Remember last week when I shared my Dollar Tree haul? I found so many good things, I couldn’t wait to get started using them. Today I’m sharing how I made a happy harvest wreath. It’s super easy, took less than 1 hour and cost under $20.00.
Here is a list of the supplies you will need:
One 18″ wire wreath – WalMart $2.77
1 1/2 rolls Burlap ribbon – Hobby Lobby $9.99 on sale 1/2 price.
Wire – free as I already had it in my studio
Ribbon for a bow – about 3.00. I bought 2 rolls of ribbon and made 3 bows.
Happy Harvest truck sign – Dollar Tree $1.00
This burlap ribbon is perfect for my wreath for a couple of reasons.
It’s a wire ribbon, which means that it will be easy to use and keep it’s shape.
Any pesky loops going the wrong way?
Simply twist it around to where you want it!
Also, I liked the lighter, more bleached out color of this ribbon.
I won’t bore you with the actual how to on this one.
However, in case you want to know how to make one, there are a ton of how to make a burlap wreath video’s on Youtube!
I found one to refresh my memory and I was surprised to see that the lady giving the tutorial said that it took about 10 minutes to make one of these wreaths.
She must be a ton speedier than I am for sure!
Honestly, I’d estimate it took me about 25 – 30 minutes to make this wreath.
While not hard to make, it is a little time consuming.
Once my wreath was made, it was time to add the embellishments.
This Happy Harvest truck sign from the Dollar Tree is definitely the star of this wreath.
I love everything about this sign with one exception.
The super shiny silver leaf that came on it.
However, that was a super easy fix.
I simply added a few coats of Martha Stewarts Multi-Purpose metallic gold paint.
To hang my sign onto my wreath I used about 12″ of light weight wire.
To give my wreath a little more color, I added this bow that has a ton of fall color.
Honestly, I love my happy harvest wreath.
I can’t wait to hang it!
Now, if it would ever get cool enough here in North Texas to feel like fall that would be awesome.
Right now it’s 105 with no end in sight.
Come on fall!
Until next time….
