A couple weeks ago I shared some spring wreath inspiration and great resources to buy a beautiful spring wreath for under $50. Well, if you’re anything like me and like things to be real affordable, then today’s post is for you! I’m going to show you how to make a wreath for under $10!
Now, I suppose for it to be a real DIY post, I should have process photos, but this project is so simple and quick that I totally forgot about taking any! It’s really only a couple steps and takes about five minutes.
I got my supplies at Hobby Lobby. They sell grapevine wreaths for $4.99 (and I used their weekly 40% off coupon!), so you can get the base for your wreath for next-to-nothing! Then pick what greenery or florals you’d like to use in your wreath!
I wanted mine to be simple and asymmetric, so I chose a fern branch and some eucalyptus-looking thing (can you tell I’m no gardener?!). The real trick to doing this project on the cheap is to wait until Hobby Lobby has their florals for 50% off. Thankfully, the day I went they did, and so I was able to snag all my greenery for $5.50.
Then I simply cut the branches down (you’ll need wire cutters or some sharp pliers), stuck them into the wreath, twisted them to the same shape, and secured them with the wire left over from the cut-off portion! Wah-lah! If you plan to do flowers, I would suggest using a hot glue gun to help secure them, but I found with these branches that intertwining them and using some wire worked great.
Enjoy! Please let me know if you try this out… I’d love to see your wreath!
