Super Simple Wreaths

 

Picture

Fast, easy, and cheap…that’s me…
err…
only while making these wreaths!
🙂
Okay, I know some of you guys may think you don’t have time for do-it-yourself projects…
but how much time have you wasted running around town looking for that one thing that you have been searching for?

I labeled this project fast.  10 minutes tops per wreath.
Don’t try to break any records though…
you may cut yourself…
twice. 
Easy…technically there are only 3 steps!
Cheap…I used what I had.  Last time I checked, free means cheap.
Are you convinced that you can do this yet?
If so, just follow right along!
1.  Find some cardboard.  I used an old pizza box.  (P.S.  Money spent on pizza doesn’t count) (P.S.S. I have no idea where that pizza box came from…;-)
2.  Find something round to trace.  I used a set of mixing bowls.
3.  Cut out your circle (wreath).  I used scissors to do this.  You can use a knife or a saw, but I recommend scissors.

4.  Next, pimp out that cardboard circle and call it a wreath!

I used ruffled ribbon,  fluffy garland, and a feathery boa.
Okay, I didn’t really use a feathery boa, but you totally could.  I just happened to already have that wreath on hand.

Funny story about the fluffy garland…Years ago, after our first Christmas in our house, Craig decided to go post season shopping at Target.  He knew how much I loved Christmas and so he came home with bags and bags of bright and shiny garland.  Lots of garland…LOTS.
I wasn’t quiet sure what I was going to do with it, but I thanked him for his thoughtfulness!

What else could you use?
Cotton balls.
Pinecones.
Ribbon.
Fresh cut branches from your own yard.

I hung them on my wall to resemble a reindeer.
Haha! Just kidding…it’s a snowman silly!

Now my guests have something cute to look at while they are doing their business.

It took me more time to write this post than it did to do this project.

Hopefully, you have been inspired to create on a dime and in no amount of time!

Peace out peeps!

I love you Luisa!! Well, let me rephrase…. I love your mad talented decorating skills and am so happy you are sharing them with the world in this fabulous blog! 🙂
Love the ‘oh so simple’ idea of using garland to create a wreath!! Unfortunately if you look at our house right now, you might think it’s a random day in July. There’s nothing Christmas related up yet except for the lonely Christmas card from a high school friend that Victoria put on the mantle yesterday, LOL!
So hoping it will start looking like Christmas asap and maybe I’ll even find those 10 minutes to make a wreath!
(and the office looks amazing…. you seriously need to start a decorating business!!)

Thank you Nicole! You are so nice to say such sweet things. I know it is hard sometimes to decorate for the holidays…it took me a minute to get my bootie in gear…and I don’t even have kids!!
