Easy Frugal Christmas Wreath Idea
I love Christmas wreaths & I love the use of deco mesh in them that is so popular right now. What I do not love is the price of pre made wreaths that are a minimum of $25.00 and go up to the too ridiculous to mention price. I didn’t want to do a 100% deco mesh wreath because of cost & I wasn’t going for the Candyland look. I made 4 of these for about $8.00 each. This project was fast & easy. I bought all my wreaths & a roll of deco mesh at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. The bows I bought at Big Lots. If you wanted to wait to make these after Christmas you could make them even cheaper with clearance prices!
What you will need:
- Artificial greenery wreath
- Roll of deco mesh (I used one full roll for my 4 wreaths)
- Bow &/or other decorations
Christmas Wreath Idea Instructions:
- Prepare your Christmas wreath by removing any tags & fluffing out all the pieces
- Unroll a few feet of your deco mesh (do not cut it yet)
- Loosely fold the mesh in half and pinch the end together
- Place the end of the deco mesh into the wreath so the end is not showing
- Take a piece of greenery from each side of the deco mesh & twist the greenery around it just like a twist tie. (This secures the deco mesh without needing any other fasteners)
- Move down the wreath a few inches keeping the deco mesh loose and make a poof
- Put the mesh down into the wreath and secure it the same way
- Repeat all the way around then cut the deco mesh before securing the last section.
- Secure the last piece & be sure to tuck the end inside the wreath so it will not be seen.
- Attach your bow using the wire on the bow or looping a piece of greenery through the back.
- Hang wherever you like & enjoy! (I used large suction cups to hang mine on my windows. You could also use Command hooks.)
I love mine! They look so nice on all of my windows & I know they will last for years to come.
