While walking the isles at the Dollar Tree I saw a variety of pretty V-day ribbon. I started thinking about what I could do with it, and for some reason a wreath popped into my head. I had no idea how exactly I would make this wreath, but I started buying materials to make it anyway. And the best part? All the materials came from the Dollar Tree. I take it back, the LOVE came from the Dollar Spot at Target. Point: nothing was more than $1.
4 spools of ribbon = $4
1 pkg. hearts on a stick = $1
LOVE = $1
wreath base – $1
A grand total of $7!!
Once I got home and looked at all my stuff, I figured out what I was going to do.
I grabbed a can of red spray paint from the garage and went out in the frigid cold to spray my wreath base. It didn’t have to be perfect because it would be covered with ribbon, but it needed to be red.
While the paint dried I cut the ribbon into pieces about four to five inches long. I didn’t measure any cuts. I just eyeballed it.
After cutting the ribbon, I folded each piece in half and twisted the fold so it resembled a knot.
I used a hot glue gun to attach the ribbon to the wreath base. I put the glue in the crevices of the wreath then stuck the twisted end of the ribbon down in the crevice.
There was no rhyme or reason for the placement of the ribbons other than alternating the two different ribbons. After I had gone all the way around, I filled in some bare spots around the inside and outside of the wreath.
Remember these pieces?
I pulled the sticks out of the hearts and used the hot glue right on the ribbon to attach them and LOVE to the wreath.
When I was finished. . .
It turned out like this!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
