HOW TO MAKE A FARMHOUSE FALL WREATH IN 15 MINUTES
I definitely had a hard time finding any wreaths that were my jam for anywhere close to under $20. Sooo I took a look through my craft closet and the craft store sales ads and came up with this wreath that I LOVE.
I had some remnants from my fall plaid pillow covers. I also found some pumpkin stems for like $8 for 8 at Marshall's. The Eucalyptus bush is form Michael's and I scored it for about 70% off ($5). I was still able to make a full floral arrangement from these materials after the wreath was done.
(for some ideas on how to get these materials cheaper, scroll on down to the bottom)
- 14" styrofoam wreath form
- 13' of 2" ribbon or fabric cut into 2" strips (I used remnants from an old project)
- (8-10) dressmaker pins
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- (2) picks or stems of orange eucalyptus (I cut two stems off the bush shown below)
- Floral Wire (26g) + Wire cutters
- (4) 3" styrofoam or wicker pumpkin picks (I used 4 of a pack of 8)
- 8 feet of 4mm jute twine
Continue to wrap the twine along the ribbon edges. Add another dot of glue to the back side every 2-3 wraps to secure it. Once you've reached just outside the edge of the pumpkins on the other side, cut the twine and knot it. Place one more dot of glue on the back to secure the end of the twine.
TIPS TO MAKE THIS ON A BUDGETTIP #1: USE COUPONS! Here are the coupons I used for this project:
- Michael's 50% off 1 regular priced item on the wreath form (bringing it to $3)
- Michael's additional 20% off sale items on the eucalyptus (already 50% off, bringing it to $5)
