I am amazed at how creative people can be with a dollar or two...or six. A quick Google search for Dollar Tree decoration ideas, and I was on my way there for minimal supplies to make this cute summer mini wreath...thanks to a blog post I found from "Clumsy Crafter".
I spent a total of $6.00 on a Styrofoam wreath, spool of ribbon, bundle of flowers, pack of butterflies and two packs of nylon clothesline. The only other item that I used to make this wreath was my handy dandy hot glue gun.Time spent in making it...roughly an hour.
Start by wrapping the nylon clothesline around the Styrofoam wreath. I used a big dot of hot glue on the back of the wreath and pressed the nylon into it to start attaching it. Then about every two inches of wrapping it around, I added another dab of glue to help hold the nylon in place.
Then I did the same thing with some pretty green ribbon. I added a dot of hot glue to attach the ribbon, wrapped the ribbon around the wreath, finished it off with another dab of glue, and cut off the excess ribbon.
Lastly, I hot glued three flowers around the bottom of the wreath, poked two butterflies into the Styrofoam to hold them in place, and added a piece of ribbon around it to hang it on the front door...DONE.
I thought the color scheme of the wreath went well with my "welcome" flag.
Another day, another dollar, another inexpensive way to decorate.
