DIY: Super Easy $5 Holiday Wreath (from Present Bows)

Have a couple bows left over after the wrapping-extravaganza?  Have a whole bunch ripped off of presents in the aftermath?  Craft a smaller, point-ier wreath as a counterpoint to a larger piece…as your final Christmas handmade project.  I got all my materials at the Dollar Tree, so it only cost me $5 to make – but it’s also a great way to recycle those bows from presents if you don’t want to re-use them next year.  Here’s how:

You Need:

DIY: Super Easy $5 Holiday Wreath (from Present Bows)

*2 packages of small stick-on pointed bows
*one larger stick-on bow
*1 small wreath base (styrofoam)
*red ribbon

And…
*glue gun & gluesticks
*scissors

How-To:

1. Cut a length of ribbon long enough to hang the wreath.  Wrap it around the top of the wreath base and secure with glue.

2. Glue the small present bows onto the base, filling the base up completely and staggering them to cover any gaps.

    Hi Carly! I have been following your blog via bloglovin for a while now and for some reason I totally didn't come across the fact that you are here in Portland OR! I am here in Portland Oregon going to OSU and I just thought I'd introduce myself because I love meeting other fashion blogger Oregonians :)

    I featured you in my 'Favourite Blogs of The Month' post on my blog. I think you're doing a great job with Chic Steals. The DIY's and tutorials are my favourite, mainly because I also love to make clothes myself. Keep up the good work!
