Pinterest has a whole ton of narratives that show you how to make a variety of different wreaths. Most of them are extremely inexpensive and fun to make! Here are some basic necessities:
Each wreath must start with a solid base on which you attach the decorations. A couple clever crafters used wire coat hangers that were stretched into a circle with a hook at the top. Others used a foam base that you can buy at a local craft store. You can also find beautiful wreaths made with entwined twigs or straw.
Once you have your base, all you have left to do is develop a collection of accessories to form your wreath. These can range from flowers, to leaves or even small gourds. Visit our Pinterest Page to browse through tons of ideas. Once you have your collection of lace, ribbons, leaves, flowers, pinecones, or whatever you plan on decorating with – arrange them around your base and settle on a general arrangement. Use a hot glue gun to permanently fix the trappings to the wreath base.
Let dry, and hang on your front door.
