Handi Mandi TV: Christmas Decor – DIY Wreath

Want to make your own wreath or have one kicking around that needs an update?


This project is easy and affordable for those on a budget. Here’s what you’re going to need:

WAL-MART:
Krylon Aerosol Spray Paint in Brilliant Silver & Brilliant Gold (or another metallic or your choice)
Elmers Spray Adhesive
Elmers Glitter in desired colour (I only saw gold and silver, you may have to go to Michael’s or a craft store for other colours)
Garland
Wreath (Styrofoam for inside or between front door and screen door; wire for outside, because it will be exposed to the elements)
OPTIONAL: Grapevine (Give more shape for wire-framed wreath, otherwise you’re buying more garland)
OPTIONAL: Buy Two sets of Christmas lights in desired colour(s) matching the garland you’re using. (You can also buy them used, but colours may be limited)

DOLLAR STORE:
Rubber Gloves
Craft wire (usually green covered)
Decor or Ornaments (I used 2 packs of small disco balls, two 3-D Stars, and Silver Chain)
~ If you cannot find decor in desired colour, grab the ones that have desired shape and spray with metallic and/or spray with adhesive then add glitter

THRIFT:
Used Christmas Lights (be sure to test them to make sure they work before leaving the store)

RUMMAGE:
Newspaper or Flyers (if you don’t have any you can take them from your neighbour’s recycling bins when they’re being collected)
Cardboard Box
Scissors

I hope you have fun. I would love to hear back from you and hear how your project(s) turned out, feel free to video reply or leave any requests, comments, suggestions, questions, etc in the comment section below. Merry Christmas!
