This year I really wanted some afforable holiday decor for our kitchen. I ended up finding these faux garlands at my local Salvation Army thrift store for only 99 cents each! Great deal, plus they were brand new. I figured they would work great for DIY Holiday Wreaths. If you are wanting to decorate for the holidays but are on a limited budget, the Salvation Army thrift store is a great place to start! They have decorations, garland, ornaments, ribbon, gift wrap, pretty much anything you would need for the holidays!
DIY HOLIDAY WREATHS MATERIALS
- Green Garland – one or two depending on how large your wreath is or how many you want to make.
- Ribbon – any colour of your choice. I really like the dark burgundy to add a pop of colour.
- Wreath Base – You could find these at the thrift store or at your local dollar store.
- Hot Glue Gun – If you don’t have one in your craft box already, it’s time to invest in one! They are really affordable and super handy.
Cut your garland to size for the wreath.
Glue the garland onto the wreath base
Add the ribbon or string to hang the wreath
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 to create a DIY Holiday Wreath on a budget and in less than 5 minutes! The best part is these wreaths are reusable and won’t cause a big mess in your home! A simple update would be to replace the ribbon or add some festive material like pinecones or berries. These wreaths could be updated year after year.
COST of DIY HOLIDAY WREATHS
TOTAL: $7.72 (For 3 wreaths! It works out to only $2.57 each, which is a bargain!)
