Today I'm sharing my little floral wreath I made using items from the dollar store. I absolutely love the way it turned out, and it's the perfect little wreath for spring.
It's probably no surprise that my wreath is coated in pearls, glitter, giant crystals, disco balls, and butterflies.
I saw this amazing wreath from Horchow back in December when I was brainstorming ideas for Christmas wreaths (and ultimately ended up making this). I just couldn't stop thinking about it.
Horchow's White Floral Wreath (seen below) is absolutely gorgeous. I remember seeing it and thinking hmmmmm...I could make that.
And I did.
But my own sassy version.
Must. Have. Sass.
All of the supplies came from dollar stores and craft stores.
It took a little time to make, but was super easy to do.
Here are the supplies I used to make my wreath.
1. Basic wood wreath ($3 at Joann's)
2. 4 stems of assorted fake flowers ($1 each at Dollar Tree = $4)
3. 1 strand of glass pearls ($1 at Joanns)
4. Green glitter butterflies ($1 at Dollar Tree)
5. Giant Crystals ($1 bag of 'table scatter' from Dollar Tree)
6. Glue sticks and glue gun (on hand = free!)
7. Mini disco balls from my Christmas ornament stash (free!)
8. Small silver beads leftover from Christmas garland strand (free!)
9. White ribbon (50 YARDS scored for $1 last year here)
TOTAL = $10
To make this wreath, start with a basic wreath form. Since the top will be exposed, I chose a simple wooden stick wreath. Using the largest flowers, center the flower heads among the lower half of the wreath.
Once your large flowers are in place, fill in the remaining bottom half of the wreath with the smaller flowers. Try using several different sizes and shapes of smaller flowers to give the wreath a little texture.
Now, it's time to add a little bling. I just randomly chose whatever I could find at the store/my house. I finally settled on pearls, giant crystals, mini-disco balls, small silver beads, and green-glittered-butterflies.
Once you've attached all of your bling with your hotglue, cut a long piece of ribbon and wrap it around the top of your wreath.
I attached the ribbon right to the wall with a single silver nailhead, right above my fantle.
Jesse opens and closes the front door like a Woolly Mammoth and I don't have a mantle over the fireplace.
So, the fantle it is.
And that's all, folks!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
