Dollar Store Tinsel Wreath

I hope you all had a great weekend! It was a {very} cold and wet weekend, so we hunkered down and did a little Christmas crafting, movie watching, and lots of snuggling. It was such a nice weekend after a couple of crazy busy weeks. 

Vintage Inspired Tinsel Wreath - made using only items from the dollar store

 Like I mentioned before, I’m planning to go with a bit of a vintage vibe in my Christmas decor this year. To bring in some of that retro, I made a tinsel wreath – just like the days of yore. :) I was inspired by Tidy Mom’s tinsel wreath, and decided to do my own take on it using only items from the dollar store.

 To create this look, you will need a wreath form {I used a tinsely one from the dollar store}, two different tinsel garlands, and a few picks and ornaments to use as embellishments.

 To begin,you will wrap one of the garlands around your wreath form. I tucked the end of the garland through the back of the wreath form to keep it secure.

 When wrapping your first garland, leave a little space in between each wrap for your second garland.

 I chose two different garlands to get a variety of color and texture in the wreath.

Once you’ve wrapped and secured both garlands on the wreath form, you can start embellishing with picks and ornaments. Just add a bit of hot glue to make sure everything stays put.

 And there you have it! This hardly took many any time at all and only cost $7 for all of the supplies {and I had a bunch leftover to either make a second wreath or another Christmas craft!}.

This wreath went to live in this fun corner of our guest room. The “Joy to the World” letters are scrapbook stickers and can be easily removed.
