I was looking forward to purchasing my dream wreaths to celebrate our first holiday season in our new house. After our kitchen ceiling fell through, and we were forced to renovate one of our bathrooms, our budget shifted a bit. I’m happy to report that I was able to make these $30 DIY wreaths. (Pictured right below)
Fresh wreaths, garland, and trees are always my favorite. However, I don’t like the idea of having to buy them every year. We will never forego a real Christmas tree. I decided I would try to go faux this year with the wreaths. So, I ordered a few faux boxwood wreaths. I was fully expecting to be disappointed.
When they arrived in the mail, I couldn’t have been more delighted to see what great quality they were given the budget-friendly price tag. I went to Michael’s and purchased way too much plaid ribbon. I watched a few YouTube videos and learned how to tie the perfect holiday ribbon.
Most of our windows open from the top and bottom, which made hanging them very easy. However, one original window still remains. For this window, I used a command suction cup to hang the wreath. I placed it near the top and wrapped the ribbon around it, making it invisible from a distance. The wreaths held up a powerful wind and rain storm earlier this week.
