I used some foam core that I had left over from a past project. (You could also use cardboard.) I traced a very rough shape of a heart and then I cut it out with my razor blade. I made the width of the heart about 2 inches wide.
I then began to wrap my red garland around the heart shape. After I was done I could see the white through the garland. So I ripped up some red fabric and wrapped the heart with it. Then I re-wrapped the wreath.
It turned out real cute. My hanger was brown and I didn't like the look of that, so I wrapped that in red fabric too.
Instead of leaving my Christmas wreath up for the winter, I decided to make a wintery wreath. Again I used a vine wreath that I had in my closet. Then I tied on some snowflakes from the Dollar Store. I made the bow with the same ribbon I used for our presents this year. I just love the bright red and white colors.
So there you have it, two wreaths for under five dollars.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a blessed day.
