Winter Snowflake Wreath on a Budget


Winter Snowflake Wreath

Christmas is over, the weather is super cold, and its back to the grind.  For me, that means I need a project to keep my spirits up.  I found these snowflake ornaments and wreath for 70% off at Superstore and a wreath at Homesense for five dollars that got my creative juices flowing.

The stars were falling off the wreath, and I wasn’t a huge fan of the yarn, so I set to stripping almost everything off the wreath.

Next I placed everything where I thought it would look good, and started attaching the ornaments.  Almost all of the stars had fallen off or were loose.  They were previously attached with hot glue, so I didn’t want to repeat that mistake.  I used leftover ornament wire hangers and a needle nosed pliers to attach everything instead.

I wrapped wire around the stars themselves, then attached another wire to the back to connect the star to the wreath.  Even though hot gluing everything would have looked nicer, the wires weren’t noticeable and looked on purpose.

Finally, the finished product!  Perfect for hanging up during January and February.  You can hang you wreath up by wrapping a matching ribbon around it, or by using a metal hanger.

The project was super easy and cheap to make.  I had to stop to take pictures of the different steps, but if you were only doing the project, it would take around 30 minutes.  Since I used discounted Christmas ornaments, the total cost of the project came to under $10.  ($5 for the wreath and $1.50 each for the two different packages of snowflake ornaments.)
