Confession: I have not had a wreath on my door since Christmas. I make custom wreaths for people but I didn't have my own.
Quick fix: The other day I was working on cleaning out the craft room that will soon be a classroom during the day and I decided to make a wreath out of what I could find.
For the base, I used a small foam wreath form that came with a kit from Target. I bought it on clearance for SUPER cheap just so I could have the wreath form. (Why do foam wreaths cost as much as they do?) I had one roll of polka dot burlap ribbon and some chevron ribbon left from a project. And the flowers. They were left over (read: never used) scrapbook kit from when I was still living in traditional scrapbook denial. (bought a lot of stuff, but never did it)
To assemble the wreath I wrapped the polka dot ribbon all the way around the wreath and used 2 pins to secure it. I tied the chevron bow just like a regular bow and worked it into place until I was happy with it. I used 2 pins to attach it to the top of the wreath. The flowers were just laid out and pinned into place.
Not a drop of glue. How easy is that?!
