Easy, DIY Winter Wreath

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!

What do you think?

  1. I love it when I can make something beautiful on the cheap! You did an awesome job. I have been grabbing pine branches from tree lots for decades… they are the BEST! I love decorating with them all over my home, and they smell so good too. 🙂 Thanks for joining the fun at the #HomeMatters Linky Party. Pinned and shared. 🙂
