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.

Why do I always forget to shop the dollar store for craft items?! This is a great idea. I’m also thinking some of the elements you found could be combined several different ways.

they have burlap ribbon at the dollar store now? It is so expensive any place else. I will have to get right over there- I love burlap ribbon but hardly ever buy it – it is so versatile you can do almost anything with burlap

I did an untraditional wreath that I made, also from the dollar store. I love shopping there! It cost me only $3 plus some ribbon that I already had. Check it out on my Instagram (http://instagram.com/theaprilnoelle

What a great fall wreath idea! I really like the ribbon you used! I think I’ll ask my daughter to help me and we’ll make a wreath this weekend too!

The fall wreaths look really nice and so easy to make. Thanks for showing the steps on how to make one.

Now that was pretty much easy to do! I could make a Christmas wreath too, I’d just look for Christmas colors to use. Thanks for sharing!

The wreath you made is great. I like that it’s easy enough that I could do it too.

I love this idea! I have some of those leaves at home so I just need a few more things.
