DIY Christmas Wreath…Yes, Another One

Love it? Share it!

Hello all!

I’m back with another DIY wreath. It seems that all my DIYs involve either signs or wreaths. 😉 I guess I just get stuck on things. But this one was part of a fun challenge I host on Instagram. (Check it out on Instagram at #misDIYchallenge)

A group of crazy talented friends and I put a challenge out to our followers to see what they can create within a specific budget and using only a predetermined supply list. It is always so fun to see what everyone comes up with. Each host creates their own take on the project as examples for our followers and this is mine this time around!

Anyway…I’m going to show you how I put mine together for under $17! Here are my supplies:

DIY Wreath

  • Walmart 20 ” Wreath- $2.50
  • 3 Walmart Magnolia Stems- $3.00 ea.
  • Dollar Store Pine Cones- $1.00
  • Faux Eucalyptus – $4.00

Step 1

Unsmushify your wreath. Yes. Unsmushify. (See last post for my cray cray terminology.) Next, pluck the heads and leaves off your magnolia stems. I know, it sounds violent. I promise, no faux flowers were hurt in the making of this wreath.

Step 2

Start to place where you think you may want your foliage. I knew I wanted two groupings of the magnolia pieces. I highly recommend placing everything before you start to glue it on!

Step 3

Once you have everything placed where you think you will want it, get out that hot glue gun and start glueing into place.

Step 4

Assess the situation. I was definitely not happy when I was finished. My original plan didn’t include the eucalyptus. But the cheapness of the wreath was glaring at me with neon lights after I finished so I knew I needed something else to help camouflage my fake greens.

Insert eucalyptus for the win! I really do love eucalyptus for many reasons and I knew I had a stray stem lying around somewhere. So I went on a hunt and found it stuffed in some random corner. I snipped off each branch so I could spread them out on the wreath and glued away.

Always always make sure you are happy with your final product! At first, I was just going to leave it. But then I remembered that over like 100,000 people had the potential to see this on Instagram and decided to make it better. (Insert wide-eyed freaking out emoji!)

And just for your viewing pleasure, this is how I styled it! For now at least. 😉 I think it will transition nicely to regular winter decor after Christmas is done.

So what do ya think? I was pretty happy to have a wreath that could easily cost $40-$60 in the store for half the cost. Plus, it is fun to flex my creative muscles every now and then.

Be blessed ya’ll!
