Last year I showed you this super easy Fall Wreath and I still love it, but I’m being a bit more frugal this year so I want to share one that’s a little bit different, and about 1/3 of the price to make. This one is also great for the kiddos to make if you’re looking for and easy weekend craft that the entire family can enjoy. Pretty cool right?
Materials needed: (All purchased from the Dollar Tree)
Ribbon (2.5 in x 108 in)
I used straight pins instead of a hot glue gun since the base for the wreath is made out of foam to prevent melting and burning my fingers.
Step 1: Pin the end of the ribbon onto the wreath base. Wrap it around tightly, overlapping but not too close together.
Step 2: When it is completely covering the base, cut off any extra ribbon and pin.
Step 3: Make a bow. Using the burlap ribbon, make about 6 loops, about 5 inches long.
Step 4: Use raffia to tie in the middle. Use the extra ends of the raffia to tie the bow to the wreath. Use pins to hold it in place.
Step 5: Wrap 6 long strands of raffia between the bow and the wreath. Tie it in the back and cut to desired length.
Step 6: Pin leaves in different shapes and colors, to your liking.
Step 7: Tie a piece of raffia at the top to hang.
