DIY Wreath

blog 018
This wreath was practically free to me.  The only money I spent was about $2 for the 18” wire wreath frame.  I clipped the branches off the evergreens around my neighborhood.  And I had the burlap on hand.  I’ve been seeing these simple, beautiful wreaths all over the place and figured I could make one just as easy.
First, I gathered different sizes of branches from the trees.  If you don’t have any trees around to clip from, a lot of Christmas tree farms will give away the clippings for free.

I used some flower tape and the wreath frame to begin placing my branchesblog 009blog 010
I went around the whole frame, tucking and taping the branches the way I wanted them.  It took me a total 15 minutes I tell ya!  Easiest project ever!
blog 017 Wrapped some burlap around the top and tied a bow.
Brought in a mirror from my dining room and all the other decor I already had.  Total cost of my Christmas mantel this year, roughly $2.
I hope this inspires you to decorate using existing items around your home, instead of spending unnecessary moolah on new stuff.
