Happy day friends! In the next few weeks I am going to be introducing you to some new faces. They will be sharing all budget friendly/dollar tree seasonal decor and craft ideas. Back in the day, I was a helper of newbie bloggers. I hosted a weekly linky party and they all joined and shared their creativity. Not only did they make new friends, but their blogs grew with new readers. Nothing made me more warm and fuzzy inside than to see that. Sadly, after two years I gave up doing that, as truthfully, it was a huge time commitment for me and I felt these gals were well on their way. Now, it’s super duper hard to get a new blog up and running and I thought perhaps me just having some new guests over is a good way to help them get their cute and creative faces out there.
Hello, my name is Susan. I blog at Love of Home. I’m so happy to be here with you today and a big thank you to Debbie for inviting me to share a project with you! I love to make wreaths but I like to spend very little. I found this wreath form at the Dollar Tree. I think the key is to stock up when you see basics like this. I love when they have the grapevine wreaths those are great bases too!
You’ll need a foam ring or wreath form that can be wrapped. A scrap of burlap, I used about ⅛ of a yard, hot glue, pine cones, ribbon and twine or something to hang your wreath.
I started by cutting strips of burlap and then wrapped them around the form gluing as I went along. I wanted to do something different so I used the inside rim of the wreath to put the pine cones on. I bet they would look cute on the outside too and it would make the wreath larger! I had some plaid ribbon left from Christmas (I’m a sucker for plaid!). I hung it with some twine I had on hand. My cost for the wreath was $1 for the wreath form!
If you’re not a fan of the ribbon you can use whatever you have on hand. The plaid ribbon is pinned to the form so I can change it out when the mood strikes! These pine cones were bleached so they are a bit lighter in color. I shared how I did this for the cranberry pine cone garland I made. If you come by the blog you’ll see I LOVE pine cones. We have tons of them and the best part is they are free!
I put together a post of three of my favorite pine cone projects if you’re interested!
Have a great weekend!!
Thank you Susan for sharing your very nifty, thrifty winter pine cone wreath. Y’all go take a visit over to Susan’s. She is a mom of three children and lives in the WNY region originally where I am from! I met Susan this past year virtually though blogging and I just think she is a doll face. You may have another gal to add to your reading list.
