Transforming a plain pre lit wreath into something beautiful is easy. I purchased an unadorned pre lit wreath and then decided on what kind of look I wanted it to have. This one was made for my daughter in law last Christmas and I wanted it to be fun and festive.
I used deco mesh to make a puffy bow to place on the center. I made this one by simply cutting a strip of mesh and gathering it together into puffs and securing the loose ends with a pipe cleaner.Then I pushed the pipe cleaner into the greenery and tightened it in place.
The Dollar Tree is the best place to find all sorts of little embellishments. They usually come in packages with multiple pieces. For four dollars, I bought packs of the mittens, berries, pinecones and balls. I used a small amount of hot glue to hold them in place.
I had the snowflakes on hand from a purchase I made a number of years ago. I use them on one of my trees each year. Each one has a tiny string on it for hanging, so I tied them to the branches of greenery. Often when I’m making a Christmas wreath, I find that if I sort through boxes of unused decorations, I’ll find all kinds of new ways to use things. The amount of holiday items I have accumulated over the years is crazy. But it’s so hard to pass up something cute and reasonably priced!
The K initial is foam and added a little sparkle to the wreath. I used a silver elastic string to tie the letter to one of the branches which allows it to hang freely.
Using a coupon at Michael’s for the wreath, finding little embellishments at the Dollar Tree and sifting through my own stash of decorations, I made this for under ten dollars. I was happy that my daughter in law loved it!
