Looking for a thrifty wreath idea to decorate your door for Thanksgiving this year? Well, look no further, because today I’m sharing how I made this easy fall wreath…on the cheap!
Decorating your home for the holidays doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money. There’s no reason to break the bank when you can get your DIY on. That’s right, you can make your own holiday decor and save money. That’s exactly what I did when I decided I wanted a new Thanksgiving wreath for my front door. Since I recently completed a month of zero spending and I’m on a roll with saving money, I started out by shopping my two favorite stores ever….
Yes, my attic and my craft supply closet are my favorite places to shop because everything is FREE! I found a straw wreath form, floral pins and an old pillowcase I started to donate to Goodwill earlier this year. I’m so glad I decided to hang onto it, because it was the perfect fabric for this project! I purchased the Give Thanks cross and wired ribbon from my local Dollar Tree Store. That means this beautiful wreath project only cost me $2 plus tax. Isn’t that amazing?? That leaves a lot of money in my pocket for other items I need, and with the holidays rapidly approaching I know it will come in handy.
Let me tell you how easy it was to make my new Thanksgiving fall wreath so you can make one, too. See if you can find your supplies on hand at your home, or check out your local dollar store.
I started out this project with just a few items:
- straw wreath form
- floral pins
- fall decor sign
- hot glue/glue gun
I cut the fabric into small strips. I wrapped the fabric around the wreath form and secured it into place with floral pins.
I continued adding the strips of fabric to the wreath form, slightly overlapping each piece as I worked my way around until it was completely covered with fabric. I made a bow with the ribbon and added it to the wreath.
I hot glued floral pins to the ends of the cross fall decor. Once the hot glue dried, I attached the cross to the wreath by pushing the pins into place. Now it’s time to admire this thrifty $2 wreath.
If you ask me, this easy fall wreath is lovely. That houndstooth fabric is oh so beautiful to me! I love the way the deep burgundy cross and ribbon stands out against the neutral fabric wreath form.
Now every time I come home, this wreath reminds me to be grateful for the things I do have and to thank God for all He’s blessed me with. It is the perfect wreath for Thanksgiving, don’t you agree?
