make.
The wreath form was purchased at Hobby Lobby for $5. I have a better tip for you though!! Because I had enough decor items left over for a second wreath, I turned a pool noodle into a wreath form. I saw the idea on Pinterest, man I love that web site. The pool noodle from Walmart was only $1.50. I trimmed about five inches off one side with scissors and then taped the two ends together. I may do this for all my wreaths since it worked so well.
I wrapped the wreath with this spool of inexpensive sparkly ribbon from the Christmas section. Yes, Hobby Lobby already has a Christmas section!
This also works with the foam pool noodle, just stick things into the wreath form.
So the ends don't fly free, I poked them into the top to secure them.
I learned this technique for easily adding flourish to your projects from a florist. Cut strips of ribbon first.
Then add a little hot glue to one end.
The bunches of flowers don't have to be expensive. These were $6 a bunch and I just pulled the petals off and added hot glue to the back and then applied to my wreath.
If you don't have a door hanger, just make one with ribbon which I stapled to the top flat surface of my front door. With the excess ribbon, I tied a bow for decoration. So easy and fun for the holiday!
