I decided I
needed really would like a Halloween wreath on my front door. Being a full-time college student & married to a full-time college student, we are on a major budget… especially when it comes to Holiday Decor. BOOO! I got the idea to make a budget friendly wreath to help make my home festive!
Burlap is SUPER cheap! I got 2 yards of black burlap at Joann’s for around $4 using a coupon. They had 50% off any reg-priced item this week! YAHOO!
Got the spool of Orange and Black Zebra ribbon at Wal-Mart for $1. LOOOVE this ribbon btw!
Here’s how I did it:
1. I unwound the hook of the hanger so it was one long wire.
2. I formed it into a circle shape.
3. Cut my burlap into 3″ strips. I used about 1 3/4 yards of burlap.
4. I folded the strips back and forth as I threaded it through the wire.
5. Once I had a full-looking wreath, I spaced out the fabric and secured it in random places, using hot glue, to the wire hanger so it didn’t slide around.
6. Finally, I rewound the wire to close the hanger. I ended up keeping the hook part of the hanger so I could hang the wreath from it on my door.
7. Made a quick bow and glued it on! Voila! DONE!
It seems like a lot of steps but the most time consuming part as cutting the strips.
It looks super cutie on my front door!
PS. My hubby gave in and let me put up the decorations a few days early when he saw how excited I was about it all! What a sweet man!
