I really like seasonal decor and I needed a wreath for my door to complete my walkway decor for the autumn season. I considered buying a wreath from Michaels but they sell for around $50 and I had a feeling that my mother in-law and I could create our own masterpiece for much less than that.
So we hit up Dollarama and found everything we needed! Here’s a basic rundown of our supplies.
- Glue gun & cartridges ($3)
- Pins ($2)
- Burlap ribbon ($4)
- Welcome sign ($2)
- Flowers ($8)
- Pumpkins ($6)
- Circle Foam Wreath ($4)
Total Cost = $30
Creating your own handmade wreath is actually super simple and really fun. I plan to do this for every season from now on. First you’ll want to wrap burlap around your foam wreath and pin it in the back. Once this is done, you can begin adding your decor pieces. I chose rustic fall flowers and pumpkins to match the season.
You’ll want to plug your glue gun in for quite a while so it’s really hot. Once it’s heated, glue all of your pieces to the foam wreath. You’ll want to hold each item really tight to ensure a strong hold. Do the same with your welcome sign or any other pieces you wish to add to your wreath.
Next up, create a bow out of ribbon or burlap. Use pins to hold it together and glue it to the top of the wreath. Make sure to leave a little flap to use as the hanger for your wreath.
And voila! You have a beautiful seasonal wreath to hang on your door. Here’s a look at my current doorway decor. The welcome sign is handmade as well, but I’ll leave that for another post.
