Have flowers all summer long with this easy-to-make wreath.

Crafting Time: 30 - 60 minutes

Materials

Instructions

  1. Use scissors to remove flower blossoms from stems. For some stems, you may need to use wire cutters.
  2. Use straight pins to attach the flowers to the front and sides of the wreath. Completely cover the straw and place flower types and colors randomly to create a flower garden effect.
  3. Cut a piece of wire or dental floss. Tie this to the top of your wreath to create a loop for hanging.

This are pictures of what I call Anything Wreaths, just to show you can make your own wreaths very inexpensively out of just about anything. Both are made using grapevine bases, which I picked up for pennies at yard sales, and a glue gun. The larger "gold" one is filled with gold holly leaf sprigs that had pink jewels attached, which I got free from a friend who was going to throw them out. It is now on my front door.

For the second smaller one I cut apart four sprigs of poinsettias, two gold and two silver, that I had also picked up at a yard sale - smaller pieces go farther than keeping them in one piece. The ribbon bow on the first is also homemade from yard sale ribbon. I got two beautiful wreaths for next to nothing. If I can do it, you can too!

Have a great holiday!

I am an avid garage saler and yard sale person. I collected plastic fruit for several months I purchased at yard sales to make this Della Robbia wreath. It cost me less than $10 to make and is very nice for your front door. I also purchased the evergreen wreath to attach everything to for less than a dollar.

Craft stores sell the basic wreaths plus so many goodies to add to them and they have free classes sometimes.

Here is one I made for Easter a few years ago.

Gather pinecones and twigs for free. My sister hung hers on their front door and birds built a nest in it.They used the side door until the babies hatched out and left. Then she had the real birds nest as a decoration..Hows that for free?LOL~ GG Vi

If you have forsythia bushes, use the long branches you trim off in fall to make a rustic wreath. Put a gloved hand around the branch and slide down, taking off most of the leaves. Coil a few in a circle and tuck ends into the coil or use wire to hold in place. Then add as many as you need to make it fuller, staggering where each begins and ends around the circle. It's good if you can wrap them around a bucket or other round container for a form, then let them dry out. You can glue or tie on other things like seed pods, grasses, etc. that you find in your yard, or things from the store like silk sunflowers, pansies, etc., and some raffia. This makes a nice rustic wreath to hang outside. Sometimes they look great just by themselves without any ornamentation, esp on outbuildings or a garage. When it gets too weathered and ugly, just send it to the compost pile if you used all natural stuff on it. I had some that were in a covered place on the house and they lasted several years before I tossed them. The best part is you're getting your materials for free. (I thought this up when thinning our bushes one year. We didn't have grapevines so I thought I'd give this a try and it worked pretty well)

I purchase wreath forms from thrift shops for very little. I wrap the form with duct tape to allow for better adherence. Then I hot glue pine cones, acorns, seed pods, etc., to the wreath form. Once finished, I clear all the "glue strings" off after the glue cools. I hang the wreath in a well ventilated area, and spray the wreath with clear spray paint. Let it dry and you have a gorgeous wreath!

You can spiff up boughten wreaths with natural elements. I got a small basic wreath with a few ornaments for 99 cents then wrapped pine around it and added some seasonal berries, all held on with a good ribbon for a neighbor. It's amazing how well it turned out!
