Frugal Winter Wreath

Here is my new wreath for Winter.  It was super easy to make, and cost only a few dollars.
Here is what you will need:
Plastic Snowflakes ($1 @ Walmart)
A Glitter Star (1$ @ Walmart)
Hot Glue
Exacto Knife
Optional (faux pearls)

You will need one large kitchen bowl, and one small bowl, to use as a stencil for your wreath.  I cut the cardboard out with an exacto knife.  Then I wrapped my fat yarn around it, until the cardboard was completely covered.  I glued down the end of the yarn to the back side of the wreath. Next I cut the string off of the star ornament.  I used this small piece of string to make a hanger for my wreath on the backside.  I used hot glue and a snowflake to make it pretty.

Then I continued to hot glue the snowflakes, star ornament, and some faux pearls, to the front of the wreath. For only a few bucks, I am pleasantly pleased with how it turned out. 

Happy Winter time!

  8. I love the idea of having a wreath that can be used even after the holidays. It seems like after you take down all the Christmas decor the house seems so empty.

  9. This is so cute! I just love the sparkles and glitter (that aren't toooo overwhelming, but still super-cute) and the fact that it was such a frugal project is even more awesome! : )
