Have you seen the price of ready-made wreaths lately? $100 and up! Considering we have double doors and need to have double wreaths, I decided to make them myself.
And it wasn't hard. I went to Hobby Lobby when they had 50% off their Christmas stuff and bought the materials which consisted of:
1. a ready-made swag
2. a roll of 6" mesh ribbon (30' long. Plenty for more than two wreaths.)
3. a roll of contrasting 21" mesh ribbon (30' long. This is enough for two wreaths.)
4. very thin, bendable wire
The star of these wreaths is the wide mesh ribbon. It was also 50% off.
Learn from my mistake and sew it by machine or even by hand, using a running stitch.
Gather up the bow at the middle and wrap thin wire around it, twisting the wire ends. I LOVE this wire. It's so easy to use.
Cut to the length you want and wire it to the center of the bows. I just left it in one long length, folded in half at the top, but you can cut it into two if it works better for you.
So whether you need a wreath for spring, summer, fall, or the holidays, buy these four materials and in 30 minutes you're done!
