Tis the time of year when wreaths are in, but the stores try to sell them for an arm and a leg. Hammond Design Group wants to show our readers how to create their dream wreath for only $20 (with some assistance from coupons). Below you will find pictures of our quick steps and also a video link from YouTube that we found very helpful.
When we purchased all of our materials Michaels had a coupon for 20% off your entire purchase and a 50% off a single item. They also will typically have coupons for a 20% off one item. Either way coupons are reliable available on their website.
- GRAPE VINE WREATH $18.99 (We used a 50% off Coupon)
- Fabric of your choice, but try to find the fabric that has a similar texture to burlap. $3 – $6
- Pipe Cleaners $7.99 (we got these on sale for $4)
- Fake flowers (not needed but if you want this would be a nice addition) $3-$8
- Wreath hanger
- Scissors or X-ACTO Knife
- Cutting Board
- Hot Glue gun and Hot glue sticks
Cut the ribbon 10” long. (We ended up using 3 rolls of ribbon)
Twist the Pipe cleaners to the wreath. Do this every 2”-3”. We recommend you use brown or beige, so the pipe cleaners match your wreath. (We did not remember to take a picture of this step, but the YouTube video will show you)
Fold the ribbon a back and forth, creating little bow ties. Use two pieces of ribbon per pipe cleaner. Make sure the ribbon is securely twisted inside the pipe cleaner.
Spread out ribbon so it looks full. Continue this pattern around the wreath until you get the desired look that you want.
Add flowers and hang wreath on wreath hanger. (Use the hot glue gun to add the flowers.)
