Guys, do I have a super easy DIY project for you! By now I’m sure you know how much I love Dollar Tree florals, and how I like to use them for different seasons in my grapevine wreath. Well, if you didn’t know that, you can catch up HERE and HERE. I just couldn’t let you down, so I came up with a great little Winter wreath.
My whole holiday decorating theme this year is focused on metallics. My tree is decked out in gold and bronze, while I have some other decor dedicated to silver and pewter. I decided to do a nice little mix with this easy winter wreath.
When Christmas stuff first started making it’s appearance at Dollar Tree back in October, I quickly snatched up a few gold and white poinsettia bushes, and silver leaves (a long with a lot of other stuff ). I figured I’d find somewhere to use these, and at $1 a piece, who could really beat the price?
Then it got even better! When we bought our tree this year, I noticed the huge box of cut and discarded branches. Of course, I asked if I could have some, if they were just going to be tossed anyway. The nice guy said I could take as many as I wanted! Believe me, I showed major restraint, only grabbing up about an armful 😉 My hubby just rolled his eyes at me as I loaded them in the car next to our tree. I knew I could find some great use for those discarded branches.
I am SO glad I snatched them up, because I think the pine branches really make the wreath POP!
For the top, I had originally placed a burlap bow I nabbed at Big Lot’s 50% off, but it really took away from the metallic look. I stumbled across these plastic pearl beads when I was unpacking boxes and knew that it would be a great little addition. It just gives the wreath a more sophisticated look, I think. Even if those pearls are just plastic!!
Overall, this was a very easy, quick, and CHEAP wreath to make. In total, I spent $3 on the florals. The wreath and “pearls” I already had, and the pine branches were free!
