DIY Christmas wreath under $15!

Hey guys! Here's another frugal DIY project for under $15! I used an old tinsel wreath that I bought at Dollar Tree. I took the tinsel off and headed over to Target when they had the cartwheel offer for 25% off Holiday Decor to buy some garland which came out to $7.50. I also used some old bells that were on a beaded garland. and a bow from Dollar Tree and some letters from Michaels which were on clearance for $0.25 a piece! The results are below!


Things you'll need:

  • Tinsel wreath (from Dollar Tree)
  • Garland (it can be from anywhere)
  • Wire
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
  • Old Beaded Garland (you can use anything else)
  • Letters from Michaels or A.C. Moore
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Acrylic Paint Sealant
  • Big Bow

  • Step 1: Wrap the garland around the hooks on the wreath. Do not wrap it all the way around because you'll need the back open for when you're stringing stuff through.

    Step 2: When you're finished, it'll look like this. Set that aside for now


    Step 3: Paint the letter however you'd like. I chose to go with Red,White, & Green since I ran out of gold. Let dry and then apply the Sealant over it to give that shine and so the paint doesn't chip.

    Step 4: Grab some wire and put it through the bow. Then put the wire through the wreath and twist it to secure it in place


    Step 5: Grab some of your old bead garlands (I chose one with the bells). Cut off the gold bells


    Step 6: String the bells and twist. string the wire through the wreath, twist and secure.


    Step 7: I used the leftover beads from the garland and glued them with my glue gun to the edges of the bow .


    Step 8: Hang it so you can see where you'll attach the letters you painted earlier

    Step 9: Glue the letters to the wreath with the glue gun. You'll have to be quick because it will dry 
    and dried up glue is horrible 


    Step 10: Hang up outside and enjoy!
